Real Ale Ray left this review about The Shoulder Of Mutton (JD Wetherspoon)

From the front you walk into a traditional looking Spoons, which is obviously the original part of the previous pub. It's only when you enter the rear part of the pub, where you encounter a newer and more recent build. The bar area has a large and substantial roof light above it, which lets in a lot of natural light. Three white leatherette upholstered arched booths along the opposite wall are a real haven for the late teens to amalgamate. There is also a very large patio garden at the rear, with some astro turf dotted around here and there.
The beer choice was non-descript, apart from an Ascot Ales Posh Pooch.

The Shoulder Of Mutton is a conversion of an original pub but internally other than some exposed wooden beams you would never know it. There are a couple of side areas for eating as you enter and then there's a typical large room with the bar on the right and a decent sized patio to the rear. The toilets are at the top of a hopelessly narrow staircase and the gents at least seemed wholly inadequate for a place this size.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps but the choice of ales wasn't great as one was unused, the IPA version of the JDW Trio Of Doom and Pedigree were doubled up leaving just three options. These were the JDW International Adnam's Belgian Blonde & Everard's Red plus Backyard Blonde. I went for the Everard's Red (£2.45) which was in very good nick.
It's not a bad place but let down by the beer choice. If JDW pubs in the Burton area must have Pedigree doubled up the least they could do is ditch the hated Doom Bore.
