Moon Under Water, WC2H 0DT

BEWARE! As of March 2004 this is now a "Lloyd's Number One" pub; it's still owned by Wetherspoon's, but the prices have roughly doubled, there are fewer seats, and there's loud music everywhere. Information below may be outdated. -- Roger


At least 4 regularly changing guest ales and a decent selection of bottles.


Wetherspoon's standard menu, City prices

Service and Ambience

The pub is extremely large inside; it used to be the Marquee Club until December 1996. It's now a rather soulless generic Wetherspoon. Service is surprisingly good, and the London Pride was well-kept (in January 2003).

Clientele is mainly pre-theatre, but there are quite a few all-evening drinkers.


The entrance area has a few tables, then it's down a short flight of steps to the main bar area. More tables here, and a raised area with booths to one side; more tables up steps towards the back door into Greek Street.

Toilets are upstairs to the right of the main bar (and not obviously signposted). More tables up those steps, overlooking the main bar area, presumably for the weak-bladdered.


No function rooms. Almost entirely non-smoking.

Toilets are very clean and inspected regularly (at least the Gents are). There is often an attendant vending lollypops and shaving tackle, giving you a wipedown with a wet towel and soliciting tips.
