See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Close to the Horniman Museum, this spacious Wetherspoon pub occupies a converted 1929 Art Deco cinema, the only surviving complete cinema building by noted architect John Stanley Beard. An impressive frontage opens into a cavernous interior on a number of levels. Tours of the circle and other normally unseen areas are offered by arrangement; resident ghosts may be in attendance. There is assorted seating on three levels and a long bar across the former stage area which is equipped with 10 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 5. Community events are hosted. Book ahead for parties and groups. *** A no admission after midnight policy applies. ***
