middle class people in realising wetherspoons is reasonably priced shocker
Two steaks and a bottle of red for £18. The steaks were practically inedible, should've just got two bottles of wine really.
silly, silly article. pure posturing
but the way that article seems to completely miss the fact that Spoons is responsible for loads of pubs closing down, and rather says Spoons is the 'savior of all pubs' is a bit painful to read.
it's a terrible article but there is something about it's naivety which is quite funny.
even going so far as to describe a bargain bin roast as the "perfect first date".
Not particularly intentionally, I mean they say there's tons but I don't find myself wandering into one.
They're a weird mix of students and alcoholics aren't they?
'cos of places like Spoons.
...but I hate these sort of articles. Trying a bit hard with the everyman stance these days and railing too hard against the readership they're clearly starting to resent.
I've drunk in Wetherspoons pubs since I've been old enough to drink. They're shit. They just happen to be cheap and everywhere.
One of the commenters there almost nails it - "This writer is simply a step above you in contrariness"
We've done it a million times, it's gone half five and it's nearly Christmas. Let's just let it go this once, yeah?
did you not read his post?
Why has there been a raft of shit like this recently? Really weird.
Some pop blogger the other week writing "best Spoons in London" blog post and it getting retweeted a billion times.
i thought you meant people having a go at you. Because i obviously know that isn't you #injoke
in a Wetherspoons?
subway = shit
starbucks = shit
weatherspoons = great
I don't understand dis sometimes
Starbucks *is* shit, especially with better, cheaper cafes EVERYWHERE.
These things aren't equal to something like Spoons anyway.
tragic soul sucking black holes of atmosphere. I've put my time in with JD would rather go to a nice warm friendly pub down the road.
Whilst I'm more than happy to drink in one, this wave of reverence for them is mental. Literally the only thing drawing you in is the price. Literally. They offer a decent product for that price, don't get me wrong, but blogs and thinkpieces about them? Ridiculous.
You'll be pleased to learn my Dad actually went to a Wetherspoons for his birthday meal last week. He rang me up excited to tell me.
tbf if the Kentish Drovers was my local I'd also be like "you know what? NO"
Didn't even go to the Gatwick one when I was there on Saturday morning. Go me.
Each time was horrible.
So gutted that I've finally realised my dream of living 5 minutes walk from a Wetherspoons and its that shit heap.
most 'Spoons are grotty but some 'Spoons are nice and who's to sneer at their choice of beers, plus I'm happy with their price.
I did click the link but did not read the article...
but got too depressed being surrounded by lads with their faces collapsing who were in there for their 'morning pint'.
