This Months Competition

The Coronation Hall – Surbiton

This month we visited The Coronation Hall – alias the Tardis. This Wetherspoons pub is not a classic one, it is steeped in history which is depicted in its theatrical old movie memorabilia. Originally a lecture theatre opened the day before the coronation of King George V, 1911, later the Roxy Cinema, then Ritz bingo hall. The huge high gold arched beams give it a spectacular crowning ambiance.

Each night has a great value Special meal. Eggs are RSPCA free range, dairy products and potatoes are 100% British, British and Irish Beef, Rainforest Alliance certified coffee and sustainable fish too, which was a nice surprise. Choices include vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. With large portions of delicious chicken/bbq rib combo and mixed grill we were struggling to fit in a dessert, but the refreshing knickerbocker glory and millionaire sundae still slid down; shame we were too full for the American pancakes and cheesecake.

You can also hear each other, the acoustics are great and no background music, which is wonderful. It serves a vast array of draft/bottled real ales, craft beers, wines and cider from around the world, cocktails, lagers, spirits. Drinks start at just £1.99! Popular with all ages, commuters love to pop in on the way home from work.
