The Amber Rooms is a Wetherspoons pub.
Once inside there is a decent sized square shaped room with the bar on the left side,the room is carpeted and the seating a mix of normal tables and chairs and tall tables and chairs,there is also a decent sized room upstairs which has an outside balcony to watch the traffic go by.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Trumans Lazarus,which went down well,the other beers noted were Elgoods Greyhound,Robinsons Trooper,Ringwood Forty Niner,the Spoons regulars were Ruddles Best and GK Abbot.
I thought this was a decent Wetherspoons to have a drink in.

Far superior to the other Spoons and a far better selection of ales. With the Needle and Pin and the Swan this is a good area of Loughborough for drinking and as I was staying at the Travelodge about fifty yards away, these place are where I finished up.

This Lloyds is housed in a very futuristic looking building, with quite a bizarre looking roof canopy. The modern interior is open plan and industrial looking. The walls were painted in dark greens and burgundy and steel shaped plates were the main features on the walls. The pub was fairly busy on our Tuesday eve visit. Eight handpumps on the bar with a few pumps doubling up, we found three guests beers, so we went for the Elgoods Lazy Dog. Adjacent to the building, on the right hand side is a stairwell leading into a handy cut through back into old Loughborough near the church.

This is a Lloyds No 1 dating from 2003. It has a modern decor and had background music playing on my morning visit. Upstairs there is a small area where one solitary soul was sitting. There was no obvious sign of the Spoons daytime crowd, the customer base being very mixed.
On the face of it, the beer selection has improved as there are now eight handpumps, the newer ones being fairly obvious. Sadly the two Greene King beers are doubled up which makes you wonder why they bothered adding them. Happily the remaining four pumps were not wasted with boring national brands but were selling Rooster's Yankee, Brewster's Aromatica, Celt Experience Native Storm and Everard's Terrapin American Ale. I went for the Celt Experience Native Storm (£1.99) whch was in good condition. The price of a standard guest ale here is 36p a pint cheaper than the other Spoons in Loughborough.
This is a fairly average sort of Spoons but does have plus points. You don't find many nowadays with guest ales under two quid and if you come by bus from the station you get dropped off outside the doors.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Amber Rooms (Lloyds No1)

Modern Lloyds No 1 with a reasonably-sized main bar (with six handpumps, not all working, and the only beer of interest being Hawkshead Red at £1.79) plus another smaller bar upstairs (no real ale) and a patio beer garden. Main point of interest are some solid stone 'pictures' as you go up the stairs.
