A great big huuuuge Wetherspoons, full of tourists tucking into fish & chips. Pretty the same as any other 'spoons really. Nice having no music forced down your lugholes as ever. And the Wibbler's Dengie Dark was typically cheap. I thought at the time it was £2.50 - but sounds a bit unrealistic thinking about it.
Some nice paintings and a massive library of books - which surely no-one ever uses?
As with all Wetherspoons there's not much to say, a spoons is a spoons with all the usual thrills & spills. Although this has fruit machines - I thought Mr JD didn't allow them? Or have times a-changed?
But the Shakey's claim to fame must be that it surely boasts the longest uninterrupted view in any pub in Camden. Wow!
