Alton’s answer to gothic style architecture, the ivy house was a behemoth of a Spoons, imposing and large. Advertisements
We visited the Bank of England museum where we saw the new £10 featuring Jane Austen. We fancied a pint in the city and discovered that there was a Wetherspoons a short bus journey away, that we had hitherto not visited.
The moment we discovered that Wetherspoons were serving pizza our raison d’être was decided. This dream begun on our fateful visit to Old Street’s Masque Haunt and after a trip to the cinema we had a dinner date in Spoons.
Named for the lavish dramas popular in Tudor times, this Old Street Spoons looks tiny but goes very far back.
This Spoons is one we visited briefly many lord moons ago. Absolutely rammed, we vowed to visit again on a day and at a time we were confident the spoons would be less congested. Nearby the majestic lions of Trafalgar Square, the most notable aspect to this Spoons is its prime location.
‘Twas a glorious sunny morning when we arrived in Leighton Buzzard, fresh from a 45 minute train journey from London.
This Spoons retains the name of the pub which opened in 1850 in conjunction with New Barnet station.
