Now closed. Did not renew lease since it was too expensive to do so.

Popped in to have lunch, which, at over 10 for a meal and a pint, is OTT for me with my recession hit budget. I won't be doing that in a hurry again, and certainly not in thias bar. The lunch was disgusting. Ultra cheap ingredients were used. I expected something far better of the Beef and Ale pie on the menu at 7.99. It was yuk. The pie they used was certainly not home-made [long gone are the days when pubs prided themselves on their homecooking of simple meals for workers]. This was mass produced garbage. The pie was of the type you could buy in a local cut price supermarket at 1.50 for 4. The mash potato was made from potato powder, and the vegetables, broccoli and carrots, looked as if they had come straight from the freezer to a microwave then to the plate. Total food material costs I estimate @ 1, If I were to buy the ingredients for the recipe = 800% markup. A nice little earner for Wetherspoons. I won't use their meal service for lunch ever again.

The pie was practically three-quarters empty, with but a few and meagre lumps of meat at its bottom, nowhere near the substantial midday meal a worker requires to sustain himself.

Even less atmosphere than your average Wetherspoons. A bit like having a pint by the popcorn dispenser prior to going in to the cinema. Ale was just about drinkable and the window seats afford a view of the slow moving traffic on Finchley Road.

This place is diabolical - worst wetherspoons I've been in yet.

The service in here atrocious - I had three tries at getting served on a Friday evening, and was ignored in favour of other people pushing in on each occasion.

It's woefully short of staff for the demand, and those they do have are rude and unobservant. I left having bought nothing and therefore cannot comment on the quality of the beer, and it really puts you off lining wetherspoons coffers with your hard-earned money when this is the contempt they show for their customers.

It's dark and dingy as well, and again as is normal with wetherspoons the tables are all filthy.

Definitely one to avoid like the plague, particularly as there a good alternative pubs in that area.

Popped in for a quick one last night. Big place, opening onto the upper floor of the shopping centre. Plenty of light from the long windows facing out onto Finchley Road. Quick service, pleasant staff at bar and in the pub (one of whom was just cleaning the table I went to sit at) with plenty of ales on tap but let down by a really boring selection. I had Abbot at 2.75 but otherwise it was things like Greene King IPA and London Pride with the most exciting choice being Bishops Finger. One ale from a smaller brewery would be nice but that's my only real gripe.
