Al Bundy left this review about The Rupert Brooke (JD Wetherspoon)

A fairly standard Wethers. Its a long, single, slightly curved room with the bar to your right on entering from Castle St. There is a large air con duct that dominates the length of the ceiling. 10 handpumps on the bar with the 3 nightmares doubled up. The other beers were Grainstore Calcutta, Bombardier and Trying Side Pocket making up a rather poor selection. To the left of the Castle St entrance there is a net covered courtyard.

This Spoons dates back to Summer 2000. it looks like it has been constructed from some old shed but was apparently an indoor market. At least this means it doesn't have a low ceiling so is a bit lighter than some of their outlets.
On my visit the ten hand pumps did not have that good a choice on as Ruddles, Exe Valley Autumn Glory and Grainstore Rutland Beast were all doubled up. This left Abbot and Doom Bore plus two from the previous festival, Long Man Old Man and Shepherd Neame Red Sails. I went for the Old Man (£2.05) which according to the menu was the regular standard guest ale price. This was in excellent condition. I also tried the Rutland Beast, also in good nick but I was charged a staggering £2.89. There is a blackboard on the bar with the guest ales listed but it does not include the price, nor are there any price tags on the pump clips. I also noticed that on the menu the standard guest price was £2.05 but on the discounted Monday Club was £2.15!
I left here with the impression that it's a badly managed Spoons so gets a couple of points deducted.

A large JDW that was once an indoor market. There's a conservatory area to the left as you enter and a raised family area to the rear, that's the end of the interesting features. I first called in here on a Thursday night, there was football showing on a big screen and the place was packed. After a 10 minute wait at the bar I walked out. Visited again on the following Friday lunchtime. Rather better this time although the service was still pretty slow, even though the place wasn't busy. I had a pint of one of the guest beers whose name escapes me and my notes, it was in good condition. Not for the faint hearted at nights, but not bad during the day.
