A poster outside and in boasts ten real ales always on, I counted 12 and 5 ciders, with no "coming soon". The layout is much as 'Spoons afficonado Aqualung describes. Given the beer turnover and Wetherspoons buying polices all a 'Spoons needs is decent staff and a fairly competent cellarman to be a pub worth visiting. This one excels all round, service, choice and beer quality make it a destination in Woking. Rightly listed in GBG2016.

Aqualung . left this review about The Herbert Wells (JD Wetherspoon)

The reason for the split personality of this pub mentioned below is that it was originally called just Wetherspoons. It changed some five or more years ago, apparently originally to Herbert George Wells and then just Herbert Wells.
If they had used the initials rather than the full names I might have twigged sooner who the hell Herbert Wells was!
It's an old school Spoons dating from June 1995 and is clearly some sort of shop or office conversion so hardly needs describing. I thought it was looking a bit tired but that may have just been because the three previous Spoons visited had been completely different to this stereotypical one.
It's large enough to host 3 sets of six hand pumps but one bank contained just Abbot and five ciders. The second one had Adnam's Broadside, Hogs Back TEA & HBB, Loddon Hocus Pocus, Courage Best and Wickwar Christmas Cracker. The third contained GK Abbot, Mordue Headmaster's Christmas Sermon, Stonehenge Rudolph, Hogs Back TEA, Twickenham Sundancer and Doom Bore. I went for the Mordue beer (£2.25) which was in great nick.
It's a GBG regular and it would seem from that esteemed publication that the only other outlet Woking has to offer is a Railway club. I think I will pass on checking whether that is really the case. It's got a decent beer and cider selection and that will do for me.
