Was here a while back, got stuck into a few pints of Devils Backbone which was a nice drop.

Gone to the bogs for a piss and proper fired one out, fella next ta me says "thats the loudest piss ive ever heard''. Big fart at the end, was not sure if fella was a gay. I'm not, you should hear my loud piss!

Standard Spoons. Decent beer good service. Nothing remarkable but solid and does what it says on the JDW tin. Not quite sure it's what George Orwell had in mind btw.

One of the better Spoons I have been in, Manager chatted about the ales and actually seemed to know what he was talking about!

The toilets have recently had a bit of a refurb, which is a great improvement. Tables have been put along the side wall which fold down on Friday evenings when the pub gets very busy. If you want wifi then you ought to sit in the front two-thirds of the pub as it gets very flaky after that. The staff are very good, very quick. For some reason they are all a bit gothy but there's nothing wrong with that, Goths are usually pretty clever people. It is pretty small - but there is lots of seating. In a way it's a good old Irish/Jamaican pub like there used to be 1000s of in South London 20 years ago, and that's a good thing, for me.
I should say that I almost always go there in the hours of noon to six (not all at once!), so I don't really know what it is like after about 8pm.
Being a Wetherspoon's the food is "standard", but it is normally pretty quick, and hot.
BTW, you couldn't do much better for transport! Bus stops are right outside the door. The Tube is about 30 metres away and the Railway about 100m away; you could be at Victoria in 20 minutes from your seat!

A small Spoons right next door to Balham station. Popped in for a quick pint tonight. The Arundel Old was excellent.

Didnt experience any of the staffing issues mentioned previously. Both staff serving were attentive and I only waited a couple of minutes to be served.
