This is a pretty big Spoons, in the old style with the dark blue and gold signage and lots of dark varnished wood inside. Three banks of hand pumps at the bar. Two of the banks have six pumps and these are at each end of the bar. In the centre is a bank of three, offering the usual Spoons trio.

The right hand bank had the Spoons trio duplicated, plus Deuchars IPA, Polar Eclipse by Beartown and DB Point Blanc. The left hand bank has two ciders (one was a Thatchers 6%, the other a Rhubarb one) and four guest ales not duplicated from the other banks.

Full of a mix of drinkers and diners at around 11am today (Friday). I was surprised how full it was really. I've been in the afternoon before now and it has been quieter!

Fairly nice old building in itself, possibly a bit tired on the inside, but good to see a decent real ale selection. My Polar Eclipse was a rather pleasant stout and only set me back £1.95 or £1.99.

As noted below this JDW is based in what must be the largest Post Office building I've ever seen. It's a very wide room with some alcoves along the front windows and raised areas to the far right and left. The fixtures and fittings are fairly typical. Most of the trade on my Tuesday afternoon visit seemed to be drinkers.
The bar has two sets of six hand pumps and one of three, the three being wasted with the JDW Trio Of Doom duplicating the appearance on the other two sets. The remaining nine had two unused, two available soon, Settle Mainline Bitter, Beartown Bear Faced & Peach Melbear, Oakham JHB and Coach House Gunpowder Mild. I went for the Mainline Bitter and the Peach Melbear which were both £1.95 and there aren't that many Spoons around now with a standard guest price less than £2.00. Both were in good nick although the Peach one tasted predominately of tinned peaches.
Considering the fifteen hand pumps the beer choice was only average but other than that it seemed OK.

By far the best pub,real ale wise, in Blackburn town centre. Actually its probably the best pub. A large pub as described below and the best bet in Blackburn town centre to be honest.
