As has been noted, this is a fairly standard old school Spoons operation. At the bar, two banks of six hand pulls with one bank dedicated to guest ales (priced at £2.49 a pint / £1.25 a half) and the other bank offering three ciders from Snails Bank in addition to the Spoons trio of Abbot Ale, Ruddles and Doom Bar. Mainly bitters and golden ales on the guest line-up but my Beartown Bruins Ruin was very nice.

Fairly busy just before 11:30am today and soon started to fill up with the lunch time mob. Plenty of babies and toddlers in, including one relentless screamer.

Toilets are upstairs, as is fairly standard.

To cut to the chase, this is an old skool Spoons that has had a refurb. A kind of L-shape interior with some neutral paint on the walls and a few of the old varnish pillars remaining. Absolutely rammed on our Saturday evening visit though this seems to be the default for Chester, we struggled to find a table and had to wait a few minutes. Went for a Titanic Cappuccino Stout which was fine (NBSS 3). Ate here and to be fair to the staff they kept on top of everything and the Wetherchef pinged us our grub within 20 minutes. Overall, a fair Spoons.

a bog standard town Wetherspoons at one end of Chester's busiest drag. it has been done nicely enough inside though it is, as I said, bog standard. beer choice was garbage with just a couple of vaguely interesting guests which were themselves not interesting enough to take note of. Since you're in Chester it isn't really worth spending too long here.
