Spoons Tours – the Ledger Building, Canary Wharf


This gem of a Spoons by Westferry station is a nautical dream. Everything from the loo doors to the colour scheme takes one to the sea or least onto a ship.


The fabulous facade boasts an ostentatious Greek Doric portico, it is immediately clear why this is a Grade I Listed Building. The former storage centre for the ledgers of the West India Docks, this is a truly stunning Spoons.

Our Kronies were £4.05, a price which indicates a high end spoons but not a centrally located one. We luxuriated in walking across a bridge to this Spoons, as well as the gorgeous view of the city basking in sunlight.



We sampled the Grain room and the Sugar room, enjoying this unique feel to a Spoons we haven’t had since the Crosse Keys.

The loos continue the thalassic theme, reminiscent here of a submarine, notably with its doors. The cubicles were hugely generous and unlike any other Spoons we have come across, there is a communal seating area outside.

The loos were filled with typical fancy spoons grand gilded mirrors but beyond that were not adorned with anything special. We visited this Spoons en route to Banqueting House, were we on our way to somewhere in the area we would happily visit this Spoons, with the proviso of it not being too busy. But it is no Crosse Keys, nor Knight’s Templar nor Ledger Building. […]
