Graham Coombs left this review about The William Foster

A conventional modern pub/eating house, which feels as though it was once a Spoons or would like to have been. There is now an eating area to the right and a games area to the left, with the bar in the middle. Ales on were Pheasantry Lincoln Tank, TT Landlord and Doom Bar, plus some boxed ciders. Not a bad feel generally, but perhaps too many sports screens.

A large, rambling, open plan pub on one of the main , late night student streets. The inside is nothing to write home about. There's loads of TV's and a pool table. Three ales on the bar Bombardier and two from Pheasantry. My pint was in good nick, so overall better than expected especially given the earlier reviews. We'll probably not be calling again, but it was fine for one.

Big, busy pub with various rooms and the bar to the middle. Pool table to the rear. Three real ales, one @ 5% ABV. TVs and music on throughout.

One of the worst, it has five pulls, three with coming soon, one with Bombardier and the last with Milestone, the obvious choice looked decidedly dodgy with a lumpy scum topping a glass of murk. Not fancying Bombardier I plumped for a Stella which was as cold, fizzy and nasty as expected. The bar man was much more concerned that I wasn't fussed about having a Carling glass for my Stella than about the scummy soup he'd served up, ah well. It's a typical 'spoons conversion, although formerly a pub, with a raised area to the left, plenty of screens and machines. It looks like it's the kind of 'spoons where cask beer is a non-starter.
