Huge place down in Bromley South where you tend to find chain pubs that are more like bars. This is a prime example, recently changed to a Lloyds Bar, JD Wetherspoon's new sideline where they have added screens and music to a selection of their original venues. In this particular place we think it is a slight improvement. The place generally has a much better feel to it and the lighting is much less offensive, it used to be far too bright - which just didn't work in a place so big. It now seems slightly cosier, and not quite so open. The food is more or less the same as the old Wetherspoon, pretty average but cheap. The drinks are very cheap, as ever, with a good range of bitters and guest ales. However, despite the changes it still lacks atmosphere and remains to be the place to go in Bromley if you've just turned 18 and think you're going somewhere really cool.

Well it's a Wetherspoons, isnt it ?
For some reason the staff just dont like serving down the front end of the bar, they all gather round the coffee machine.
Best place to sit is up on the poop deck, here you can see all the people and talent going into IGF opposite the patio, or during the day, see all the trainees come in and out of the RBS Insurance building next door.
Beer is cheap and well kept, with a choice of about 6 guest ales, plus about 4 regulars.
Wine and cocktail jars seem to be the order of the day for Friday and Saturday night.
Bouncers on the door on the above nights, so you might have to take your passport if you look under 21, funny but they never stop me.
Outside seating both front and side.
Lots of different seating, a few cubicles for private chats, but most of it is open plan, tall tables for those people who prefer horizontal drinking, plenty of room at the bar for those how just injoy getting in the way of serious drinkers dying to get a beer at the bar.
Now most of the family brigade have migrated to the Greyhound at Bromley North, this place seems very quiet during the day but picks up in the evenings.
