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

Fair-sized, 'L'-shaped 'spoons in an anonymous parade shop conversion. Variety of seating inside, but no observable features of interest. Just five different real ales from the nine handpumps on this visit - Ruddles, Doom Bar, Abbot, Trawlerboys from Green Jack and Frome Funky Monkey (£2.15, and thankfully in decent form).

This Spoons was also full to the rafters on our Saturday lunchtime visit. A lot of people having breakfast and 99% of the customers from the Carling fraternity. The pub had a slight 1930's style theme, but the majority of the décor was drab. A poor selection on handpump, apart from the Tring Moongazing. This particular Spoons is one you wouldn't go out of your way for.

Fairly standard shop conversion spoons which was very busy on my lunch time visit. Mixed clientèle of locals, families with children. I had Gold from Wold Top brewery which was fine.

This is more of an Old School JDW having opened in late 1999. It's a rectangular shop conversion with the bar at the back. It's fairly unremarkable but not hopelessly so.
The bar has sets of five and four hand pumps where the two GK beers, Caledonian Ithaca Nut Brown and Bath Wild Hare were doubled up. This left Springhead Wild Willy's Wheat Beer (£2.50) which was excellent.
I thought this was only a very slightly above average Spoons.

This is a terraced Spoon's chain pub/eatery, located within a 50's shop unit. It is named after a former pub located just down the Warwick Road. The frontage is in blue, with large windows. The interior has a couple of rooms that together form an L-shape. The decor has red, blue and coffee colours, with a patterned carpet. Info boards are on the walls (about the Speard Eagle and former footballer Gil Merrick for example), as well as a few mirrors and bits of arty art. It is of course populated by the usual Spoon's foody tables. There were silent TVs (one showing horse racing) and the usual silence was broken by the semi-harmonious singing of Irish songs by the generally more mature clientele than most Spoons. The service was very friendly. Beer; usual range of tap drinks with Abbot, Ruddles, Adnam's Ghost Ship, Spitfire and a slightly too cold Gt Newsome's Pricky Back Otchan. Not the usual type of Spoons, but i have been to worse.
