I liked this pub. It offered many real ales including: Ruddles Best Bitter, Fullers London Pride and By the Horns Brewery’s Diamond Geezer. They all were enjoyable and at a reasonable price, especially important for this high-priced area called Horselydown. (By the bye, pop down the road to see the statue of Jacob the dray horse.) At the time we visited, service was pleasant enough but a bit slow: they could probably do with another servant better to meet demand from drinkers and eaters. The interior layout has some six or eight person tables partially screened away from the mêlée of other customers, which slight separation assists a good natter. Do allow sufficient time to reach the (well-kept) loos as it is quite a trek downstairs (if you are not disabled). I should complain about a rather unpleasant klaxon that sounds from time to time – a win on the fruit machines or a fire alarm? All in all, well worth a visit.

Popped in here one Saturday lunchtime. Didn't stay as there weren't many real ales on and few staff and it was fairly crowded (usual Spoons criticism).

But it seemed OK, better than average JDW and I would go again.

Headed here from the Liberty Bounds, at Tower Hill. Totally contrasting 'Spoons with one packed and feels pretty opulent inside, this one more down to earth, less busy and a bit cheaper.
Friendly, efficient staff, decent selection of ale (top beer I had from By The Horns) and cheap food to soak up the post-football ale.

Solid Spoon in a handy location. It's the location that makes this place. Otherwise it's fairly standard. I quite like it.

I'm no fan of McSpoons, but really; cheapskates complaining of ale at 2.50 a pint? No wonder proper community pubs are closing. In a tied house the landlord would be making pittance per pint at these prices, nowhere near enough to cover his overheads.
