The Commercial Rooms (JD Wetherspoon) in Bristol

Well described below, I was particularly impressed with the magnificent cupola dominating the main bar area, part of its former glory, and I couldn’t help feeling a little sad both by the presence of a forgotten celebration balloon still bobbing up there out of reach, and the unfortunate juxtaposition of tacky mute gaming machines partially obscuring a large oil painting, which while it may have little historic significance, is still a work of art from the pub’s days of beign a gentlemen’s club (a proper one, not the Spearmint Rhino variety). Twelve ales on including Abbott, Doombar, Ruddles and guests from Steam Box Bitter, Oakham’s Citra, Twisted, Moles, Quantock, Exmoor, Arbor and Beero plus one whose clip I couldn’t read. One of the better ‘Spoons I think. Staff were excellent, good humoured and friendly, again a cut above many other ‘Spoons. I’d definitely include this one in a town crawl.

A Hungry Horse on a main road, with a car park at one side and a fairly ordinary garden with benches, tables and instruments of torture for children at the back. The single large L-shaped bar is reasonably comfortable, but like so many of these places the atmosphere is ruined by uncontrolled children and loud cretins. The food was the usual Bake Brothers stuff, cheap ingredients microwaved by a person in a chef’s uniform. There were 3 ales on – GK IPA, Abbot and Doombar. The ale was badly kept and in poor condition. The staff were good though – very welcoming and friendly, though there was a lot of confusion about what was and wasn’t on the menu and which beers were part of which deals. I don’t think I’ll be hanging here too often.

A small but varied selection: Adnams Ghost Ship* Brewhouse & Kitchen Braxator Brewhouse & Kitchen Invarsity* Banks & Taylor Dragons Gold The Dragons Gold, as with so many of B&T's beers was a worthy contender for BABOTW but the Ghost Ship was deeply appreciated on a warm evening. BOTW Brewhouse & Kitchen Invarsity. Never been to a B&K before so this IPA brewed in Bedford was a pleasant surprise.
