Aqualung . left this review about The Sir Norman Rae (JD Wetherspoon)

As noted below this is a modern curved building. Inside it's a single room with fairly typical furnishings. It was doing a brisk trade when I arrived on a Wednesday morning with a typical mix of families, shoppers and a few of the daytime brigade. I was after a breakfast here and was delighted to find that the standard one was only £2.79 as opposed to the usual £3.25. The large one was £4.29 rather than £4.95 but I wasn't that hungry!
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had the two GK beers, one from Settle / Nine Standards, Goose Eye Chinook, Elland 1872, Hobgoblin, Caledonian Thunder Trail, Daleside Monkey Wrench & Premium Gold and Rudgate Olympian. The absence of Doom Bore was a plus point. I had a pint of the 1872 (£2.25) porter which went down a treat with the excellent breakfast. I wasn't keen on the building but thought this was a reasonably good JDW. The JDW directory has no indication that it was once a Lloyds.

An elegant curved glass frontage ,there are two entrances from the street and you step up into a single room with a decent sized bar to the rear.For a 'spoons its not vast which helps give it some pub atmosphere but the interior has been well worn and it looks a little tired.There are two ranks of five handpumps witht on my trip thankfully only two regular ales in Abbott and Ruddles Best.Guests included Wychwood Hobgoblin,Goose Eye Chinook,Sambrooks Red Ale and Elland 1872 Porter among other which I thought was a decent range ,making this a place worth including on any crawl around Shipley.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Sir Norman Rae (JD Wetherspoon)

This Spoons was a former Co op supermarket back in the its day. You can enter the pub up a staircase along the side or via the main entrance near the market. The bar area was in the middle of the pub, situated over on the right. The bar counter was black granite and the bar front was metallic with small timber panelled sections running the bar length.
The service here was excellent and my pint of Goose Eye Chinook at £2 a pint was very refreshing.
