Good value for money. Quite nom. You can’t post this & not link up a menu. How are we supposed to assess this? 0 Vote up! Those chantenay carrots look posh for 'spoons and the pigs in blankets look good. 0 Vote up! looks great 0 Vote up! All looks very soft. Is that the Over 65s Dentures Friendly Special? 2 Vote up! Looks good but what's the provenance of the meat? 0 Vote up! Will be the only bit of Christmas cheer for a number of people - spoons fills a gap in the market that isn’t really covered by any other pub. 1 Vote up! 0 Vote up! I’ve had the IKEA one! 🎄 0 Vote up! So leave the inner city for an outer suburb? Yeo that’s likely 0 Vote up! The IKEA one looks a bit dry, did the real one have more gravy? Good turkey to veg ratio. 0 Vote up! Veg was perfectly cooked as cabbage, parsnips not dry as both cooked in jus and more gravy available. £6.95 and extra £1.50 for a side of pigs in blankets. 0 Vote up! IKEA is in Croydon. 0 Vote up! How much was the spoons dinner pp? 0 Vote up! Slightly conflicted by mash on a xmas dinner. But yeah i'd inhale that. 0 Vote up! How much was the spoons dinner pp? The main meal itself (without the pudding), about 16 quid with an alcoholic drink. 0 Vote up! Poor effort on the ikea roasties, they look wet and wrinkly. Mash has no place on a Christmas Day plate, acceptable to offer on the table to guests but only alongside mountains of perfectly crispy roasties. 0 Vote up! They weren’t roasted in oil. The potatoes were pretty good. It was coming straight out of ovens. Not stewing for hours. 0 Vote up! At least IKEA attempted roasties, unlike mr spoons. 0 Vote up! Why would anyone here go to a Weatherspoons for an Xmas meal? Most odd 0 Vote up! It’s November you khunts. 0 Vote up! What is that nasty looking concoction in the small dish with the slice of lime? 0 Vote up! Coca cola 0 Vote up! Ah, yes Rog. To be honest, the meal looks pretty grim. The Turkey looks like it’s made out reconstituted meat of dubious origin, the lardons (?) look weird, and having mash with yer Christmas roast is just meh. I suspect an M&S Christmas platter meal that you just stick in the oven is probably far better and much cheaper. 1 Vote up! Roger well identified. Spoons great for a big batch of old people with dementia as no awkwardness. No difficulty with menu as if they have forgotten to order something they actually like can just order another meal as quick and cheap. Cappuccinos literally on tap and free once 1st cup paid for. 0 Vote up! Ah the old free when you have paid for it. Ducks will be thrilled 2 Vote up! Most odd... Well yes Rog maybe when viewed through a very narrow lens. You assume too much. Maybe not all of us earn the same coin, maybe some of us dobut didnt have disposable income growing up but still love a bargain. Elitist nonsense. 2 Vote up! it’s not yet Thanksgiving you khunts 1 Vote up! Thanksgiving is for Americans FFS. That’s one thing that we must surely resist becoming part of our culture. 2 Vote up! it is perfectly acceptable to talk about Christmas stuff in november I’ve already started playing christmas tunes for the kids in the car tree and decorations will go up while it is still november albeit only just 0 Vote up! yeah but I am American Thanksgiving is better than Christmas tbh 0 Vote up! putting up our tree is embargoed until I’m back in the UK 0 Vote up! I am celebrating Yule this year instead for a change. 0 Vote up! Jesus Christ 2 Vote up! I might celebrate thanksgiving next year 1 Vote up! I admire spoons for recognising that you cannot make decent mass produced roast potatoes that are ready to serve all day and they now just refuse to serve them. 1 Vote up! Surely you’ll be having Christmas at The Savoy, Guy? 2 Vote up! If you don't have mash AND roasties on your plate on Christmas Day you're doing it wrong. 0 Vote up! wrong, mash is a waste of good stomach space better used for more roasties, pigs in blankets etc.. 0 Vote up! Heh Crypto, its funny after several years you still keep referring back to a thread about me NOT going to the Savoy. 0 Vote up! It was all a terrible misunderstanding. Guy once asked the Deliveroo chap for a saveloy and he ended up spending a fortune on taxis into Central London. 0 Vote up! heh 0 Vote up! Heh. Poor Guy. Where did you stay in the end? Premier Inn or the Brent X Travelodge? 0 Vote up! Gidleigh Park in Devon. 0 Vote up! apparently Spoons are opening a new massive new branch at waterloo directly above the massive brewdog. so there will be a pub for normal people and a pub for khunts and every station drinker must choose 0 Vote up! Choice between a decent range of drinks at reasonable prices and a limited range of over priced over hopped beer that nobody really likes but is on trend. The latter for me. 0 Vote up! I don't like that sort of beer. Greene King IPA was acceptable. 0 Vote up! In the good old days the drinking choice at waterloo was weirdly limited to small hard to find bar in a basement that was always way too hot. 0 Vote up! When the Eurostar came I think there was a little bar called Bonaparte's or Napoleon's something like that. 0 Vote up! Pancakes there already is a Waterloo pub for decent folk - the Hole in the Wall 0 Vote up! There's also the Kings Arms on Roupell Street near Waterloo East - does very good Thai food. 0 Vote up! Popped into my local Spoons on Saturday morning to have a cheeky breakfast, it was 9.30 am and the place was packed out... I thought people were struggling with bills? I couldn't get a table so had to go elsewhere. 0 Vote up! Why anyone would drink in Waterloo station when the KA is 3 minutes away is a mystery to me. Fine station pubs long ago went the way of clean and free public conveniences. 0 Vote up! Decent free loos can of course be found at all major stations…🙄 0 Vote up! I'd rather have the spoons lunch than what my office christmas party lunch promises to be (eg truffled mash instead of roasties FFS, and mushroom gravy on meat - double Ffs) 1 Vote up! There's also the Kings Arms on Roupell Street High risk that Strutter wll be there though sadly. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 1 Vote up!
