This is a long, thin Wetherspoons which is reasonable enough for a quick drink or a cheap meal. It’s nothing special in any sense but it’s okay and i was happy to find a table. London Pride in okay form.

Now reopened after a refurbishment. Well they called it a refurbishment, all they've done is wiped its arse: it still matches PSM's description below perfectly. It being half term it was busy late afternoon with families from out of town using it as a canteen, along with the usual JDW daytime suspects. They clearly weren't there for the beer. Half the clips were turned and most of the rest doubled up for the trio of doom. I forgot to note what murky unpleasantness I had a pint of, but a lack of the emotional energy required to deal with the unfortunates behind the bar coupled with a desire to vacate the premises as soon as possible prevented me from returning it.

There are many, many far better pubs within five minutes walk.

Large, standard Wetherspoons, some booth seating towards the rear, or usual tables/chairs
