Last October, the local rivers - Sow and Penk - burst their banks, near this pub.

And caused serious flooding/water damage - and the pub has been closed since.

Remedial and refurbishment works have been ongoing - with the latest scheduled reopening date, in early May.

Bog standard JDW in a very pleasant setting, service was fine when I visited, close enough to station.

One of my favourite Spoons conversions of an old cinema, turned into a 3-level pub, with high ceiling and very airy feel. Plenty of real ales, including local Slaters.
Suffers from the same staffing formula applied to all Spoons which is that available staff reduce the busier the pub gets, meaning waits of 10 minutes to get a pint and people getting served out of turn. Feel like suggesting a deli counter machine with now serving, or post office booths with barman number 2 please. And those wanting mocha-latte-skinny-cappuchinos which take 3 minutes to make should automatically go to the back of the queue.
Nevertheless still an outstanding conversion, if you are prepared to wait for your pint.

Paid this 'spoons a quick visit yesterday whilst changing trains at Stafford. It should only be about a 5-6 minute walk from the station. But in the snow and ice, it took a little longer. That left us with just 10 minutes for a swift half. We then proceeded to wait 10 minutes to be served with the one barmaid taking food orders and making coffees and teas, whilst serving people out of order. Finally a manager came out and served us,leaving us to down the halves as we walked straight for the exit. Beers on were Greene King Abbot & Ruddles Best, Marstons Pedigree, Slaters Arctic & Top Totty, Tring Brookman's & Belhaven St Andrews Ale. There were no real ciders or perries. The building itself is an old cinema and the interior is as large and impressive as you'd expect. Shame Wetherspoons just can't seem to get service levels up to a decent enough standard.

Its a Wetherspoons. Good ones are like hen's teeth but this isn't too bad
