Impressive building and a larger than usual choice of ales for a Spoons. The one I chose wasn't the best but I may just have been unlucky! I would give it another chance when I am next in the area.

The Crosse Keys follows Wetherspoon's trend of naming some of their outlets after former local pubs, in this case an ancient Gracechurch Street coaching inn, rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1666 and surviving until at least the mid-19th century.
Opened in 1999, this was the headquarters of the Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank - huge doesn't do the place justice. To paraphrase Obi Wan: "That's no moon. It's a Wetherspoon's". The interior is rather plush, no doubt pandering to what must be the company's wealthiest client base. At centre, there's a large oval bar with seating all around with many customers eating. It's the deep coffered ceiling though that's most impressive. Out of the rear fire escape, and there's access to a small churchyard. The list of ales is impressive and the quality is there, but of course you now have to pay in advance of being served which isn't on, although at least it's cheap - for London - with two pints coming in at £6.90.
The interior may be impressive up to a point, but the noise of chatter and poor acoustics means that it's very noisy in here with little in the way of creature comforts - if you like drinking in a posh airport departure lounge with flashing games machines this may appeal. There's also the advantage that it's open until 11.00 pm on Saturday and 9.00 pm on Sunday, when hardly anything around here is open at all during the weekend.
As far as the ale department goes, this place ticks many boxes but as with virtually all 'spoons, there's nothing for the all-round traditional pub enthusiast.

A vast selection of real ales and craft taps in a huge and splendidly imposing interior but, as mentioned below, the brewery promotion material was very out of place. Possibly because it was a Monday but quite a few of the 18 or so ales were out so ended up with my 4th choice which was at least in good condition. Certainly somewhere you could have a good session.
