We visited this venue on Saturday 14th March 2014 before entering we were greated by a very pleasant member of the door team who knew his role and opened the door for Us ( well done sir ) being a Saturday We expected to wait a while at the bar this however was not the case service was very fast and I have to say the uniform these guys wear is very smart there was enough seating and the punters were of varied ages all well behaved My partner wished to purchase some ciggies so I suggested asking the doorman He was very polite and told Her there was a kiosk just around the corner in the precinct ( closes at 11pm ) an all round good pub shame no music as the venue next door WonderWorld is shite cost £18 for us 2 to get in £3 to hang coats drinks were dear so afford Wonderworld stick with Wetherspoons

An example of why real ale, while important, isn't everything. Some good choices on tap and there is a rotation scheme but it's an aircraft hanger of a place tacked on to the admittedly astounding Snowdome. Little choice elsewhere in a Kingdom of chains and concrete.

Popular Wetherspoons branch on the outside of a small shopping mall holding a cinema. The interior has pastel coloured walls and a modern feel. Clientele were a mixture of young and old. Several ales were on including a couple of their US beers from the recent festival. Cider was Thatchers Cheddar Valley. Does what is says on the tin.

A modern, purpose built Wetherspoons pub located within the Xscape centre. Curves seem to be the central theme of the pub, with everything from the building itself, the bar, plates on the ceiling, rails on a partition and even some of the tables being curved to some degree or another.

Decor wise its all a bit of a mismatch, with at least four different hues of paint being used Turquoise, Pale Blue, Mustard and Maroon. Most of the flooring is carpet, although there are some big areas of wooden flooring as well. One area at the rear is up a couple of steps and partitioned off to break up the space a little, and the front area has full floor to ceiling windows looking out on to the patio, as well as portholes painted on to the walls and wood panelling on the lower part of the walls giving a slightly nautical feel. Besides the usual tables and chairs, there was also a leather sofa or two. There was a bank of fruit machines opposite the bar, and a few plasmas showing a news channel, although there was no sound.

Bar staff seemed friendly enough, if a little dopey. The barmaid who took my food order seemed to have no idea what a Chicken Bhuna was, and I had to spell it twice. Then I flummoxed her completely by giving her 10.59 for a 5.59 bill. Overall though, this isnt too bad a place, although obviously it doesnt have the architectural interest of some of the companys other outlets. But being in Milton Keynes, it would be somewhat out of place if it did have any architectural significance.

Good choice of beers on tap, although they are currently running a beer festival, so I dont know what the usual choice is like. On this occasion besides the usual Abbott Ale and Ruddles Best, there was Whitstable Bay Organic Ale from Shepherd Neame, Batemans XB, Hook Norton Flagship, Titanic Fit Out, Everards Whakatu, Brains Dark and Thwaites Daniels Hammer. Ciders were also well represented with Strongbow and Thatchers Gold being joined by Two Trees Perry and Black Dragon, both from Gwynt y Ddraig and Westons Twist with ginger.
