Typical weatherspoons, This time they refused to serve a girl who suffers from brain damage following a hit & run; apparently they assumed she was drunk because of her slurred speech and asked her to leave.
The thing is whenever I go to a weatherspoons (which is rarely) it seems to be the case that everyone in the place is so drunk they cant even to manage to slur their speech, and yet they get served time after time until they cant stand.
Strange way to run pubs but some people seem to like them

Very busy when we called on on Saturday morning - a good selection of ales and a fine pint of Acorn porter was enjoyed. Arrived just in time to order breakfast and although obviously standard Wetherspoons fare it was a well-cooked and presented example of its kind.

Just another weatherspoons in another city, although their food seemed far superior to anything I've had in any others.

Service was polite and fast and you get what you pay for.

Spacious bar with large windows at the front not far from the main shops and the market and just round the corner from The Old Angel(another 'spoons). Large TV screen can dominate the room. Standard Wetherspoon's fare (I had their Tuesday steak and a drink offer which although not brilliant food is good value). Acorn Brewery beers plus a couple of others but not the best selection I have seen. With a third JDW pub also very close-by you have wonder how they all make money but they seem to.

OK Wetherspoons with large areas of glazing opposite shopping centre, busier than the nearby Old Angel. Some of our party oddly had breakfasts delivered with no bacon, which was however brought later following complaint. We did not stay long as the range of ales consisted of 4 above 5% ABV, one stout and one porter: as we were on a bit of a session we sought more standard bitters elsewhere.

Modern Wetherspoons pub, but one that seems to offer a decent atmosphere, even when not full. On our visit, the beer was a bit cloudy, which really should have been better, however, I also ate, and found the food to be very pleasant and certainly worth trying again.

Modern Wetherspoons pub with plenty of tables and chairs. Surprisingly, there were also plenty of bar staff and I was served fairly quickly. I don't remember all of the beers. As usual, I sadly note them down on my mobile. But it was later stolen. However there were 8 real ales including the usual Abbot and Ruddles Best, plus beers from local brewereries such as York. Westons Vintage Organic was the cider. Not somewhere I found to be particularly comfortable. But still a good choice of beers.

Lots of chavs stood in entrance door smoking which was a bit off putting, but once inside the service was friendly and quick,and the ale selection was good especially @ just 1.80 pint!! as previously mentioned it's 3 flights of stairs if you need a piss though!! 7/10

We visited on a sunday afternoon. It was fairly quiet and the place is modern. You should take a course in mountaineering to go to the toilets, but the beer was good and the staff very obliging. We had the sunday lunch which was served fairly quickly and was hot. Served on hot plates which is good.
The toilets were clean and tidy and there is a handy disabled one handy which my partener needs. Would visit again

Not too bad, but too busy on a fri/sat. Good choice of real ales. Usual food menu. Allow time to find the toilets....!

Pretty bog standard Wetherspoons but, as usual, you can't knock them on the beers. Jaipur IPA and a pint of Black Imp both went down a treat.

a modern building. part of a new pedestrian arcade by the collonades shopping centre. The pedestrianisation theme provides for an outside seating area for the summer months, and also for smokers.
*---
the inside is also of a modern design. pretty much one large, single floor area with table seating for around 150-200.

On our sunday afternoon visit the place was queitly busy. There were 8 cask ales on, of a possible 10. These were all good names, including one of my favourites, Abbot. Standard jdw menu. We had the 2-for-7.20, fish & chips and 5-bean chilli. Both were of a good standard and arrived fairly quickly. The Abbot was also on top form.
*---
verdict:
2 meals with drinks for 10. Premium ales at under 2. The wetherspoon value sure takes some beating. will calling again on our Doncaster visits.

Large but otherwise a fairly standard Wetherspoons pub. As always decent beer and food but not that exciting.
