Hipsters hate 'Spoons despite it being the exact same bottles and cans and maybe even pints at a reasonable price. What the hipsters are actually doing is sneering at the 'Spoons clientele. Which is not very nice

Really? I thought it was more to do with its obnoxious brexit supporting owner?

I haven't been in a Wetherspoons for years.

Maybe they have changed in that time but I couldn't stand the sticky floors and lack of music.

Doubt that 98% of the punters even know - or give the tiniest shit about - who the owner is. All they know and care about is that they're getting food n drink at a fair price - even in the Red Lion airside in LGW North Terminal. Maybe even especially there :cheers:

I don’t think thats true Tom. Hipsters drink a different type of beer that Wetherspoons rarely stock. Maybe Punk or some crappy pale that no one can keep down. Doom bar and Abbots ? Jesus wept. Their beer is never in good nick and often stale as HT says. Saying that I’ve drank plenty in the one outside Victoria on the way to games.

They serve a purpose. Cheap grog and scran. Some are undoubtedly nicer than others, I went to one in Newquay which was lovely. Great location by the harbour, nice building, spotlessly clean and an Eggs Benedict (plus limitless coffee) for less than 4 quid which was frankly superb. Of course some are open sewers with many people hosting less teeth than eyeballs, but thats like any other pub. The Spoons in the Marina is ok, nice outside area too.

I take as I find. That George Street one was grim, but most are alright.
