Whatever happened to 11 pints? Did he turn into randolf 7 or croydon peer or even wealdman? Lets await the next false account to defend the rest!

Today Wednesday 29th June I got the train to Slough and when I got there I went to the Moon and Spoon and I went to the bar and I ordered a chicken burger and chips and a pint of Strongbow for a change and I went and sat at table 12 and I had my lunch and watched all the drunk old men who sit in the pub all day and I like the Moon and Spoon as it is a very big pub with lots of tables to choose from and I will return next time I go to the Moon and Spoon

Kales, why lie on a pub/beer website - and refuse to discuss either. Just other posters, all of whom you have issues with. A spelling course might help - as well as a hobby, job or visit to the pub!

No yours was quite polite saying how you had issues in life and wanted my number so you could tell me the real reason your defending a numpty head. Oh and thank you I am employed and very well in fact but hey ho maybe your trying to explain the lifestyle you lead.

Mine was the abusive one - to a sad unemployed chap, who has no interest in pubs or beer. Just a habit of boring and insulting posters.
wealdman - 17 Dec 2015 18:10
Ive just had a private message from wealdman and one from paul/arsenal fan 36. One quite nice and one slightly abusive, a sort of good cop bad cop situation maybe? Anyway suspicions have been raised and I'm going to have a guess this is his articulate brother or the same person that has a split personality.

Yippee arsenal fan36 is back with a new name and a tougher attitude can't wait to read his next review.

I hadn't been in this pub for a while but it has certainly improved as the dodgy clientele are no more, the staff are excellent and the usual good beer selection. Now that I am back in Slough, I might make this my local.

My 2nd stop on my way to Maidenhead and another Wetherspoon’s.

This large and busy ‘Spoons at the end / start of the High Street is just a short walk from the station.

This is first time I've ever been to Slough for a drink, with the pub being in the 2014 GBG it was worth of a stop.

Eclectic clientele , fairly busy during visit with most punters drinking, a lot of the tables on the raised level that would normally be for diners were empty.

2 bar staff serving but no problem or wait to get a beer.

12 pumps offering 6 different beers, my selection was decent and being a ‘Spoons it was good value.

Overall a decent and friendly pub that I shall put on my pub radar if I’m passing through Slough again.

When you go into a 'Spoons you kinda know what you're going to get - a large pub with many seats, vast open spaces inbetween and quite a few nooks and crannies. A large range of beers, many of which you've never heard off. In the daytime it will be fine, at night possibly a little more boisterous. The staff will do their best.

And The Moon And Spoon conforms admirably to the pattern. We stopped here at the end of a long wet walk for a pre - First Great Western breather as we knew what we'd get, and we got it.

People moan about Wetherspoons but when I was young if you saw this many real ales in one place you were either at a beer festival or were having a wonderful dream. I say well done to them, after all, they could just sell lager and froth.

Heh look this is Slough.Nowadays noone travels to Slough for a night out.But if you are unfortunate to find yourself in Slough for a night out,then this pub is about as good as it gets.Beer is cheap and generally ok.It never gets packed as it once did.It's ok though, but not a pub about which you'd rave.

Large Wetherspoons pub at the end of Slough High Street (the opposite end to the Rose & Crown). Paid two visits this week & found both the Landlord & Staff very helpful and friendly. The beers sampled were all well kept and there was a good selection available. There were several beers still waiting to come on but the clips were marked as such.

Busy pub with all walks of life in here. Was warned off one of the beers (and they were still selling it) as it tasted of vinegar. The beer range looked impressive but half of them had 'coming soon'notifications. The beer we had was Ok if a little hazy, however the last 50 mls had a thick haze plus little bits floating around - I left it. The food came within 10 minutes and was cheap filling and wholesome. If only they could get their act together on the beer front....

Not a bad pub although there are a few local characters who might put some people off. Bar staff has improved greatly since I first went in there.The beer is well kept and being Wetherspoons reasonably priced.

Unfortuniantly the Moon and Spoon is the best you are going to get if you want a good choice of adult drinks in a non-music setting.

Beer and burgers are good, and worth getting rather than BK Macdonalds, or the local dodgy kebab. Its a bit drab inside, and full of old alcoholic men, but they are harmless. The smoke has cleared up as well due to a stricter policy.

My main problem with the pub is the staff, which walk around depressed and a bit blunt when spoken to.

On nights other than fri/sat quite quiet. It's a bit impersonal and in the comfy seats feels like sitting in a "world of leather" showroom, but who cases with Guiness at less than 1.50 a pint on a Monday night. A good place to go if your on a tight budget and want to drink a bit, or a place to meet friends before going on somwhere else.

Nice and cheap food and good beer, full of Slough characters and scallywags.

Typical moons pub with cheap beer and cheap (substandard food) - Drinks are fine but the staff are some of the worst and rudest i have ever come across anywhere!!!

cheap food and good drink that all it maters

Another 'Moon' pub - but surrounded as it is with the other pubs in Slough, it's not too bad. Always has the 'real Ale' thing going, good cheap food, plenty of seating, and a family area at the back.
The few things going against it, is the usual Slough clientele, a rough but usually quiet lot - and the lack of staff behind the bar on busy evenings - you can take an age to get served.
I'm a regular visitor by the fact of being within walking distance, and the good real ales on offer, esp. when they have a festival going.
