The Forum is Hexham's branch of Wetherspoons. It was the busiest pub I tried in the town and in truth is not a bad option. It's located in an old cinema building and is spread over a number of levels. I never did find the upstairs bit with large glass windows overlooking the Market Square. Ales were a bit sparse at first - Big Lamp Prince Bishop Ale, Sharp's Doom Bar & Ruddles Best. But whilst I was there, Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold & Allendale Summit Single were pulled through. Ciders were Taunton Cider Company First Press Original & Weston's Wyld Wood. The pub had a lively atmosphere with older stragglers from the afternoon session intertwined with younger people beginning their night out. It was that twilight zone when both age groups were out at the same time! Moved on from here to the Heart of Northumberland and the impressive Tannery. Neither are listed on the site and I'll request them to be added. The latter was my favourite pub of the day.

I dont like wetherspoons as a rule... But they are good for certain types of cheap meals... Grills, breakfasts etc. This one did the best beer of any spoons that i have been to and staff very friendly...

The beer is usually in good nick here and the staff are mostly good when the staffing levels allow (as per every other 'Spoons) but the food is poor compared to most others in the chain. While the Moon on the Mall ones food (for .e.g) is microwaved to perfection this one is all over the place. BTW if you want your steak done medium ask for very rare.

Hexham central is a bit of an ale desert at the moment so this place is your best bet - aprt from the Dipton Mill which is right outta town.

Its fair to say but the regulars have mainly seen better days.
