A trip to Cheshunt for football and after walking past the 3 pubs from the station....none of them looked very inviting I arrived at this 'spoons.

Uncomplmentary reviews had me in no fear of what this pub was like. Well my opinion is that it's not too bad. It's an old fashioned 'spoons that feels like an estate pub with clientele to match!

Drinkers at the front of pub where the tele's are located with eaters to the rear. One note on the food...the large hot dogs looked bloody good.

10 hand pumps on the bar, 2 turned around the other 8 had 2x Ruddles, 2x Abbot Ale, 2x Ciders, Brains SA and my choice of which was Long Man Brewery American Pale Ale @ 4.8%. My pint was alright, not brilliantly kept and maybe it was on the way out as after my pint they turned the clip around!

I have been in worse 'spoons, at least this one feels safe. The locals are seem to be honest and just up for a few beers and a chat.

If I ever return to Cheshunt I will visit again.

No improvement at this very poor Wetherspoons. The management seem oblivious to the group who sit near the door every day and who are allowed to swear constantly. The pub itself is rundown and in bad need of some TLC. As for the beers, on a visit on Tuesday most real ale pumps where turned around. It did not seem to matter as most customers were drinking Lager or John Smiths!

A fab breakfast for under �3, you can't complain about that! But the pub is pretty run down and in need of a complete overhaul. It's sticky and smelly. However, the staff are friendly and attentive.

To be honest it is one of the worse Wetherspoons I have actually been to and I have been to some bad ones, however in there I felt more comfortable. If you enjoy a pub crawl then it's right down your alley. Cheap food and cheap tasting alcohol equals the cheap taste and the even cheaper people that go there. The amount of people that surround the place is as uninviting as possible. Passing the smog of smoke I wasn't to impressed, there used to be proper ales. Now three pumps have been devoted to Greene King IPA, served also at poor quality. Being a Bar manager myself I would cut my losses. The presentation is unappealing as the staff's language to the customers. The only reason I see the only upside is the cheaply priced alcohol, and as I mentioned above I won't be returning to the King James very soon unless I came previously intoxicated.

I won't even begin to described the state of the toilets, but I must tell you there are certain "lines" I won't be crossing.

Good deals on drink think they do a jug of cocktail for �5.00 - good way to get drunk. More of a youngesters pub , also serves quite nice food !
