Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Greenwood Hotel (JD Wetherspoon)

Very imposing roadhouse, dating from the late 1930s, and built by Courage (as indicated on some of the tiling). Substantial, staple-shaped main bar to the left of the original main lounge bar entrance, then the rear Dining Hall (also with its own counter) off to the right, the side Green Room (with a former small servery of its own), small ex-'Jug & Bottle', etc. Although modernised by Wetherspoons, many original features remain (with some impressive Art Deco lanterns) and the place still operates as a hotel. Also has tables out on the front patio by the former main entrance. Total of 18 handpumps on different parts of the counter, with mostly standard offerings supplemented by the local Enefeld London Pale Ale (£1.99) and Kelham Island Pale Rider. Overall, a hugely impressive building, and had the staff been more attentive it would have scored a '9'.

A new-ish JDW in pristine condition, very well described below. I think I counted 7 ales on draft plus 3 'coming soon'. There was also a very good selection of craft ales and ciders. I had a pint of Banks's Gold Ingot, which was in superb condition. The food was well cooked but slightly let down by the quality of the ingredients – somewhere as good as this could afford to buy better and I'd be happy paying a couple of quid more for a better steak. I found the staff a bit amateurish, but otherwise this is a very good 'Spoons, certainly the best I've been in to date.

This new (Summer 2016) Spoons is a conversion of a classic inter-war ex Courage Metroland barn. An old West London beer guide reveals that it was owned by the JT Davies pub group who bought up the Brakspear estate in 2006. One thing that struck me about it was that it seemed to be the largest original pub I had ever seen. Many of these Metroland barns have closed over the last 30 years becoming completely unviable with fewer people visiting pubs and smaller shop conversions defying the restrictive covenants on new pubs in the Metroland housing areas.
It's been converted to one large area but not necessarily by JDW. My old West London beer guide reveals that the old off licence area had been taken over by a florist.
It's been more than well described below and I'm not even sure that I saw the entirety of it. One thing I did notice was that the windows and doors were original plus I would think much of the wood panelling. This means that it has the look and feel of an original pub.
One of the challenges for this place is that unless you're a keen rambler it's in the middle of nowhere. There is a bus stop on either side of the road but served only by the 487 bus which takes a very long winded route from Willesden Junction to South Harrow Station, although it is a reasonably frequent service. The nearest station is Northolt Park about half a mile away but that is only served by an hourly service between Marylebone and Gerrard's Cross.
It wasn't too busy on a Tuesday morning but there were a couple of brats rampaging around and a solitary daytime brigade type announcing over his phone in a voice loud enough to permeate the entire pub that he was "well oiled".
The main bar area which is in a U shape has ten hand pumps at the front, two sets of two at the side and four at the rear. The front section was closed when I arrived before midday but I assume any beers there were available. Beers noted were the JDW Trio Of Doom, one available soon, two ciders, Deuchar's IPA, two JDW International beers and GK Abbot Reserve. I was disappointed that there were no cask Locale beers but I think I may have missed another bar. I went for the International Adnam's Belgian Blond (£2.49) and a "craft" keg option Sambrook's IPA (£3.69) both of which were excellent.
I thought this was a top Spoons not just in terms of London and the South but UK wide. It's well worth a look.
