Maybe I caught them on an off day but they had just one ale on which was pure garbage ended up changing it for lager. Typical Wetherspoons but you are really limited for ale outlets in Yeovil pity this place was only masquerading as one.

See my comments of October 2010. Nothing much has changed - mind you, I tasted 9 different beers (all thirds!) and they were, without exception, in good nick. It's a great pleasure to be able to taste so many different beers that are not normally seen hereabouts. Early doors is absolutely fine!

Not impressed, I agree with most of the other comments. I no longer go here even if am nearby and have my CAMRA tokens. No good trying to start a conversation with most of the other customers, unless you speak Neanderthal or Polish...

As other reviewers have noted this is a pretty ordinary Wetherspoons, but it's not bad early doors and it is very conveniently situated next to the bus station, which suits me and my bus pass absolutely fine!! When I called last week, they had just started their Beer Festival and had 5 Festival beers (which they serve in thirds of a pint if required) as well as 3 other real ales and 4 real ciders. All of those I tasted were good. The young staff could do with a bit more training - had to ask twice for a top-up and the young girl didn't seem to understand.
I don't think it would be a good place to be on Friday or Saturday at 10pm!

Seems to be the fashion to criticise all Wetherspoons pubs. OK, so this isn't the best of them, but it isn't the worst by any means (Street probably wins that prize!) Beer is always well kept, and staff are pleasant. Music is awful, but then if they had Classic FM on I'd probably be the only customer! Yeovil has lost so many town centre pubs that this one fills a large gap. Not as black as it's painted by some contributors!
