The Colley Rowe was our second pub of the morning on Saturday and the second Wetherspoons. This one felt a little more cosy than the Eva Hart, if Wetherspoons can indeed be cosy. It was busier too, with a lively set of locals near the bar already well on their way! Ales were Fullers London Pride, Sharps Doom Bar, Ruddles Best, Arkells Kingsdown Special Ale, Weltons Broadwood & Banks's Feral Hop Hog. Ciders were Westons Old Rosie & Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. Westons Country Perry was also available. I opted for the Perry, only to be told that CAMRA vouchers cannot be accepted for ciders and perries. This was clarified to mean that they could only be accepted for "guest ciders and perries or guest ales". Well if Westons Country Perry is not a "guest", I don't know what is. Yet another fail from Wetherspoons. Acceptance of CAMRA vouchers seems to be very hit and miss.

My local when I'm feeling tight and good when the beer choice is there. It's a wetherspooon and they are all much of a muchness. As the previous comment said a few colourfull charecters but I've been in far worse pubs.

This is my local and whilst the clientel have always been a bit colourful, the atmosphere has never been threatening in any way. Of a weekend there are a lot of families in and whislt this can get a bit noisy and annoying, that's all it is.
The food is good value and is usually ok, although there is a tendency to run out of items and forget to mention it unless challenged.
This is very much a lager pub and in the last year or so it has not been uncommon to walk in and have a choice of just one and this from a pub that the manager states should always have Abbot, Ruddles and 3 Guest beers on at all times. Absolute rubbish.
I agree with the earlier post on 'coming soon' beers, that can sit there for months and then just vanish without ever arriving. Very poorly managed, but I would be lost without it.

Seems to have gone downhill since the smoking ban. Always very quiet in there (or was the last 4 or 5 times I've been). Same old drunks/thugs hanging around making lots of noise though - but as I said in my old review, we have never encountered any trouble and have only ever seen one fight/scuffle in the many years we've been going there on and off.

Food is still fine and value for money and while not exactly gourmet cuisine, is always cooked properly and tastes good.

Still a pretty good selection of real ales, although not as many on at any one time as there used to be. Always seems to be at least 3 or 4 of the pumps with a 'coming soon' label on them (coming soon was on one particular ale for at least 4 weeks - havent been back since to see if its still there!).

As my local I am still happy to go here for a few drinks with friends, but it is never going to be the greatest pub in the world - just avoid any run-ins with the regulars if you can!

over the past few months i have become a regular customer and i have to say about the change in atmosphere. obviously there have still been the odd arguement but what pub doesn't. i have also realised that the food is getting better and better.

i would definitly advise people to come to the colley.
