Rex Rattus left this review about The Barrel Vault (JD Wetherspoon)

I guess that if we had visited at a more sensible time, rather than at around 6.00 PM on a Wednesday evening, it would have seemed a bit more welcoming. But in the rush hour it was heaving; no seats to be had which was a shame as we were looking for a bite to eat; a scrum at the bar; and noisy as hell. Even ignoring all that, it struck me as a characterless drinking barn. At another time it would serve the usual 'spoons purpose, in providing both cheap food and beer. But there was a good selection of ales, with guest ales at £1.39 a pint, and in good condition.

I'll probably end up in here again sometime, probably for a late morning brunch before heading off to visit other pubs.

A new Spoons in Kings Cross – huzzah! It’s part of the new St Pancras complex and the open-plan space in which it’s sited isn’t particularly memorable, rather utilitarian in all but the floor-to-ceiling plate glass windows make for good people watching. One item of note is that there are loads of bulbs and lamps – almost hundreds it seemed – which made it feel like the lighting department at John Lewis. Loads of guest ales here, I think I counted six. I went for the Oakham Citra (NBSS 3.5) and Twickenham Red (3) served by a barman who had a Mancunian accent and appeared to be pretty spaced-out, struggling to recall basic details of my order seconds after having been told (Bez's lovechild?). The ale range and quality makes this one worth a look if you are in the area or waiting for a train. 6.5

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Barrel Vault (JD Wetherspoon)

First revisit since opening week, and things seem to have settled down well with enough staff behind the bar and the tables being promptly cleared. They have done a reasonable job of decorating an unpromising space in the shopping area under the Southeastern platforms, and the natural light from the windows along the road frontage certainly helps. There is also a row of high pavement tables along this edge to supplement the interior furniture. As before, there was an excellent selection of real ales available from the two banks of six handpumps; mostly festival beers such as the Kodiak American Brown Ale from Conwy (except, when poured, it clearly wasn't, given the colour, but I didn't feel like making an issue of it since whatever it was turned out to be a decent hoppy pale ale anyway... £3.49).
