Still a decent Wetherspoons with friendly & efficient staff, beers I had this time included Nottingham Brewery 'Extra Pale Ale' [very hoppy pint], Upham Brewery 'Autumn Leaves' [dark smooth fruity beer], Hogsback Brewery 'T.E.A.' [decent pint] & Woods 'Shropshire Lad' [nice smooth pint].

Decent enough Wetherspoons. Staff are pleasant, helpful & efficient; smoking area to the rear. Beers I indulged in included Long Man brewery ''Wild Man'' [decent pint], Prescott''s ''Hill Climb'' [citrusy & refreshing], Wood''s ''Shropshire Lad'' [very palatable], & 3 ales by Battlefield brewery ''1066'' [nice smooth dark ale], ''Saxon Gold'' [tasty, pleasant pint] & ''Sabut Jung'' [very tasty & refreshing @ 5.8% abv].

It’s been a few years since I last posted about this place, so I thought I’d better bring the story up to date. Although nothing in my previous review was actually incorrect, subsequent visits have shown it in not such a good light. At one stage, it was usual to see unoccupied tables piled high with empty plates / glasses that no-one was bothering to clear away, and (as Wezzielad said), the barstaff always served their own mates before anyone else – and completely ignored people at one half of the bar. Thankfully, a change of management, has meant that things have improved, but quality of service still depends on who is in charge that day.

Beer selection is variable, with less guest ales than some Spoons, but more than others. On my last visit I had the Lancaster Black. Unlike Wezzielad, I thought it was reasonable, but rather too cold for my liking.

Latest development seems to be a lot of normal tables and chairs replaced by high tables and bar stools. Also seemed to be darker than I remembered – but maybe that was just because it was such a miserable day outside.

6/10 – average Spoons, but with potential to be better.

I was surprised at the lack of local ales on here. None from what I could see and half of the ales were Greene King beers. Pretty decent obviously for cheapish food. I went for a pint of Lancaster Black and it tasted blandish really. I know though that this isn't the brewery as Lancaster is a brewery I rate, the ale was not well kept.
