Variable. My definition of a crap place is that the only entry in the
GBG is a Spoons.

That one with staff wearing bodycams and drug dealers in the bogs is
very different to the one in a converted opera house.

For all their faults, they do have a minimum standard, and they do
reliably serve something resembling hot food without all the "FOOD
SERVED ALL DAY!!! [but not after 1pm or at weekends]" hassle of "proper"
pubs.

(all real ales at The George in Croydon are currently under GBP3)

South Wales prices are typically £2.15pp. Port Talbot maybe £1.89 still.

Airport/NEC 'spoon prices are always higher.

Because I like real ale, Wetherspoon's is ideal for me. They change their pumps regularly and have lots of different strengths. They also don't mind about changing a bad beer.

One cannot order real ale on the Wetherspoon app yet, unfortunately.
