Catford Spoons is a good wetherspoons. Much better then Lewisham spoons. Lewisham spoons is depressing but Catford spoons is a cheerful place. I go in depressed and come out with a smile on my face. Beer is descent,guinness is descent as well.

We had a bit of beef in there in June but its all blown over now and we are enjoying supping in there now. It has WiFi it doesn't obviously have sky TV but if you want to watch the match go to the goose if you want some food and a few pints go to spoons.

The toilets are the best toilets in SE6 FACT.

Set on the main road through Catford, once a key coaching thoroughfare between London and Rye in Kent – hence the name – this is a pretty standard shop conversion-style Wetherspoons pub of the sort you are spoilt for choice with across South London. The rather charmless interior comprises a rectangular room, carpeted for the most part, but with a rather pointless quarry stone floored section in the rear right corner. The servery runs down the left hand wall and has a vaguely art-deco style counter and a rather bland bar back. Lots of standard tables and chairs fill the majority of the room, with the odd high table or drinking ledge dotted around the perimeter, each supplemented with high stools. Two sets of pillars run through the pub, breaking sight lines to a degree, although a padded bench seating area in the rear right corner offers little in the way of privacy thanks to some angled mirrors suspended above the benches, which allow punters to covertly watch whoever is sat there from above. The room extends a little to the rear, past the end of the bar, where you can find a couple more tables that are ideal should you wish to be seated outside the toilets. The room has been decorated with a lot of plain mirrors, ‘Spoons info boards and a useful ale board which lists what is available and what beers will be coming soon. A TV screen next to the bar was showing muted coverage of the afternoon’s Formula One Grand Prix.
I counted four guest ales and three ‘Spoons regulars on the hand pump, plus a real cider and two unclipped pumps. I tried a pint of Banks’ Black Diamond, which was pretty good and served by one of the efficient and friendly bar team.
I couldn’t really muster a lot of enthusiasm for this place and felt it was one in a long line of drab South London Wetherspoons which become difficult to differentiate from one another. The beer and service were the two big bonuses, but for decent atmosphere and interesting interior, you’re better off looking elsewhere.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The London & Rye (JD Wetherspoon)

Unexceptional 'spoons, with a larger-than-you-might-expect interior featuring standard furniture / decor but the low ceiling above the majority of the rectangular bar area gives a slightly oppressive feel (unless you get one of the tables by the front windows). Decent-sized patio seating area at the front, overlooking the modest green spaces of Rushey Green. Just five of ten handpumps operational (with one reversed clip and four annoyingly interesting 'available soon's), with the Westerham single hop Palisade (£2.35) being the pick of a fairly meagre bunch.
