Wetherspoons reviews



By S.

For a bar in a station, this Wetherspoons is fine. It’s cheap and easy going, although the service wasn’t great.

It’s what you might expect of a Wetherspoons pub, in a handy location if you get stuck waiting for a train.

Breakfast

Very poor breakfast, cold .would not be back
Should have went to Frank and Benny's. We were just of a plane and wanted a hot breakfast, but never got 1 here.

Sullen, unfriendly staff refused to allow me and my dog to have a drink there, even though we sat at an outside table, in the station concourse, where dogs are quite at liberty to be. Bizarre and disgraceful. My friend, who had been waiting for me to arrive, and who had been drinking there when I got there, told me the beer he'd initially been served smelled of eggs and made him gag. He had to ask for a fresh pint, which made the recalcitrant and bored barmaid sigh in disdain, as though it were below her to remedy the problem.

Awful service, rude staff. Ordered a main dish that took over 30 mins to arrive. When it did, they got the order wrong. Waitress acted as if she was doing me a favour when I asked for the proper order (another 15 minute wait). Not even an apology. Terrible experience, felt treated like a peasant, never coming here again.

Take one Wetherspoons chain pub, add to it the sombre atmosphere of a station pub and what do you get? A depressing drinking experience. Welcome to Wetherspoons Victoria.

The Venue
Sitting at the top of an escalator, above the main thoroughfare of Victoria train station, sits this Wetherspoons pub that’s been so lazily put together that they didn’t even think up a name for it. It’s simply called ‘Wetherspoons’. Original. A frontage made up of glass offers views of the depressing, cold station and the occasional pigeon that inhabits it, frightening businessmen in expensive suits as they swoop low overhead. A couple of metal chairs sit outside the entrance to the pub – although it’s hardly alfresco drinking and you can’t smoke anywhere within the station anyway – and inside the usual mix of ugly patterned carpets, sticky wooden tables and chairs and a large bar is somehow all the more depressing for its setting.

The Atmosphere
Bleak and transient, Wetherspoons Victoria attracts commuters, partygoers travelling in and out of London and, seemingly, anyone feeling a bit depressed. The staff seem disinterested and bored, and the sounds of the tannoy announcing cancelled trains and changed platforms grates on your nerves. It’s certainly not a recipe for an enjoyable pub experience.

The Food
With so many fast food joints and chain restaurants in Victoria station, the food offering at Wetherspoons Victoria doesn’t seem to do great business. Cheap to say the least, the colourful, sticky menus show pictures of burgers, chips, pies, steaks… the usual pub grub of value chains. It won’t be the best food available in the station but it may well be the cheapest.

The Drink
This Wetherspoons is Cask Marque accredited and this is the pub’s saving grace. Regular ales include Ruddles and IPA with rotating guests, and other options include the usual suspects Guinness and Stella. They do offer a few bottles of wine, too, but this is hardly the place to indulge in a bottle. Grab a pint, drink it down and head out before depression sets in.

The Last Word
Station pubs are never going to be the best examples of London’s top watering holes but Wetherspoons Victoria is poor even by train station standards.

I liked this place for the food..I know it is not an obvious choice for food but the cocktails weren't that great and neither was the service..so all in all it is okay if it is considered as a pit stop!!!
