user reviews of the Sir John Hawkshaw, Cannon Street

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I've been meaning to try this branch of Wetherspoon's in Cannon Street station for quite some time. I finally got to visit it during the busy Thursday commute out of the city. It's a very small place, for a 'spoon's. The bar is directly in front of you as you enter. But, it appears that at busy times, an orderly queue appears between the bar and the door. Fuller's London Pride & Greene King IPA were the ales you generally find in this chain. But, there were also 3 guests - Flack Manor Flack Catcher, Saltaire Cascade & Banks & Taylor SOS. An added bonus was Mr Whitehead's Toffee Apple Cider in the fridge. As was expected, it was very busy on this early weekday visit. Don't expect to find toilets in the premises. You have to fight your way across the station concourse to the public toilets on the other side of the platforms and downstairs, if you want to spend a penny. They are free, at least. Not a bad option if you're catching a train. But, if you've got slightly more time, I would recommend the Pelt Trader just around the corner instead.

Finished the evening here recently after a crawl of the surrounding areas pubs.

Several ales on the hand pumps but I ignored these to go straight for a can of Sixpoint’s Resin at a whopping 9.5%, a monster in a can!

Just under half full at 10pm on a Thursday night.

Pleasant bar staff, clean tables and no problem getting served….just perfect and of course less than a minute away from the platform that may train was on.

Been in a few times, whilst waiting for trains, and is sometimes good for a nice quiet drink. However, despite it being a non music pub, the staff in the kitchen, which opens onto one part of the pub, are forever blasting out awful music from their tinny MP3 players, which puts me right off. One night staff were singing along, it was like being in a fucking Kareoke bar!

A 10.30pm visit on a Wednesday night for a night cap marked my first ever visit to this station platform Wetherspoon’s.

A decent enough selection of ales with a couple of kegs offerings also. My pint of Stone’s Levitation Ale was good but was slightly soured by the surly service.

Not many people here during my visit but that’s because of the time, I guess at 5.30pm on a weekday the place is heaving.

No toilets here so you have to use the ones across the other side of the platform, a bit of walk if you have a session here and have a weak bladder!

Neatly decorated and worth a visit I just hope the service isn’t always that surly!
