This is definately not one of the better wetherspoon pubs i have been in. the football crowd were very rowdy, queue to order food was extremely long and staff were slow. however they were quite apologetic about the long wait. once we had finally ordered, the food took about 40 minutes to arrive which made the kids with us highly bored and aggravated. food was ok when it bothered to arrive but you could tell that it has been thrown together rather than carefully prepared.
im just glad that all wetherspoon outlets aren't like this!
Maybe this one's gone under new management because this Spoons is nowhere near as bad as people are saying it is :O I've only been once but it was on a busy night and although it took a bit of time to be served it was a normal Wetherspoons-like time. Formulaic but at least it's predictable, and it's cheap. But maybe my taste in pubs has gone downhill since spending so much time at another Spoons in Wallington :O
If Sutton were a mouth, then the Moon on the Hill would be a cold sore. Horrible, not only aesthetically but in all its other properties, and it just won't go away. It's also located in dangerous proximity to the bandstand a.k.a. biggest chav hangout in the United Kingdom, and having two such horrible places so near one another is like casting petrol toward a naked flame.
Because of its slightly later opening times than the other pubs in Sutton, the Moon on the Hill is often the location of choice for "pre-drinking", and so is full of drunk girls wearing barely anything and rowdy men on the lookout for a fight.
I would say go there to verify my claims but I really don't want to encourage anyone to go there, whatever the reason.
A spacious but a rather formulaic Wetherspoons with all the usual characteristics. However the bar smelt like the world spewing championships had been held there during the afternoon, trying to find a table not piled up with dirty dishes was nigh on impossible, only 1 guest beer (which wasn't up to the usual high Wetherspoons quality) and a generally down market crowd made this one of the most unappealing Wetherspoons I have encountered. I thought I may have just called on an off day, but it is clear that the problems are an intrinsic part of the pub and not a good advert for the management. This is one of the worst examples of a Wetherspoons and the sort of place that gives the chain a bad name.
Wetherspoons are all very hit and miss aren't they? You know what to expect with the drinks and the menu so you are never going to get hit for £5 for a small glass of wine and they offer great value when you need a quick lunch on the cheap and its raining outside but on the other hand most of these places are overun with the hardened drinkers of the UK. The Sutton branch is one of them. I think this affects the whole pub and when we went the glasses weren't clean and neither were the tables. Head across the road to All Bar One - its dearer but cheerier.
