Far too brightly lit and cavernous to make it a pub experience to really enjoy. Not having looked closely enough at the full range on offer, I went for a pint of 4.8% Sudwerk Inbetween last night for £2.75 - it was in good condition but rather thin and bland for its ABV so not a brew I would try again. But at least JDW gave me the opportunity to try something new.

Called in once again on 12/3 for a pint en route to the RSC Theatre. The pub has 10 hand pumps, but most of them were labelled “Coming Soon.” The Duty Manager apologised for the lack of choice as they were getting ready for the JDW Beer Festival beginning on Friday 13th. I opted for a pint of North Cotswold Brewery's Windrush Ale at £2.65 which was excellent. I was also very impressed by the manager's enthusiasm to try to persuade JDW to include some beer served straight from racked casks in for future festivals.

After the RSC performance, I tried three more pubs nearby. In retrospect, I really regret that I didn't return to the Golden Bee.

I called in for a swift one at the Golden Bee last week en route to the RSC Theatre. Yes … the interior is pretty typical of many JDW outlets but I had a pint of Exmoor Wild Cat (a left over from the recent beer festival). It was in excellent condition and I have no complaints at all at being charged only £1.99 a pint.

What I specially liked was that one member of the bar staff was delegated to make all the hot drinks, whilst the other served the other drinks and looked after the till. This is a much more efficient system than in other JDW outlets I have visited where beer drinkers often have a frustrating wait when several of the bar staff wait their turn to use the coffee machine.

Definitely worth an 8/10

The Golden Bee is probably best described as having a typical Stratford exterior and a typical Wetherspoons interior. It stretches back quite a way, with an outdoor drinking/smoking area overlooking a car park at the rear. With the latest Spoons festival having just started, the beer range was good - Titanic Cappuccino, Bohemian Hazelnut Brownie, Fat Heads Sunshine Daydream, Ninkasi Cream Ale, Ruddles Best, Everards Pumpkin Ale, Wadworth WTF & Greene King The Abbot's Confession. There was also a real perry - Sandford Orchards Pear Shaped. Our second favourite Stratford pub.

Pretty standard 'spoons pub, cheap beer and food, no ambience.

Tried a pint of Hooky Gold, sadly it was so cloudy that you couldn't see through it - shame as Gold is one of my favourite beers. It was changed without question but disappointing to see it served in that condition.
