The Bull and Stirrup is a Wetherspoons with a bar that faces high tables in the right rear corner and multiple seating areas in the rambling left-hand side. I counted ten hand pumps in amongst the standard and premium keg products. These were drawing Ruddles, Greene King’s Abbot Ale, Sharp’s Doom Bar (x2), Westwood’s Cheshire Cat and Hafod Brewery’s Powerhaus alongside Cockeyed Brewery’s Monkey Mango cider and Weston’s Rosie’s Pig and Old Rosie ciders. The tenth handpump was unused. The usual JDW food menu is in operation.
There is no music or live sports, as per the norm for this pub co. I didn’t spot any televisions, but I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some rolling news going on somewhere. Outside is a seating area, but it was very wet during my visit so I didn’t investigate.

Visited on Saturday evening and, like most Wetherspoon pubs, it was rather busy. Two banks of six hand pulls at the bar, one bank had the guest ales on and the other had their usual offerings plus ciders. We managed to find a free table. Beer selection was OK, I went for the Draught Burton Ale by Burton Bridge and my drinking accomplice had Quagmire by Big Bog. From memory the real ales were £2.49 a pint and in decent nick.

Worth a bit of a nosey for the interior as it is different to the usual Spoons barns.

a meandering maze of a Wetherspoons which was full to bursting this afternoon. too unsociable to be a good pub but to be fair they have done a good job here and there is a good range of real ale. the bar area feels like a greasy spoon and was full of idiots but there are thankfully lots of cosy corners to hide away.
