Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Sir Timothy Shelley (JD Wetherspoon)

Not a very interesting-looking 'spoons, proving even duller inside unfortunately... Dark too, apart from a small covered yard with a glass roof. With the usual fit-out, the only thing of note was the display of pump clips in the stairwell leading to the upstairs toilets. Eight of the ten handpumps were in use when I visited, with real ales including Smokestack Lightnin' from Dorking (£2.45) and a couple of strong local beers from Arundel and Langham. NB - Almost directly opposite the company's larger Three Fishes, and currently for sale or let.

This is the older of the two Worthing Spoons having opened in December 2000. It's not an identikit Spoons like those that opened in London and other places in the 20th Century but is more typical than the neighbouring Three Fishes. On my Saturday morning visit there were some daytime Spoons brigade types in but they were not a problem.
A pavement hoarding at the entrance announced three permanent guests, London Pride, Dark Star American Pale Ale and Oakleaf India Pale Ale (shame about the London Pride).
On the bar there are two sets of five hand pumps that also included the two GK beers, Directors, Whale Ale Ruby Moby, Long Man Copper Hop, Triple fff I Can't Remember and Caledonian Harpoon The Long Thaw. I went for the Copper Hop and the Oakleaf India Pale Ale both of which were in good nick although the Copper Hop had a slight haze. I returned later for a mixed grill and a couple of pints of Triple fff I Can't Remember which all went down a treat.
The better beer choice in this one means it outscores the Three Fishes in my book.

Situated almost opposite its sister Spoons, the Sir Timothy is the normal JDW brand so no music inside. Brighter and more airy than the Three Fishes with a central skylight and some stylised porthole windows to the rear. Five guests over 10 pumps, my Dorking was decent though probably towards the fag-end of the barrel – I suspect 30 minutes earlier it would have been spot-on. Service a little bit slow. Not quite as good as the one over the road but decent enough.

The Sir Timothy Shelley is a long and thin Wetherspoons pub with the usual cheap drink and food. Halfway down the pub to the right is a separate room that is under a skylight. Unsurprisingly there is a plasma screen, but it was showing muted football focus on the red button rather than rolling news.
I counted ten hand pumps in amongst the standard draught and the service was reasonably good, although it wasn’t as busy in here as the other Spoon’s pub across the road.

There are better places to drink in the immediate area.

A long and narrow pub that had a fair selection but seemed very dim and lacked any atmosphere.It was fairly packed on my visit with a group sitting at the front who had obviously been on an all day session.Still at these prices I don't blame them.

Narrow Wetherspoons pub on Worthing's main High Street. Ten hand pumps dispensed a mix of 'Spoons regulars and guest ales. I had a good pint of Burton Bridge Bitter (£2.05) in here before settling down to watch the Holland vs. Slovakia world Cup match which was being shown on two screens towards the back of the pub.
The room is decorated in quite a modern fashion, dissimilar to many of the standard Wetherspoons interiors seen nationwide. There were a number of modern art style prints on the walls, and some of the windows were made to look like ships port-holes. Additionally, there was a very nice sky-lit side room which had a bit of a conservatory feel to it and gave the rest of the pub some much needed light. The place was all but empty at 4pm on a sunny Monday afternoon with many more drinkers choosing the other Wetherspoons pub on the opposite side of the road, but my first impressions were that this was the nicer of the two.
