Wetherspoons (or ‘spoons for short) is a chain of pubs, you’ll find them everywhere. They serve identical food and drinks for the most part, and they are really really cheap.
During the day they are full of old men and down-and-out types and at night get the more OI MATE type, but it’s always an extremely strange mix regardless.
They do a few things that set them apart from other pubs, which is why I like them (even though a lot of people, including my girlfriend, HATE going to spoons), including have fantastic selections of guest/international beers on tap, are cheap as chips, and are often in fantastic restored buildings. Off the top of my head, I can think of old synagogue, train stations, art deco picture houses and stately homes (I don’t know the actual term, but posh houses) that have been given a new life as a spoons.
