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.
This Spoons is out of the way, but absolutely worth a visit. It gave us the idea of a Wetherspoons cruise, which would of course be amazing. Until that revelry comes to actuality, the Ledger Building with its spacious rooms to explore , is the next best thing.
