A new build 'spoons ,the interior does at least wind around and the low ceiling gives a modicom of character.You will need to push around to the semi circular glass glad seating area if you want Thames views,and this was packed with the unfit,infirm and decrepit in a scene that could easily be described as God's Waiting Room.The rest of the interior had mainly high tables and drinking shelves,while the bar was in a dark corner.The ale selection was the regular horror show of Doom Bar,GK IPA and Abbott and London Pride while guests were the ever awful Hobgoblin Gold and Bombardier together with Long Man Copper Hop,Jennings Snecklifter and Burton Bridge Draught Burton Ale (didn't taste of much).
This pub just reminds me how poor some Wetherspoons can be,unexciting guest ales,a depressing vibe and although it maybe cheap,it's cheap for a very good reason .Avoid.

This is one of Wetherspoons newer London offerings having opened in 2010. Generally speaking it's a lot different to the usual Spoons although the bar area seemed to have the usual daytime Spoons crowd. The pub is on the ground floor of a block of trendy riverside apartments and was a cocktail bar and eatery before Spoons moved in. I could see nothing to stop you having a drink away from the bar area. There were 8 pumps, two with GK IPA, two ciders, Doombar and three ales still going from the Festival. These were being sold off at £1.99 so I don't know what the normal price would be. The Mordue Oatmeal Stout I tried was in good condition.

The Rocket is a modern Wetherspoons opened in April 2010 and the main attraction is excellent uninterrupted views of the River Thames from both the large internal light and airy dining area section or the outside tables by the waterside.
We chose to utilise it when attending a concert at the nearby Fulham Palace and needed somewhere for a group to meet up for reasonably priced early evening scoff before having to move off fairly sharpish and in this respect it was a reliable option in that we could book a table and the usual Wetherspoons plastic food menu was promptly served.
If this was Wetherspoons attempt to go upmarket, then they seem to have shelved that idea as the table service has disappeared and you have to go and queue up at the small (by ‘spoons standards) bar area to order. This is not reflected in the prices however as these remain higher than the normal high street ‘spoons. However to put it into perspective, this still means it is a cheap option compared to other local options.
Also still disappointing on the beer front as the 8 pumps mainly had the standard house Ale options on and there was only one guest ale that I could see. However, on a fine summers evening like last Friday the outdoor sections to the left and front of the pub at least give a decent option for an alfresco pint to the small internal drink only sections.
Would I bother to come back just for a pint ?. Probably not as there a plenty of good waterside option in this area. Would I utilise it again for reasonable priced eats when in the area again. Probably.
