We've had our eye on this particular Wetherspoons of late, and are pleased to report that on two separate visits it has bucked the general downward trend of the franchise in recent years (a trend which is well-documented elsewhere on fancyapint?). There's a comfortable area with settees at the front, with Sky Sports for those inclined, but we have found that this does not intrude on the rest of the establishment. It's never been anything other than quite serene on our recent visits (although admittedly, this may change on a Friday or Saturday night). There are plenty of tables in side recesses, as is often the case with Wetherspoons, though these tend to be more spacious and comfortable than your average. The food service, especially, was prompt and polite, and the guest ales on offer particularly good on our latest visit - three or four very pleasant Northern bitters, none of which we had heard of before. This is certainly one of the better Wetherspoons in South London, and in an area not brimming with good places, worth dropping into if you are passing through SE20.
