A late Saturday night visit a few weeks back on my own.

Stayed for 2 pints and tucked into Windsor and Eton’s Guardsmen @ 4.2% which was on good form.

Still a standard ‘spoons overall but it does the job so there’s nothing for this reviewer to complain about…well not on this visit anyway.

A wonderful conversion of a cinema into a pub. The beer is poor and the food is frightful.

Popped in for a couple of quick pints on the way home from a recent Dulwich Hamlet home game.

5.30pm on a Saturday evening and the pub was half full, lots of food being eaten by small groups and families.

Good choice of ales, I had been drinking Baird’s Rising Sun earlier in the Fox so I carried on with the same ale here and it was also on good form.

Still quiet busy when I left at 7.30pm.

This large Wetherspoons cinema conversion was my second pub of the day yesterday. It's a truly splendid building, similar to the Coronet in North London. There's a real sense of spaciousness in here. Seating is split over different levels and the bar occupies the old screen area. 10 ales and 1 cider were on - Ruddles Best, Greene King Abbot, Harviestoun Old Manor, Sharps Doom Bar, Morland Old Speckled Hen, Summerskills Westward Ho!, Southwark Harvard American Pale Ale, Oakham JHB, Shepherd Neame Bishop's Finger, Youngs Special & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. There was a mixture of customers in here, from people in for coffees and breakfasts to people like me who were starting the day early. Service was efficient. One of the better Wetherspoons I have been to.

As Wetherspoons cinema conversions go, this is a winner. This cinema seems to have been more attractive than the average flea-pit. And in a city where a pint is often around £4, a good, unusual pint at £2 seemed a bit of a steal. Typical open-plan, zero-atmosphere, low-rent feel though.
