Lord Moon of the Mall reviews

By Carla F.

Went here to grab a quick late lunch expecting the usual unexciting but cheap and cheerful Wetherspoons fare. The menu is not the standard one, and has a particularly pathetic vegetarian selection. Tomato makes me violently ill, so I could not have the one halfway-decent looking pasta option, as the ingredients are "all pre-mixed" (and so probably stale). I requested the vegeburger without tomato. Not only was it lukewarm, soggy, and deeply unappetising, but the staff had ignored my request for no tomato. Good thing I double-checked, or my involuntary reaction to the substance would have redecorated their carpet. 1) In London, in 2013, it is not ok to ignore the significant proportion of people who don't eat meat. 2) It is really, really, not ok to ignore it when people tell you they have an allergy! It won't seem like fussiness when someone goes into anaphylactic shock.

UK pub standards must be pretty high compared to US. Spent 12 hours in London and finished the evening at Lord Moon of the Mall. Beer was great, excellent curry dishes and everyone was friendly.

Typical Wetherspoon's fare. Lord Moon of the Mall is an old bank and has high ceilings at the front of the building. Towards the back there's a non-smoking family area.

For a quick and honest pint and/or lunch Lord Moon of the Mall place will do the job, no problem. Fine for after work drinks, but definitely not one to go out of your way for.

A JD Wetherspoons pub just off Trafalgar Square, Lord Moon of the Mall is a well-managed, handsome English pub.

The Venue
Lord Moon of the Mall is a large rectangular room that has been handsomely restored. The wood-panelling on the walls is stained a warm oak colour, with nice high ceilings and a central bar. It can accommodate quite a large crowd with plenty of seating space. In the back third it is a bit quieter with book-lined shelves along one side.

The Atmosphere
A Wetherspoons pub usually attracts a pretty mixed crowd, and Lord Moon of the Mall is no exception. The other common factor to the success of their pubs are their staff - glasses are collected, service is prompt, and everything runs with efficiency. Their managers must receive good training. There is nothing fancy about the pub but you can get a decent drink and not have to worry about sticking to the floor.

The Food
A Wetherspoons menu is pretty standard - a broad menu of affordable pub grub. It wouldn't win any culinary rosettes but you can easily fill up for under a tenner. Who can complain about that? For example, on Thursdays you can get a curry and a drink for just over £6.

The Drink
Extensive is the only word for their drink choices. They deserve recognition for their support of local breweries and artisanal ales, with a constant changing menu of several different ales. They also sponsor various ale festivals celebrating this most English of drinks. Wine is on draught as well, which keeps it fresh and at just the right temperature. Their regular prices are quite reasonable but on top of that are endless daily specials. They manage to offer both selection and value for money.

The Last Word
You can't really fault Lord Moon of the Mall for much, it serves the needs of the drinking classes with an eye on service and value. It is only slightly lacking in its chain pub feeling, but it’s hard to quibble with the formula.
