Actually it advertises itself as a "Modern British Pub". Unfortunately a true boast, and accurate I guess as there are now loads of these madeover modern pubs, but not necessarily a good thing as I don't reckon you can beat a traditional British pub. Tradition trumps modernity as far as pubs go - in my opinion anyway.

There are no real ales of course, but a handful of keg fonts on the counter to the left offer what is probably described as "craft" beer. A half of Beavertown Neck Oil was £3. You won't get much pub grub in here either; I did see "beer-battered North Sea haddock, triple-cooked chips, tartare sauce, mushy peas" advertised though.

The room is J-shaped, with the area at the back on the right having all tables laid for diners. As you might expect there's exposed brickwork all over the place; ugly metal ducting covering the ceiling; and some dark greeny-blue paintwork. The drinking area has a mix of tall tables/tall stools and normal tables and chairs. There are no surprises here. It was doing a busy trade when I dropped in at around 6.45 PM on a Wednesday, so they must be doing something right. Not really my sort of place though.

Just popped in to get a quick look. Brighter than when it was Moon Under Water. Couldn't see any real ale taps. Says on the outside "Proper British Pub" I think I got the words correct.

Quite a small spoons with a fairly formulaic layout as you would expect. Eight handpumps with five beers on offer, Doom Bar, Abbot, Sneck Lifter, Ascot 5/4 Favourite and Oakham Citra which was to be fair rather good.Would I choose to return? No, but a rare example of a Spoons I rate higher than Aqualung (but only just).
