You normally know what to expect in branches of Wetherspoon's. But, this was one of the worst I have been in. I visited on Sunday morning. Despite the station over the road being closed for engineering works, there were already about a dozen people in at 10am. All were drinkers. I was the first to order a breakfast. I wish I hadn't. A burnt sausage, dried up beans and burnt bacon were on the plate, with hash browns missing. The rest was ok! Service at the bar was also poor. The solitary barmaid had no idea what a real cider was. I ordered a pint of Cotleigh Osprey. But, she soon advised that it had not been pulled through. So, I ended up with a pint of Hanlon's Stormstay. Again, I wish I hadn't bothered. Other ales were Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best, Sharp's Doom Bar, Stonehenge Great Bustard, Truman's Runner, Long Man Copper Hop & Oakham Citra. For a better 'spoon's experience, head to the Greyhound the other end of town instead.

My first visit here for well over a year and I'm pleased to report that on this visit the service was very swift, I was served by a pleasant young lady who seemed to having a good day, makes a big difference from previous visits when its taken ages to get served and then its by a surely bar person!

Still the clientele has remained unchanged and the whole pub has a slight air that any minute there might be a fight.

From the medium sized choice of ales I had a pint of Dorking Breweries Pilcrow Pale @ 4.0% which was a decent pint.

Only stayed for 1, this is a fine pub spoilt by the clientele and believe me it gets much worse in the evenings and at weekends, handy for the station but that's why it gets so busy.

Why dont the staff serve down the other end of the bar ?

They seems to be connected to the coffee machine and never venture far from it.

Even if they customers waiting they serve the customers in line like a queue, and make a point of avoiding eye contact with anyone but other staff.

Ladies toilet is a dump, tables need to be cleared more often,

Also the staff need to have words with the old fogies that stand at the bar and just get in the way of the beer pumps.

I visited twice last night and...the first time out of the 8 ales on tap only 4 were available and only one of these was not the normal 'Spoons ales.

On my return about 3 and a half hours later there were 7 beers on...much more impressive and exactly what you would expect from this establishment.

Still soulless on a Tuesday night (both times) but at least the staff were on the ball.

Since this place opened I have probably used it at least once every 2 months…and each time I vow not to return unless I’m blinking desperate….well I must be desperate as I keep returning when I’m in Bromley!

The choice of ales is always good and I’ve never had a bad pint.

Service can be very slow sometimes, even when it’s not a Friday or Saturday night, I suppose serving food is more important than the paying alcohol drinkers that keep pubs afloat.

Nearly always packed to the rafters at weekends, normally several under age looking drinkers. Occasionally there’s also trouble hence why the pub employs door staff.
