The Skylark does everything a Wetherspoons should do. You know the drill - walk into a quiet room, see the same faces as last week, order a perfectly poured pint for a second-to-none price, enjoy your drink, repeat. The best thing about the Skylark is that a lot of the staff have been there for a few years which suggests... More

Dear Karl C, We are extremely happy that you believe that The Skylark is everything a Wetherspoons' should be. In regards to the staff member in question, without anymore clarification on who you are talking about, there is not much we can do. We have talked to all members of staff about their behaviour on the bar, as well as... More

A real gem of a find in this area and its open and serving until midnight on a Sunday which was ace. The characters in there were really nice and helpful to me when I needed the toilets. I would go back in a heartbeat.

It seems that every pub now does its "Fish Friday" or whatever deals, and most seem to use it as an excuse for rubbish food and service. But the Skylark is efficient, good quality for the price, and the beer is really well-priced. It gets really busy, over two floors, but I have never had any problems with speed of... More

Popped in here for a few drinks with friends before a night out in London. We ordered a shared platter for a light meal and it tasted nice. Drinks were as they should be in a pub.

I visited this pub on a Saturday lunchtime and it was surprisingly quiet, which was good as my friends and I got served straightaway. There was a good choice of beers on offer. I liked this pub, it has a nice interior and the staff were nice and friendly. There are 3 Wetherspoons in Croydon, personally I would say that... More

What has happened to The Skylark? This used to be a great well run meeting place but now oh dear.On a recent visit 1. There was no Guiness 2. The main draught lagers were flat and lifeless. 3. There was only one single toilet cubicle for the entire pub. This included both bar staff and kitchen staff This must surely... More

Dear Keith M, We sincerely apologise for your visit on the 28th of November. We unfortunately ran out of Guinness earlier on in the day. As for the toilets, we had plumbing issues which led to only the access toilet downstairs in use. It was an unfortunate circumstance we were in that day, and we were trying hard to get... More

2 weeks before, the above pub served a snail on the plate, and they didn't even apologize for it, terrible! Nothing has happened since then... Please be careful!
