Absolutely typical town centre Spoon's. Seemed quite well-run, if rather unexceptional, but a reliable place for a pint or three.

Cheap and cheerfull as most "Spoons" pubs are. Nice enough place will use again.

This is a typical old school Spoons as described below consisting of a long low ceilinged room with typical furnishings. There seemed to be a daytime brigade contingent on a Saturday afternoon.
Although there are two banks of six hand pumps the beer choice was poor with two not on, IPA, Abbot & Doom Bore doubled up, the pathetic One Is 90 and Hobgoblin leaving just Sharp's Atlantic or Loddon's Reading Dark. I went for the Reading Dark which was in good nick. Maybe I was lucky but I didn't have any real problems with this place but thought it was a fairly average JDW.
