its august, its holiday time, its staff shortages time
long wait at bar , not actually that crowded

its helps if the staff were not all teenagers, although the person who looks
like she is the manager previously worked at the Wspoons in the town centre
she had an attitude problem there as well

one customer complained her meal was " stone cold " staff took plate
no response
another customer said " its a xxxxhole "
time for Aussie Tim to send in the SAS

I do not like criticising this pub as its my local in Stevenage, and I do drop by every few days, but it has to be said that some of the staff seem to be a bit vacant.

Several times recently I have had to repeat my order (as in two pints of beer, hardly complicated ) as the first time the barperson seems unaware of what I am saying.

There was a time when pub guv'nors spent all night behind the bar, now most of the time they are nowhere to be seen !

Who had the bright idea to close this pub for a refurb for two weeks in July.

Obviously WSP can afford an empty till in the more peak times of the year.

Perhaps Aussie Tim should come and serve behind the bar after the pub reopens to explain to the regulars (like me ) why that happened. I would have thought February , and March would have been better but perhaps all the spannermen were in Florida doing their other job.

I know what the refurb is going to do , but why bother.

Run-of-the-mill spoons pub, not ever so big though.
Ten pumps for ales, the five usual poor regulars plus the five changing brews.
Not all were on though, so tried Brewdog's Magna Carter Ale and Maximus from Maxim.
Normally you do get served in order - but not guaranteed.

This W/spoons is the better of the two in Stevenage.
More a pub than a bar ( but it was a Lloyds Bank before)

The food is OK if you are feeling peckish, but a bit school dinners.

However the beer is good ,the price is right of course,and the staff know their stuff (well the regulars do anyway)

I would give it
7/10....................but avoid Friday and Saturday nights for obvious reasons.
