Do not bother. Bar staff is condescending and patronising, which is particularly laughable given that they do not know what products are available for sale. Avoid.



A good place to go in Central London for cheap(er) drinks and good food.  The architecture and decor is interesting to look at and there is usually plenty of room to sit, unlike many London pubs.  The food is good and there is a large menu selection, so this is a good place to go if you are looking to not break the bank for dinner and a drink.

One of the more charming Wetherspoons pubs, this is a city gem just a short walk away from the Chancery Lane Tube. Given how cheap it is compared to the neighbouring pubs, it is well worth a visit (and surprisingly popular with the 'suits' - maybe the city bonuses this year haven't been so good after all!). Tastemaker Tip - if you are heading there at the weekend, it is probably best to check their online channels first, as it is often closed and hired out for private occasions (very popular for weddings, apparently....)

This is the local after work pub. It's not your typical Wetherspoons. With a grand building, that was actually featured in the Da Vinci Code, and it has lovely grand architecture.

The staff are very friendly, and the prices probably the cheapest in the area!!

This pub has a very large selection of draft beers ales, wines and spirits.

You shall not be disappointed!!

What is there left to say about the humble Spoons? Everyone’s been to one after all. Although not the fanciest, most stylish of venues, it is a pub, a good value pub at that. Admit it, Spoons aren’t not that bad.



For the intrepid Wetherspoon crawler among us, you’ll know that the one thing that distinguishes one Spoon from the next is it’s looks and decor. Some are stylish, sometimes reflecting the vibe of it’s vicinity. Others Spoons, no so much.



I’m happy to confirm that The Knight’s Templar is one of your more stylish Wetherspoon. Although, nowhere near as fancy or palatial as its brethren, The Crosse Keys in The City, The Knights Templar still charms with its old pillars, round tables and caricature paintings of past Law Lords and legal luminaries that hangs on the walls.



It also fits in quite nicely with the locale and quite pleasant to be inside. It’s not some grubby, run-down pub. But this strength is also its weakness too somewhat. It’s smack in the middle of legal London (Chancery Lane) and next door neighbours with the Right Honourable society Lincoln’s Inn Field and the Royal Courts of Justice. Expect barristers (perhaps still wearing their wigs?!)/solicitors/men in suits hogging most corners of the room. Might not be your scene with your trainers, jeans and t-shirt. It’s not the biggest of Wetherspoons either and I’d strongly suggest you avoid this one on a Friday night when everyone is on weekend mode and celebrating accordingly (even lawyers can be fun sometimes).



A good old fashioned Wetherspoon pub in a pretty pleasant setting. Go during the day for lunch. Go in the evening on any day. Just avoid Friday night.
