JD Wetherspoon

About the Pub

This is a typical Wetherspoon's pub, with a modern look and layout in a building that looks as though it used to be the electricity showrooms (various explanations exist but no-one seems entirely sure). It has a steady daytime trade and can be extremely busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Earlier in the day, and earlier in the week, it is a quiet and civilised place. It’s fully accessible, as the many mobility scooters testify.

As with all 'Spoon's pubs, service can be a little slow but the prices, especially for cask ale, do compensate for that (and perhaps explain it). The beers range across all strengths, colours and flavours, with perhaps a predominance of strong pale ales. Customers' suggestions strongly influence the beer ordering. You can expect to see beers from the likes of Brightside, Hawkshead and Kelham Island.

The pub hosts frequent "Meet the Brewer" nights.

Although the pub is essentially one large room, the usual "aircraft hangar" feel is muted by the way it is broken up into separate areas by the entrance aisle and by raised flooring at the front.

Food is much what you would expect in a Wetherspoon's pub, but there are often some good value "chef’s specials". They're not necessarily home made but they are keenly priced.

Although the pub opens at 8am every day no alcohol is served before 9am.
