A modern station bar alongside the platforms, rather small for a Spoon's but with a bright feel despite being immersed in the station. The main room contains the bar, while in a side area with the kitchen servery you can see the barrels racked up in a glass cellar area. There is also a tabled 'outdoor' area in front on the station concourse, handy for a last minute dash to your train. At time of visit they were in the midst of a London beer festival, so the pumps carried a fair range of local brews plus a cider, with none of the usual stuff apart from Pride. I suspect it may be heaving in the evening rush hour, but pleasant when quiet, Certainly much better than you average station buffet.

Not a bad spoons in the station and well described below. Quiet on my early morning visit. The service was friendly and the beer was good. Well worth a visit if you are waiting for a train.

Named after the engineer who built the Cannon Street railway, this is a relatively new Wetherspoons handily located on the Cannon Street station concourse. There is a small seating area on the concourse itself, although I couldn't really see much of an advantage to sitting here other than perhaps slightly improved people watching prospects. Instead, I entered into a large rectangular room with the copper topped servery along the back wall. The usual selection of Wetherspoons seating was available, including tables and chairs for diners, high tables and stools opposite the bar, a few banquette booths to the side and a drinking ledge under the large front windows. The pub has a fairly uninteresting interior of the sort that characterises the chain's airport bars, with minimal decor, a neutral colour scheme and a few TV screens and departure boards. To the right there is a small overspill room that felt a lot cosier and more pub-like than the main bar area. There was a good deal of additional seating in here, plus a nice display cabinet full of beer related bits. Annoyingly, there are no toilets in the pub, so you have to traipse over to the other side of the station to use the facilities there instead.
There are six handpulls which had a 50/50 split between Spoons regulars and guest ales. I forget what I opted for, but it was a good, light, hoppy ale that was refreshing on a warm evening and in good shape. The staff were pretty dismissive and as with most bars with such transient customer bases, the service was functional but in no way warm or engaging.
It's nice to see Wetherspoons getting into more of London's stations, as they make a nice alternative to the overpriced Fullers pubs that had been predominating in recent years. Whilst this place is by no means a destination pub, it is most certainly a welcome addition for commuters and will make the inevitable cancelled and delayed trains seem a whole lot easier to bear.
