Strange pub in a long arched building, set back a little from the road through a nice patio area. The L-shaped room has a slightly garish décor and seems to be mainly fitted with padded seating groups for, err, groups. the ales were a bit disappointing, with just Doom Bar and a house beer from Portobello on pump, and the latter was not very nice. A selection of craft fonts were also present. It certainly gives no clue it was once a Wetherspoons.

I think that this was probably once one of the area's myriad long-closed cinemas into which I was dragged as a group a few days ago.
You enter from the street and pass down the central aisle of a spacious patio with electric heaters into a fairly large single-storey building which goes back a fair way, with a long bar along the left wall. You don't need a pub guide to immediately notice that this is a bar aimed squarely at the twenty-something age bracket who probably travel a fair distance to reach here.
Décor is modern and contemporary as you'd expect with no freaky novelties - a bit of a lounge bar but with one or two games machines, a jukebox and an acoustic duo doing a Bowie tribute at a bearable volume. Food flits from what Americans call 'food' to Italian, tapas...
Ales: one clip reversed, thereafter Sharp's Doom Bar and Fuller's London Pride which was ok, but then again Pride is never going to get the pulse racing. I didn't clock the price as we were in rounds but the cost didn't cause eyebrows to raise, though this area's hardly cheap.
All in: a passable bar but not my type of thing, though I think my relative level of enthusiasm would probably dwindle if visiting on a Friday or Saturday night or if there's a game on at the Emirates.

Quite a large place but there wasn't much in the way of real ale. Won't be returning.
