Herbert George Wells, Woking (Wetherspoon’s)

Officially known as the Herbert George Wells the Wetherspoons in Woking is a large busy pub situated in the centre close to the station. I think the building used to be the original Woolworth’s. The centre of Woking suffers from a lack of traditional style pubs, but ironically, you probably get closest to it in here.

The food and drink is much as you’d expect from the Wetherspoon’s chain – generally good quality and very reasonably priced. There are mid-week deals on 2 meals and curry specials on certain nights. However, unlike some other pubs in the chain, there is good selection of real ales including a large choice of guest beers. There is also now an extensive selection of real ciders – 4 or 5 handpumps with more boxes in the fridge.

In recognition of the quality and choice of real ale the Woking Wetherspoons was the local CAMRA group’s ‘Surrey Pub of the Year’ in 2008.

    In my opinion as a Woking resident there is a question mark over this listing. The real ale in this Wetherspoons is served far too cold and I refuse to drink it.
    To give the Sovereigns 5 out of 5 stars makes a mockery of your rating system!!
    Woking is a real ale desert.

    Thanks for your comments Chris. I must admit I haven’t been in The Sovereigns recently but I’ve heard it’s not as good as it was when Iain was running it.

    The bar staff were rude and unhelpful when I presented them with my passport which states I’m 19, they then began to laugh and joke and refused to serve me because they said ‘it’s not me’ but obviously it is me, the place smells like shit and B.O the food is a very low poor standard which I found a hair in, if I were the owner of weatherspoons I would be ashamed by this mockery of a pub

    Spoken to very rudely by staff here
    Tall Guy with glasses and very short hair wearing a white shirt and tie
    Very miserable workers gave me dirty looks for no reason.
    Used the excuse that I had no Id to be rude although I’m 30 and been served in there for past 2 years.
    That was not the point but the attitude of staff was appalling
    I called to complain apparently was speaking to the manager called Gary that was also rude probably the same man I spoke to earlier in there.
