This JDW is named after an eminent local artist whose fame has completely passed me by. As noted below it's a rectangular open room on the ground floor of a modern building. The furnishings are fairly typical and it did seem rather dark inside. It was fairly quiet early on a Thursday afternoon.
There are two sets of five hand pumps which had one available soon, a cider from the festival over a month ago, a house beer, The JDW Trio Of Doom with Doom Bore doubled, Hawkshead Windermere Pale doubled and Kelham Island Rock Me Amadeus Lager. I went for the Windermere Pale (£2.29) which was in reasonably good nick.
It's not a bad Spoons.

A traditional Wetherspoons box. 10 handpumps with a decent selection today. Slightly ruined by whinging kids this afternoon. But then again, if Wetherspoons suddenly closed their pubs we'd all be crying to get em back though wouldn't we?

Fairly standard, modern build JDW close to the main hospitals which is why I was here as I was playing taxi driver. Some decent art work around the walls and a good selection of the JDW Xmas ales on the handpumps. Service was efficient and friendly and my coffee was very good as always. Shame I couldn't have a beer, but maybe next time.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ford Madox Brown (JD Wetherspoon)

Unremarkable 'spoons housed in a modern building. Visited quite late in the evening, feeling slightly apprehensive as busy places such as this can get a bit uncivilised, but found a calm and pleasant atmosphere. A good selection of common and rarer beers from the 10 handpumps, all well priced (mostly £2.10).

Nestling between the Curry Mile and the University buildings,the pub is in a prime position to do a decent trade. On a bit of a roll with the Wetherspoons service,twice in a week have been serves pretty sharp,and had a couple of OK pints of Milky Way(6.0abv)from the Black Hole Brewery.
