It's funny you don't rate the one in TELFORD that was one of the better ones I've visited. As for the best still have yet to visit an outstanding one.

Worst one for me is the Moon Under Water in MK Theatre District. We have 4 here, the two better ones are near the station.

Edit - I forgot the one in Barking which has 'characters'. Unsure

Maybe I've been to all the wrong Weatherspoons but the majority seem to be populated by life's dropouts, chavs and scumbags. Add to that they're normally a mess, the tables & bar are soaked in beer and the service ordinary. One of the better ones I've been to is the Met Bar in Baker St. which is only let down by the dreadful service. As for the food....Pirate

Totally agree on all those points, surprisingly I have only been to the Telford pub on one occasion as I always go to Wellington which is where the New Bucks Head ground is located, there was talk of having a JDW there but it came to nothing unfortunately.
I have ticked all the MK ones and you are quite right about the theatre district one, on my visit they only had one ale and all plastic glasses Crazy the one near the station is very good.
Barking Laugh enough said!
There are outstanding ones! Most people seem to agree on Colchester Tongue

Agreed there are some dodgy ones but overall I never have cause to complain, pick one from my top 10 and compare with the ones you've visited Angelic

A pen picture for the William Morris in Cowley, the only other pub in the area The Nelson / The Nelly (not a Wetherspoons pub) has been called jokingly "The Jockey" by many in the area.

Colchester has such a fine array of excellent GBG pubs I've never felt the need to visit the 'spoons there. I guess it would have to be good, though, given the competition in the town.

Oh dear! In an effort to complete the Greater London Wetherspoons I made the mistake of venturing into BRIXTON today Shocked now I am a big fan of JDWs but The Beehive is an insult to the name! A word of warning to everyone if you want to tick this pub, order a half of something safe ie John Smith's and get out as quick as you can! Run for your life and never look back Pirate

Would you be so kind as to provide more detail as to why one should "run for their life" please?

This is not meant to sound as it reads. I'm genuinely interested in why you felt so threatened.

Well, where do I start Unsure first off it is only a small pub and does not offer the full food menu. Also despite the 3 guest ales on offer from Weltons Brewery the barman didn't seem to know what ale was! I chose the Empire Stout but I watched in horror as a lager glass full of froth was poured then a second attempt with another lager glass was made this time half liquid half froth! The barman then disappeared to the kitchen? Bemused he returned and had a third try with a beer glass! And then used his comb which I presume he had just washed in the kitchen, to comb off the froth from the other two glasses before pouring into one and presenting this to me! Surprisingly the end result was drinkable! But I am certain it was not the stout, more likely one of the other beers with the wrong clip on the pump Crazy
I played safe with the food and had the fish and chips, although nobody was eating it took 20mins to arrive but once again was surprisingly OK hence I award 3 out of ten for this establishment! Eltham is safe at the bottom with 2!
However, the broken, well worn tables, the strange looks from locals when eating, the heated discussions taking place and general ambience of the place was very uncomfortable, and I dared not even venture to the toilets! Worryingly all these experiences are echoed in the reviews posted on the beer in the evening website, take a look as they are a good read and sum it up perfectly!
I wanted to see if Brixton in general was also as bad as its reputation, and have to say on first impressions it is, sorry Brixton!
Even the OAPs had to be told not to smoke cannabis in the street Shocked

Thanks for the explanation. I wasn't sure if you meant you were physically threatened. I'm glad to hear the worst you had to experience was incompetence and an unfriendly clientele.

True, perhaps the run for your life bit was a little OTT but I certainly couldn't get out of there quick enough! I didn't even finish my beer Shocked
That was only lunchtime, I wouldn't dare go there after dark Shocked

I finally decided on my top 10 JDWs out of the 342 (and counting) visited.
1.RUISLIP MANOR
2.COLCHESTER
3.FLEET
4.WALTHAM CROSS
5.WITHAM
6.RAYLEIGH
7.RAYNES PARK
8.FOREST HILL
9.TUNBRIDGE WELLS
10.HOLLOWAY
Smile
As for the worst, well, Eltham, Stoke Newington and also Stafford (where I once had my coat and bag stolenShocked) are way below standard!

Another problem has arisen, what to do about pubs that have closed? Do they still count to your total? I have 7 now gone including one of my favourites which was at Goodmayes Frown long gone.

Edit to the above. Stafford, you have climbed out of the bottom 3 thanks to Brixton Sly Alfreton is down there too! Cold sausages and off beer! Mad

Went in a Spoons a few weeks ago, brilliant experience, 4 ales on and generally a good atmosphere. We were served in a busy pub within 10 minutes and weren't I.Ded by every single member of bar staff.

We enjoyed the experience so much we have 5 lined up on our trip to Burscough.
