Very busy Wetherspoon's. Fair range of ales, seemed to be in good condition. Probably nearest pub to the railway station.

Reasonable Weatherspoons, rather more welcoming than most a good place to wait for a train at the nearby station and with large windows that make the place more airy than most such pubs on summer day. Beer range is reasonable though not very adventurous and quality good. Easy to find at the west end of Cowgate near the Bourges Boulevard/Thorpe rd roundabout.

More comfortable than most with efficient and friendly staff who actually talk to the customers, this has a more pubby atmosphere than your average 'spoons. If you're travelling on a budget you will probably end up in one of these establishments for a meal and a drink at some point - usually quick in and out - but here you might want to linger. Of the two nearest pubs to the railway station, in my opinion this is preferable to the Oakham Brewery Tap which is one of those "big barn" conversions in which I never feel at ease.

One of the best Wetherspoons I know, and I regularly visit. Has 5 handpumps for regular beers and 5 for ever-changing guests, so always something interesting to drink. Very rarely does the condition of a pint disappoint. The manager knows what he is doing, and has been here for years - a pointer to how important this function is to such establishments. Other staff are good as well - if at times overworked. Usual Wetherspoons fare as far as food and other drinks are concerned. I will continue to drink here whilst present standards are maintained. A point to mention - it has become the venue for away football supporters who are herded here from the Station by the police, so can be loud and intimidating on occasion, but relegation for Posh should reduce this now.

Another visit to Peterborough, and we called in for the curry. There was a good selection of ales on and we chose Oakham Citra and Grainstore Silly Billy. Both in good condition. Good prompt service at the bar too. No problems with either food or beer. The room appeared tidy so I would call it a good Wetherspoons.
