[[Category Wetherspoons|Wetherspoons]] pub in [[Locale Hammersmith|Hammersmith]], near the stations. Previously part of the Lloyds No 1 sub-brand, as of March 2012 the Pubs Galore comments linked below note that all the Lloyds branding has now been removed and it seems to be a regular Wetherspoons again.
This is one of those huge rambling Wetherspoons pubs, in a rather pretty old building with Morris wallpaper and interesting panelling inside. Unfortunately, it has all the appealing character of a post-apocalyptic squat, with tribal bands of barbaric subhuman accountants and shop workers roasting pigeon corpses on pointy sticks by the flickering light of plasma screens as football flags and lager bunting drape across the elegant Victorian ceilings overhead.

It's in a rather pretty old building with Morris wallpaper and interesting panelling inside. However, it conforms to the usual "low ceiling, very little natural light" school of Wetherspoons, and even the artificial lighting is kept dim. The seating is a mix of banquettes, sofas, high chairs and tables, and normal chairs and tables.

On [[Kake]]'s Sunday afternoon visit in August 2011, there were two real ciders on — Sandford Orchards Devon Scrumpy and Mr Whiteheads Cirrus Minor — and eight real ales: ESB, London Pride, Old Speckled Hen, Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale, Ringwood Fortyniner, Butcombe Blond (£1.08/half), and Adnams Broadside. The Butcombe Blond
was fine; it tasted fresh and was served at an appropriate temperature. There was no music when I arrived, but it started playing around 5pm.

[[Sam]]'s verdict: Gorgeous building, pity about the pub. It has all the appealing character of a post-apocalyptic squat, with tribal bands of barbaric subhuman accountants and shop workers roasting pigeon corpses on pointy sticks by the flickering light of plasma screens as football flags and lager bunting drape across the elegant Victorian ceilings overhead.

Accessibility: No step at the King Street entrance (
didn't check the other one). Once you're in, it's stepfree to the bar, some of the seating, and a RADAR-locked accessible toilet (to which the barstaff have a key). The other toilets are down a wide flight of stairs with a handrail and two bends. Some of the seating is on a dais. Some of the seating that isn't on a dais is at high tables.

They didn't serve anything particularly drinkable either - at least, at the bar I was at they didn't, but it almost certainly has quite a few more.
