Steve of N21 left this review about Sir John Oldcastle (JD Wetherspoon)

A very run of the mill paint by numbers ‘Spoons that is fairly close to Farringdon station and as referred to by a previous reviewer handy if you need some breakfast and the loo, which is exactly what we utilised it for post emergence at the nearby station.
Fairly standard offerings on the pumps as well but this being the festive season there was a reasonably well kept Butcombe Chris Moose which was fairly understated for a winter ale, but you can’t blame the pub for that. However, it did take a lot longer to reach me than it should have as I got the trainee barmaid on her first day, which again I guess I can’t blame the pub for as that’s something you should expect as part of the potential package when you walk through the door of a ‘spoons..
Also for me, not one I would make an effort to rush back to.

Run of the mill Spoons handy for the station. My pint of Acorn pale was in excellent shape.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Sir John Oldcastle (JD Wetherspoon)

Standard-issue Wetherspoons, with a large 'L'-shaped bar. Used to have a reasonable range of beer from the banks of six handpumps, but I have found a disappointing selection in more recent visits, with a total of seven different beers on this occasion, and only the Welton's Hurricane and Itchen Valley New Hampshire (expensive for the chain at £3.40) being of much interest.
