We were passing through on the way to the station. As our previous experiences of wetherspoons breakfast were not too good we were a bit dubious. However we were very pleasantly surprised. What a marvel deputy manager Paul was. He was serving everyone at the same time and doing it very well too, so no waiting. The breakfast this time... More

The food is ok, a bottle of Prosecco is just over £10 and the staff do their best. I've only given it three stars because it can be a bit rough. Saying that, I drink here... More

I went to this pub for breakfast, it was not too busy. Food delivery was fairly slow for a Wetherspoon pub, but was of good quality. Worth a visit, It is very close to Barking Station.

Small and cosy. Not my favourite place in Barking. But right on top of the station for getting home. And very close to taxi rank and cab office.

Three of us came here, early on Saturday morning, for breakfast. The food was really tasty and excellent value. I had latte that was better than any Costa type place. The only member of staff on duty was friendly and welcoming. We wouldn't hesitate to return.
