Probably the most famous pub chain there is for England. It is a relatively new chain of pubs which a law graduate opened in 1979. Now there are over 500 pubs throughout England. These pubs I have religiously visited for years - and this one is the Kings

      I'm lucky because my favourite pub is cloned all over England! I'm talking about Wetherspoon's.It's probably the most famous pub chain there is for England. It is a relatively new chain of pubs which a law graduate (?!) opened in 1979. Now there are over 500 pubs throughout England. These pubs I have religiously visited for years, because of several reasons; Value for Money - It’s the cheapest drinking venue, with the exception of a Student Union Ambiance - The pub is good, either for a quiet drink or a stop off on the way to a club Good Food – The food is always is delicious They serve all types of drink possible at brilliant prices, and often have varying deals on them. (I would specify these, but they vary pub to pub and week to week). I would say that apart from abroad and in Student bars it is the cheapest place possible pub-wise. I cannot quote prices off my head, apart from that a bottle of Stella is normally £1-£1.50. You can usually get a round for 4 people for £7.00. They serve food and have a deal where you can get two meals for £5, which makes it ideal for students. The food is what you would typically expect from a pub, All-English fayre with some extras put in. The prices, even if you don’t get the 2 for £5 deal are very reasonable and good value for money. The portions are massive. (We ordered a side order of fries and they were absolutely massive) Not only that they are lovely. I can recommend the Chicken Wrap, this is not part of the two for £5, but is the best tortilla wrap I have ever tasted. (However you must take breath mints if you choose the Chicken Wrap!) The atmosphere varies from pub to pub, depending on it’s location but Wetherspoon’s attracts a wide variety of people, young people in their twenties to the older generation popping down for a quiet drink. Also the décor varies pub to pub. For example the Kings Tun in Kingston Upon Thames is very trend
      y with turquoise walls and some are more traditional for example The Moon on Hill in North Cheam, Surrey. They don’t play music in the Wetherspoon’s pub, which may attract some people looking for a quiet drink, as you can actually hear the person talking to you in this pub! But those who enjoy pub’s like the Litten Tree, you may think that Wetherspoon’s is a bit boring in comparison when all you can hear is people chatting. This aspect may be a negative side to the pub, depending on what atmosphere you like. I think that Wetherspoon’s are a great chain of pubs, if for nothing else than you can guarantee a cheap drink with your friends or family and a good time. If you’ve been to one Wetherspoon’s and disliked it then please try a different one, because no two Wetherspoon’s are the same. You may be pleasantly surprised! If you’ve never been to a Wetherspoon’s then please try one as you may be pleasantly surprised too.
