Another gigantic Wetherspoon conversion, this one of a monumental banking hall. And whilst this one doesn't have the aesthetic charm of some nearby competitors, this place impresses with it's Stalinist proportions (note too the giant TV screen, in accordance with the grandiose scale of the pub). There's the usual Wetherspoon range of drink and food on offer at the usual unbeatable Wetherspoon prices, which probably explains the advanced state of inebriation of the clientele when we arrived late one evening here - apparently we're just not used to cheap drink in the City. Lunchtimes it can get pretty busy - there's that familiar hum of chat you get in expansive, high-ceilinged conversions of this type - but the bar is usually well-staffed, meaning the inordinate waiting times afflicting certain other Wetherspoon pubs aren't so much of a problem here. With Wetherspoon excellent (some might say challenging) range of beers it's a pretty reasonable pub for the area (though we've never seen this one when there's been a game on the big screen). In fact, they now have an electronic screen above the bar, somewhat in the style of an airport departure board, advertising the real ales currently on tap.

I have not been recently to this pub but I very much doubt they are "dog friendly" as stated above as Wetherspoon's have a blanket no dogs policy (except guide dogs etc). The pub is a big room with lots of what you expect from a 'spoons. Cheap drinks, lots of choice and usually edible simple food.

If you get a chance to visit, saturday is the day. Very quiet due to its location, you get the chance to browse the 20 (when I went recently) real ales on offer here. Shuts at 7pm on saturdays, but that leaves more than enough time to sample the ales.
