Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Tiger (JD Wetherspoon)

Standard-issue 'spoons, housed in a former bakery (although you would never know it). Nothing very remarkable about the interior, but all clean and tidy. Not a bad selection from the two banks of five handpumps, from which the Fistful of Hops from Falstaff Brewery (£2.19) looked the most appealing.

This place seems to have declined since some of the reviews below as I found it to be a fairly average JDW. It's a rather dull rectangular room where the aircon ducts are exposed. The colour scheme was a rather odd red and pale green and there is lower seating and a few booths at the rear. It wasn't very busy on my Wednesday afternoon visit.
The ten hand pumps had two unused, the two GK beers doubled up, Enville Ginger, Caledonian XPA, Robinson's Trooper and Woods Pot Of Gold. I went for the Enville Ginger (£2.79) which bizarrely was priced at a huge 60p dearer than the standard guest ale. It was in reasonable condition. Later in the day I noticed the same beer on sale in their more expensive Wolverhampton outlet for just £2.65.
I really didn't think this was any more than a very marginally above average Spoons.

We popped in here on a Thursday around lunchtime and the place was very busy. In spite of this, the service was fast and efficient. Quite a few of the ales had 'coming soon' labels that had fallen off, so my choice was limited down to Exmoor Wild Cat, which was fine.

This is a fairly decent JD Wetherspoons pub which was a bakery until 2000, it is open plan but has two distinct areas, a public bar at the front and a dining area at the back. As you enter the public bar the large counter is along the left hand wall, there are two large flat screen TVs on the walls, one front left corner and the other back right corner, in the front window on the right of the room are a couple of leather sofas and there is also a mix of high and standard tables. The dining area has half a dozen booths down the right hand side, sporting celebrity paintings on the left wall and double doors at the back which lead out to a paved patio area with large potted shrubs. The patio has a view over the canal which runs directly behind the pub.

Regular ales are Greene King Abbot Ale, Ruddles Best Bitter and Banks’s Mild with up to five changing guest beers which on this occasion were Theakston Old Peculiar, Courage Directors, Holden’s Ay It and Mordue Summer Tyne. The Directors and Summer Tyne were in good condition (GBG 2012 and Cask Marque).

Building and décor are unremarkable but this is one of the better spoons in my opinion, there was once a much older pub called the Royal Tiger a couple of buildings down from here which was built in 1875 and closed in 1994. The selection of ales in here is normally well balanced across the different styles and strengths (unlike many spoons) and they keep a good pint. I shall return.

Soup Dragon left this review about The Royal Tiger (JD Wetherspoon)

I think this is about the best Spoons place i have been in - usually, i say they are what they say on the tin, but this is better. Usually there are no staff around, this place has the same amount of staff as other places, but they are fantasically cheerful and willing to help!

Eaten in here twice now and the food for me has been fine (i keep it simple - burgers!). My wife complained about her dish, which didnt look to great to be fair, but it was whisked away and replaced with a completely different thing with huge apology.

The place is clean (unlike a lot of Spoons that get really cacky with things dropped all over the floor etc). It is also furnished well; in red, dark and light green, withwood panel and yellow ceiling. The one long roomer, formerly a pub and bakery, is set out in usual style, all foody with a few sofas by the windows. The terraced pub has a patio at the back, by the canal.

I had several half pints, to try different beers: Slaters Queen Bee, Lymstone Stonefaced and Stone the Crows and Holdens Golden Glow, were all on form. Ruddles Country was fine, as the last taste of it i had was the Leeds Hotel in Scarborough (read the review and you will understand why i wanted to exorcise the demons).

This is a nice version of a McSpoons and a good pint. Nothing spectactual, but worth a drink if in the area.
