The Calder is a large pub.
Once inside there is a narrow area to the front which has normal tables and chairs,the main room is down steps,this are is quite large and oblong shaped,the bar faces and the floor is bare boarded,there are tall tables and chairs opposite the bar and normal tables and chairs plus bench seating elsewhere,there is a slight raised area opposite the bar.
There were four real ales on,i had a drink of Acorn Barnsley Bitter which was a nice drink,the other real ales were Taylor Boltmaker,Stancill No7 and Fotheringham Best.
Food was being served and background music was playing.
I found this to be a decent enough pub to have a drink in.

This pub is much larger than you'd think from its frontage. A few tables and chairs in the windows at street level then a few steps down to the main area. This looks just like a JDW with very similar menus on all the tables. There's a few booths on a raised area to the right. Several muted TVs showing Sky News. They advertise a DJ at weekends and there's a dancefoor area with disco lights above, so I suspect it changes dramatically at night. 5 handpumps on the bar with 4 on. My pint of Naylor's Bitter was in good nick. It's worth calling in for the well kept beer, especially if you likes JDW's.

Single room Stonegate owned pub in a modern style. I thought I'd wandered into a 'spoons as the resemblance is uncanny right down to the coming soon label on one of the five pulls. There are raised areas to the front and down one side, tall tables down the middle and silent TVs. Usual tap stuff on T-bars and single founts. The ladies are upstairs but the gents on the ground floor next to a couple of machines, there's also music so not quite a 'spoons clone. Beer quality was very good as was the service. The back entrance comes out opposite the actual Wetherspoons.
