Aqualung . left this review about St Georges Hall (JD Wetherspoon)

According to the JDW web site this building was originally a cinema. It certainly doesn't resemble one inside consisting of a long split level room with the bar on the rear left up some steps. There is a patio on the right. The fixtures and fittings are typical and on an early Saturday afternoon the bar area was quiet as all the locals had congregated on the lower level at the front.
The bar has twelve hand pumps which had two available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom, a cider, Brains Phonics & Magnum PA, Gloucester Cascade, Moles Golden Hills, Prescott Chequered Flag and Otter Spring Otter. I went for the Gloucester beer (£2.19) which was first class.
I thought this was a decent Spoons.

St Georges Hall is a Wetherspoons that is situated in the heart of Redfields shopping area.
I was well pleased to get in here after a decent walk from Temple Meads station.
Once inside there is an oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,there are normal tables and chairs to the front,the bar is up steps and on the left side,there are tall tables and chairs opposite the bar and more normal tables and chairs to the rear.
I had a drink of Bowman Quiver,which went down very well,the other real ales noted were King Goblin,Milestone Aegir,plus Spoons regulars like Doom Bar.
I thought this was a decent enough Wetherspoons and nice too see one in one of Bristol's more run down areas.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about St Georges Hall (JD Wetherspoon)

Run-of-the-mill 'spoons, with a split-level interior containing few distinguishing features. On the plus side, there was a pretty decent selection from the 12 handpumps, including a range of seasonals such as Brain's I Sea Santa (£2.30).

This poor old Wetherspoons is not the worst by any means but it suffers from the associated stereotypical issues of a lot of outlets in the chain. Poor staff/lack of staff/lack of control/lack of interest. The ale is always in very good condition though the range like most Spoons nowadays can be extremely dull or extremely strong (7% etc). Apparently the loons like it that strong. Which brings the situation full circle. A pity becuase the staff are generally welcoming.

Blackthorn _ left this review about St Georges Hall (JD Wetherspoon)

A long and narrow Wetherspoon's pub with a small decked courtyard garden off to one side. It's on two levels with the main bar and dining area being on the higher level at the back, and a smaller couple of side bars off to the sides at the front. It seems a popular spot and was very busy even quite early on a Saturday evening with several big groups of people eating.

The loos reminded me a bit of a motorway services area with their floor to ceiling tiling and slightly garish colour scheme, especially the turquoise around the basins. Service seemed a little slow, with just one person serving (a cappuccino!) and about eight punters waiting. To be fair one or two others then turned up, but then the situation just repeats itself. They'd disappear, and a large backlog would build up before they again reappeared.

Good selection of beers as you would expect from a Wetherspoon's, with Directors, Abbot Ale, Ruddle's County, Norman's Conquest, Stormstay Premium Ale, Butcombe Gold, Thornbridge Kipling and Exmoor Fox. Ciders were Blackthorn, Strongbow and Old Rascal, plus some very dubious stuff left over from a festival that had lots of bits floating in it. My friend seemed to enjoy it though, although he sensibly left the last few millimetres in the bottom of the glass.
