The William Withering, Telford

This place has been slowly fading for the last five years when it used to be smart and tidy, with a good choice of ales and well cooked food. A bit different now. Its heading towards the usual Wetherspoon grubby table standard. Some of the food, in particular the overcooked burgers and chewy steaks are inedible and there have been many refunds. The biggest disappointment is the real ale policy. The house ales from Green King etc were at one end of the bar with the guest ales at the other. The house ales are now badged up at both ends and there appear to be fewer changing guest ales. Slaters Haka seems to be semi permanent as well. The quality is indifferent and this is why this Wetherspoon has been omitted from recent Good Beer Guides with little chance of a return on this form.

The Cock Hotel, Wellington

Has just been taken over by Joules which is rather worrying as most of my real ale pals do not like their beers which are seldom seen in Wellington. We have been told that there would only be two Joules ales on and the rest would be guest ales but there were four on last week and the Hobsons Mild has disappeared. The Slumbering Monk was on too long and was dire. It is a bit of a walk out of the town centre and at the moment I'm not convinced it is worth it. A full refurbishment is promised and necessary but I have no doubt Joules will fill this pub with their unsightly tin plate tat all over the walls and destroy the ambience forever.

The Hopbunker, Cardiff

A pleasant lunch time in a magnificent bar. A great choice of real ales and an informative chap behind the bar to tell us what the beers were like. Good cider and craft selection to suit everybody. My kind of pub.
