The last Saturday before Christmas and another football trip has me in Stoke on Trent at 11am, I have 3 pubs in the area to visit and I want to tick them all before kick off.

My first stop is this lively smaller than average size 'spoons in Stoke High Street.

Just after 11am and the pub is rammed, barely a table free with the 'spoons breakfast going down like a storm.

On the bar are 2 banks of 6 hand pumps which each pump offering a different ale with several on offer from smaller breweries. I make a quick decision and decide on a pints of Celt Experiences' The Lost Antlers @ 4.4% and Wincle Brewery Wibbly Wallaby @ 4.4% both at the reliable 'spoons price of £2.20 a pint.

I’m unsure what the building was before Mr Martin's company got hold of it but it has a feel of an old furniture shop about it. A sign written on a blackboard by the bar proudly display's that the pub has been in the GBG since 2008, based on the couple of pints I had I'm not surprised, the ales were very well kept.

A very nice pub with good ales and friendly, attentive service this was a good start to the day.

At first sight, this is a bog standard Wetherspoons outlet, but where it bucks the trend is the excellent service, not normally a feature of Tim Martin's establishments. On a busy Friday lunchtime, I was served with drinks almost immediately, the food soon followed. The tables were cleared (and cleaned) very promptly. There were 12 hand pulls in use – three or four the usual JDW suspects, but also a good selection of guests from near and far. I opted for a Marston's Old Empire – one of my favourites and I wasn't disappointed.

There certainly did not appear to be too much evidence of the Stoke lowlife frequenting the pub, the major downside was running the gauntlet of the smokers gathered around the entrance.

Having reread my previous review, I think I was unduly harsh. This place has smartened itself up a bit. The No Smoking notice on the door to the loos has gone, service is prompt and efficient (well for Wetherspoons anyay), and the range and quality of beers good. On my last visit the 11 handpumps in use contained 6 guest ales, 1 house beer, Abbot, Ruddles & Doom Bar. I tried the Rhymney Export and Jurassic Dark which were both very nice. The most unusual feature I noticed was that the staff were all wearing what appeared to be matching blue butchers aprons ! Never seen that in any other Spoons. Unfortunately, this is Stoke, so the clientele are still somewhat rough, with many chainsmokers congregating just outside the doors.

5/10 – run of the mill Spoons

I always make for here when in Stoke - only 10 mins from Railway Station.
In here last Saturday just before 11.00.
They have 12 hand pulls with no less than SEVEN different guest ales.
They vary in price from £2.15 to £2.40 depending on the strength.

Not sure why we re-visited this Wetherspoons. We should probably have headed to the Glebe instead. Nevertheless we did and the beer range wasn't brilliant - Greene King Abbot, Bass, Theakston Old Peculier, Tring Colley's Dog, Mordue Workie Ticket, Milestone Little John & Slaters Haka. The lack of a dark beer or any ciders was disappointing. Discounts are offered for CAMRA members. But these are poorly advertised.
