We had another disappointing visit to the Welkin on Wednesday night. As Wetherspoon's go, this is poorer than average. But it always seems to be busy. The ale selection was dominated by Christmas ales. Sharp's Doom Bar, Ruddles Best & Greene King Abbot are the regular ales. Guests were Greene King Abbot Reserve, Inveralmond Bheira, Otter Claus, Daleside Santa's Progress, Bateman's Rosey Nosey & Cotleigh Red Nose Reinbeer. Staff seemed a bit too keen to point out that they were closing soon.

Like others had said this place is quite awkwardly shaped and looks like the interior may be inspired by a Soviet Union office building. And once again another a Wetherspoons in the centre of Liverpool with pretty poor customer service. I came up to the bar to see a few lads getting shown the door because one of them was 'too drunk', the one they said was too drunk had told them he had a speech impediment but the staff were having none of it, I would personally have sided with him as they didn't seem drunk in my own observation and the man they were kicking out wasn't slurring his words or anything but there you go. Anyway, this older lad and I were stood at the bar for a while waiting to be served, it seems though that if you are loud you should expect to be served first as these two other lads out of nowhere with daft haircuts and acting like showmen got served immediately, fair to say the lad next to me was as unimpressed as I was, it may be worth adding that it wasn't busy either. I went for a pint of 'Lurcher Stout' which was just okay and barely had any flavour.

First of 7 pubs in Liverpool yesterday. It was busy on a Sunday lunchtime. This isn't the best Wetherspoons in Liverpool. But it's popular as it's very close to the main shopping centre and in the Cavern Quarter. Ales were Greene King Abbot & Abbot Reserve, Ruddles Best, Oakham JHB, Cotswold Spring OSM, Sharps Doom Bar, Thwaites Wainwright & Everards Terrapin. None of the 4 we tried were any good. No real ciders are stocked.

Saturday morning around 11 am and the place is packed solid - most people having breakfast which is one of Wetherspoon's better offers. Several stag/hen parties obviously getting ready for a day round the City's boozers (or perhaps getting over last nights drinking). Anyway service was pretty good with bar staff not nipping off to servce food - they actually appeared to have special waiting staff just serving food. Swift half of Robinson's Road Runner and then onto the main business of the day (proper pubs)

After finally locating the Tavern on the Green in the Liverpool One shopping centre, we retreated to the Welkin in the Cavern Quarter. I hadn't been here for nearly 3 years. But little has changed. It was very busy on our Saturday lunchtime visit, with a mixture of shoppers and people starting their evenings out a little early. Beers on were Peerless Full Whack & Triple Blond, Wolf Whistle, Greene King Abbot & Ruddles Best, Yeovil Star Gazer, David Ramsbury Smuttynose Mild, Ramsbury Flint Knapper & George Wright Longboat. Ciders were Westons Old Rosie, Cider Twist & Marcle Hill & Mr Whiteheads Boxing Dog. Was served fairly quickly. Will upgrade my rating slightly.
