Reviewed 23rd January 2019:

I came here once before in the easter of 2004; it opened in 2001. Then it was very noisy with a flagstone floor as I recall which if correct has now been carpeted which greatly reduces noise. Otherwise, it's as described below with the obligatory games machines confined to the entrance vestibule.
Otherwise it is a mentioned, rather grand by 'spoons standards.
On our visit it was moderately busy but many of the tables were cluttered with empty glasses to complement the sauce bottles. Food comprises the usual fayre but despite the relatively modest number of customers, we were told that our order would take an hour to arrive; we decided not to eat. Indeed 'freshly-made' pizze were unavailable due to the pub having run out of bases, so not 'freshly-made' then.
Fifteen pumps on offer with around 12 in operation with options from the likes of Wimbledon brewery and Truman's Firestarter at an astonishing £3.19 a pint and good if a little cold. Doom Bar and GK IPA were available if so desired.
This isn't a bad place for a cheap pint of decent ale and is about the closest thing you'll get to a pub in the Canary Wharf development, but there's no real reason to come all the way out here unless you're combining it with a trip to the neighbouring Museum of London Docklands.

Reviewed 23rd January 2020:

A return after a second annual visit to the Festival of Lights and unsurprisingly nothing has changed, except that this time tables were cleared promptly and food, in the form of a chicken tikka masala for my friend, arrived in probably under 10 minutes.
Ales tried: Harviestoun's Haggis Hunter and Watney's Young Harvey both at £3.39 a pint and really rather bland. An identically priced pint of Truman's Runner was on poor form.
The six-day midnight licence is most welcome and this is still one of the more 'upmarket' 'spoons, so not a dominatrix in sight (oink, oink).

A reasonable Wetherspoons conversion of a former dockyard admin building situated on the edge of the Canary Wharf business district. The front entrance has a portico to which you arrive having walked through a large outside seating area. Inside, the main room is a long rectangle with arched and oriel windows on the far end wall, the bar running along one side. Seating directly in front of the bar area is exclusively at high tables with stools, presumably to maximise room. A corridor to one side has three separate small rooms off it, two of which were privately booked at the time of my visit. It was a busy spot, even though my visit was on a Saturday, I presume due to the proximity of the Docklands branch of the Museum of London.
Various festival beers were on as well as the JDW usual suspects, prices marked being higher than usual for a JDW.
I was served (eventually) by a remarkably disinterested barman with hardly a word being exchanged.
An ok building and the obvious spot to go to for a pre or post museum visit refreshment.

As Wetherspoons go I quite liked this one. Granted it was 4.30PM on a Wednesday so we got in before the evening after work rush from the glass towers close by. An impressive dockland building now put to good extended use as a pub I liked the multi area layout of this one either side of the main corridor, and as mentioned the toilets are indeed very impressive. And as my visit was also complemented by a fine pint of ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout this was all in all one of the more enjoyable ‘spoons visits.
