Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Swan & Angel (JD Wetherspoon)

Elongated 'spoons, and thus offering a much larger capacity than the narrow frontage suggests. All fairly routine inside, and just a cramped 'L-shaped patio out back. Six real ales - thankfully including Straw Dog and Sirius Dog Star (£1.99) from Wolf Brewery - and a cider from the two banks of five handpumps.

A newish 'Spoons' in a modernised building, so in good condition throughout with tasteful, if unexceptional, décor and furnishings. The one large room extends past the side bar to a glazed area with a small patio beyond. The beer range included examples from as far afield as the Isle of Wight and Newcastle but nothing more local except Adnams. Marginally better than average.

This had been open for exactly a month when I arrived. It's a shop conversion consisting of a long narrow open plan room with the bar on the left about half way down. There are book shelves either side as you enter and there is a small enclosed patio at the rear. It has something of an old school Spoons feel about it but the fixtures and fittings are better than the 1990s ones. The kitchen is upstairs so the food serving area is small with lifts for the food and somewhere to keep it warm. Like other newer Spoons they do pizzas here.
The bar has two banks of six hand pumps which had one unused, the JDW Trio Of Doom, Adnam's Broadside, Peerless Red Rocks doubled up, Dartmoor Jail Ale, Milestone Aegir, Hambleton Stallion Amber, Wild Weather Go Man Go and Maxim Maximus. I tried the Red Rocks (£2.49), Go Man Go (£2.65) and Aegir (£2.65). The Go Man Go was not too clear but the other two were excellent.
This one certainly had a better beer choice than some I've been to lately. I thought it was a decent Spoons.
