JDW have upped their game enormously in thepast couple of years, which means that the old-style Spoons look even worse in comparison to their newer, cleaner brethren.

This is an old-style Spoons. It's dirty, the customers are here because it's cheap and for no other reason, the staff don;t seen to give much of a toss about improving the place. On the night I was lucky enough to visit the real ale choice consisted of Wobbly Bob, Ruddles, Abbot, Doombar and JHB, which is usually one of my favourites but tonight would have been sent back anywhere else. Here, though, what's the point? I know from experience that you're not going to get any better.

A drink in this place reinforc es the opinion that there is clearly still a market for pubs catering to the lowest common denominator, and also shows that while they're all in here they aren't anywhere else.

This Wetherspoons was the second pub I sampled in Acocks Green last night. The nearby Westley Hotel also houses a nice and busy pub with 3 ales on. Whilst there were a couple more beers on in the Spread Eagle, they were all pretty bog standard - Batemans Rosey Nosey & XXXB, Greene King Abbot & Ruddles Best & Adnams Broadside. Ciders were Westons Old Rosie &Wyld Wood. As if often the case, the beers 'coming soon' seemed more interesting than the beers being served. Nevertheless, the pub has slightly more character than most 'spoons. It has 2 separate rooms and the barman was fairly pleasant. Fairly average overall.

A nice enough spoons'-quick service but the outside smoking area left a lot to be desired-Two wooden tables adjacent the Poundstrecher loading bay(classy) but at least it was somewhere to grab a fag and the ale was decent too..7/10

Not being a fan of Wetherspoons houses I was pleasantly surprised to discover quite a mellow, efficiently run bar when I dropped in one late Sunday evening. The ale was nicely kept, and the service was pretty good in comparison to nearly every other Spoon I've been in. Clearly I visited at the right time. A minor spat between members of a card school flared up and blew over just as quickly, in slightly comic fashion. I'd call in again when next in the area.

Bog standard Wetherspoons. Takes an age to get served and no atmosphere at all, everyone just staring silently at Sky News.
