I made a return visit to the William Morris yesterday morning for a breakfast and a pint. There were a number of Welsh rugby fans in, amidst a typical Wetherspoon's morning crowd. Service was reasonably quick, despite only one barman. The choice was reasonable - Greene King Abbot, Sharp's Doom Bar, Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter, Fuller's London Pride, Shepherd Neame Bishop's Finger, Wimbledon Pitbull, Yeovil Posh IPA, Morland Old Speckled Hen & Kirkstall Dissolution. There was no real cider. It's a bit dark inside. But my visit fulfilled a purpose.

The service in here is never great; but last Sunday, it was awful...I waited 5 minutes, whilst the ignorant male barstaff continuously served the first person in front of them to rock up. No sense of a 'queue' was noticed by them, whatsoever. I made my moan & left for The Plough & Harrow, which is marginally better. Also, the toilets are still the disgrace that they've always been; not that I need them on this occasion, being drinkless!

Popped in here for a pint or two of the 'Spoons festival beers before a gig at the good old Hammy Odeon. The beers were pretty well looked after, but served in a shocking fashion by the staff, who treated pulling pints as a race to get the glass filled in record time. All that resulted was a beer with a massive head and me asking them to top it up. Other customers seemed to accept this as the norm. Come on people - a British pint is 95% liquid and 5% head. That is there to protect us from this kind thing. You're losing money every time!!

Massive beer warehouse, packed before a gig, but cheap and service was efficient enough

This pub carries mixed sentiments for me however, recent visits have left me disappointed.

Used to quite like going here when I was bit younger for the cheap drink. This is even the place where I first got with my other half and after nearly 6 years and 2 kids we are still together (just about). This is perhaps why I have persisted with this place due to having fond memories however, nothing is pursuading me to continue using the gaff.

Firstly, I only really tend to visit this place now on a saturday afternoon before a Fulham game as I find it convenient being right outside the station. I know that there are better places to go for a pre-match drink however, when you are on a bit of a shoestring like myself I opt for the cost-effective option . However, the last couple of times I have been in they always seem to have the same very uninspiring range of ales. I even went in a few weeks apart and I am sure that the guest ales were exactly the same as my previous visit. Now I dont mind sometimes sacrificing a good atmosphere to drink in a spoons however if they cannot even get their ales right then there is not really anything to attract me in there.

Secondly, when I went there in the evening just before Christmas I noticed some old soak being evicted very roughly from the pub by the bouncers even knocking into me in the process causing my mate to spill a bit of his beer on me. Now don't get me wrong, this bloke did look like an exceptionally obnoxious old git but the truth is is that the bouncer could have probably farted next to him and blown him over so was the rough tactics really necessary. I also noticed a lot of signs warning of a spate of bag thefts recently which does not lend a nice undercurrent to the place.

Finally, I have to agree with a lot of other poster in regards to the toilets here. Now I only ever empty my bladder in pubs but I feel sorry for anyone who is caught short here as these are quite possibly one of the most disgusing pub toilets I have seen and trust me when I say that I have been to some shit pits.

Overall, I wouldn't say to anyone to not drink here as even though my review has been fairly scathing, it is generally an OK place. Just don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed! ! !
