According to the London Drinker they have now sold the lease to Sainsbury's.does this mean "the end is nigh?"

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ship of Fools (JD Wetherspoon)

Not a very inspiring 'spoons, with some rather dubious clientele as well. Long rectangular bar, with several slightly-raised seating areas. Standard furniture and decor. A total of 15 handpumps along the counter, and there is usually a fair selection of real ales on in addition to the regular Abbot, Directors and Ruddles (e.g. the pint of Westerham Audit Ale I had on my last visit). Not really a place to linger, so OK for a quick pint before moving on.

The Ship of Fools is a Wetherspoons pub that is located handily across the road from East Croydon Railway Station. The interior is much larger than the standard Spoons frontage suggests as this pub stretches a long way back. There is a raised seating area against the front window and opposite the long bar that is located along the right hand wall. I counted 15 hand pumps and as my visit was on St Patrick’s Day afternoon it coincided with the JDW beer festival so there were many different ales available. Obviously there is a large selection of standard draught and cheap food is available all day. Three plasma screens are located throughout the pub and muted rolling news was being aired, but the Six Nations was advertised for later in the afternoon. I found the service to be friendly, but it wasn’t very busy during my visit. The George seems to be Croydon’s more popular Spoons and I also think that it has the edge.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit here anytime soon.
