First pub in Swansea and I decided to head to this large corner plot Spoons' pub.

I arrived just after 12 noon & it was already busy. Quite a few diners but the majority of the crowd were enjoying the cheap ale and lagers.

10 ales across the 10 pumps, 5 serving regular ales like Ruddles and Doom Bar the other 5 offering guests. I opted for a pint of Lady Jane @ 5% from Grafton brewing, a good pint to start the day with and very cheap at £1.79.

This is a large older style spoons with a raised area to the rear that has the feel of a library about it. The whole pub is open plan with booths for diners.

Good pub to start my day in.

Went here after completely failing to find any interesting beer at the Wig or Westbourne. Agree with other reviewers - they had a very nice selection of beer, but the place lacked any kind of atmosphere. They were also serving pints in plastic glasses - I assume this isn't a police requirement, because it didn't happen at other places we went, and was a bit naff. So, worthy but dull - which beats crowded but crap (Wig, Westbourne) or just crap (Crosse Keys). But I'd stick to the No Sign bar if I were you.

Busy but characterless JDW pub, with a good range of beers. Clientele seemed demotivated and there was no energy to the place. Good prices, but that's about all to recommend it.

A decent quality, well-run Wetherspoon's pub in Swansea city centre. Good beer selection but I have to say I stuck to the Brains SA as it is one of my favourites, and I wasn't disappointed.

This was the second Wetherspoons we tried in Swansea and I found this one to be a slight improvement on the Bank Statement. Beers on were Greene King Ruddles Best & Abbot, Brains SA, Bread of Heaven & Rev James, Wharfebank Wispa IPA, O'Hanlons Flagship IPA, Thwaites Logan's Run, Robinsons Enigma, Batemans Smokey Joe. Unusually for a 'spoons, two of the ales were being dispensed by gravity. The cider was Sandford Orchards Fanny's Bramble.
