Paid my first visit to this branch of Wetherspoons yesterday morning for a breakfast and a pint. As others have said, this is one of the more traditional 'spoons and presumably one of the older ones. Service was efficient and friendly. Not all ales clipped were on. Those that appeared to be on were Sambrook's Battersea Rise, Sharps Doom Bar, Greene King Abbot & IPA, Dartmoor Jail Ale & Caledonian First Dawn. The cider was Old Rosie. Plastic glasses were in use as there was a game at Wembley. Easily the best pub in the area.

Standard older member of the London Spoons stock and a solid pre-Wembley boozer, being only one stop up an often surprisingly efficient Jubilee line on matchday (yes, more efficient than the Met line). In the Good Beer Guide this year for the first time in over 20 years.

I was here between about 90 and 60 minutes before kick-off and although plastic glasses were in use and there were a fair few other football fans, anyone that's experienced the Torch will find this a dream.

First visit to this 'spoons while in the area for a bank holiday football match at nearby Silver Jubilee Park.

A few of my pals were already here when I arrived around 12.30pm and they made most of the numbers up, maybe as it was carnival time this effected the normal clientele as ‘spoon’s are never normally this empty let alone on bank holiday’s.

10 hand pumps with a decent & varied selection of ales, I went through pints of the following Cronx Kotchin @ 3.9% (not a great pint and possibly going bad), Cerveceria Fort Barcelona Barcelona Session Ale @ 5.0% (very good) and Hop Stuff ‘s APA (Arsenal Pale Ale) @ 3.8% which was the best pint of the 3.

2 barman on and they struggled to cope even if wasn’t overly busy, one of the chaps was considerably slower than the other so this wound a few people up.
Older style ‘spoons, but it’s well kept and also has a nice garden to the rear, even though I didn’t venture out there.

Will probably only ever return if I’m there for a football game or visiting Wembley as it’s only 1 stop away on the Jubilee line.

Well. Beer festival. And good it was. Normally I steer clear of pubs with high chairs stacked in the corner. However, short-fat dick persuaded me to go in (that's nor his real name. its his biomass). I had my fill of some 30 different ales over a 10=day period, all in tip top condition at 1.99 a pint. And, before you ask, no... I don't work there.

This is a pub for the lost and the lonely. Old men dreaming of the days when they where strong and handsome; old men dreaming of the beautiful women they used to shag. Ah me. AND, while we were lost in reminisce, while we were focused on the"jolly good value", the bastards put up the price up of everything else by 10p... I mean EVERYTHING else, while we were so distracted, bubbling on about the "cheap" beer, every other drink went up by 10p! See where they're coming from, eh?

Mind you, I know of no other pub in the land that shows Russia Today on a big screen. And it is as multi-cultural as befits NW London.

More power to their elbow.

I have now moved to Kingsbury and this is my local. Ideal for me working shifts as it opens until midnight.

Took my Dad in several times when he stayed nearby and he liked it, which is good enough for me.

Good staff, good ale and the food always up to scratch. Better than many Spoons and a good vibrant mix of customers.

Getting thirsty just typing!

Decided to pop in after going to Aldi over the road. Used to use this pub years ago before Wembley when living in the north.

Really impressed. Ale excellent. Staff polite and quick despite it being very busy with staff Christmas parties.

It was warm and comfy. I'll certainly give it another go.

I tend to approach Wetherspoons out in the NW London suburbs with a bit of caution but needn't have worried here - this is well above-average for the chain. I counted twelve handpumps and, at least during the 'Spoons beer festival, each one appeared to be supplying a different ale or cider. As I was here on a Sunday morning, though, I stuck to a softie, so can't comment on beer quality. But this looked a nice enough place.

Saturday evening, busy pub, beer well kept, staff very polite, food order dealt with promptly. Food hot and freshly cooked looking tasted good. Table cleared and cleaned as soon as we had finished. Some noisy customers but generally pleasant atmosphere with most people enjoying their evening out. Dont like the big TV's but couldn't hear them so minor problem only..

It's a Wetherspoons - what you see is what you get. Mixed crowd, dirty tables, but good cheap ales.

A few too many blokes in here which can be difficult if you're a girl out with gal pals but the staff are friendly enough and the prices are reasonable too!

The perfect local. Staff are superb, great with names and remembering drinks and always ready to have a laugh with the customers. Great mix of customers too. Hardly ever any trouble (unlike at Tonky Gorilla!!) And if you've never been there when there's an event on at Wembley pop down 'cos the atmosphere is amazing!

noisy indian blokes makes a change from the noisy white blokes you hear in most pubs

The couple of times I've been in there it was full of the aforementioned noisy Indian blokes as well as a few pond life's who looked like they'd fight their own mother if she looked at them the wrong way. Not a pleasant experience.

And, Edwina, you didn't mention, good crowd usually, except for the occasionally noisy Indian blokes!
