Paid another visit recently on a weekday afternoon.

10 pumps of which 10 were on, including Spoons regulars Doom Bar, Abbot Ale and Ruddles. The rest were all interesting offerings as part of the Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival.

First up was a pint of Island Hog, a pale and clear ale, very pleasant and refreshing. Service was friendly and the barmaid recommended another ale (or was trying to warn me off it) which a customer had told her it tasted of mince pies!

Intrigued, I went for a pint of Benjamin's, the mince pie ale in question, and was somewhat put off by the fact it is a Greene King ale. But, pleasantly surprised I was, the pump clip boasted cinnamon, cardamom and coriander, which did indeed have a bit of a mince pie taste to it. Nice and unusual, unlike most of the offerings from Greene King I have had in the past. Impressed!

The only 'spoons in town and it's on our way from the Marina Bar back to our hotel with a slight detour!

We arrived just before 10.30pm and it was still quite busy but with an older crowd, which was a relief to the wife as she's not a 'spoons fan.

Large rotunda shaped pub with a spiral staircase to one side and a semi circular bar.

Usual Wetherspoons lagers plus a whopping 10 hand pumps with 10 different ales on. I opted for the fairly local Rooster's Blind Jack @ 3.7%.

It may have been because it was a Monday or that it was late but the pub was a lot nicer than other 'spoons, a lot calmer and quick service.

Not a bad effort and worth a visit.

A pretty decent Wetherspoons (currently in the good Beer Guide), several local beers in addition to the usual suspects.

Visited here after a rather underwhelming trip to the Greyhound down the road. It was a sight for sore eyes! It was busy on a weekday afternoon and I only just got a seat. Had a decent pint of a proper real ale, which was very refreshing after my insipid pint down the road beforehand! Lots of people eating food in there too, standard for a Wetherspoons though of course. It might be 'just a Wetherspoons' but at least you have an idea of what you're going to get when you walk in. As far as the real ales are concerned, they had a fair selection and most of them seemed to be from a local brewery, but not being from the area I can't remember what it was called, it was just nice to get a chance to try something different.

About time this place had a up to date review. Went in earlier today, to find the place quite full, though not rammed. They had the Ruddle's on for 1.29 but I opted for the Old Empire which in all honesty was very good. The place is due a bit of a revamp but all in all, it is a good place to be in on a cold January afternoon. On a sub note a friend of mine has traced his ancestry back to Brid, his great-great-great Grandad owned the house which is this pubs beer garden. its quite ironic really as he was a devout Methodist!!
