Quinno _ left this review about The Wyvern Tavern

Converted from an old Yates as that previously mega chain continues its retreat into obscurity. This is a big, oblong, open-plan sports bar with a multitude of sports TVs showing the FA Cup on my evening visit with the volume up to the max. Of note is some booth seating and psychedelic hexagonal wallpaper, alongside a couple of pool tables to the rear. Went to the bar and was gobsmacked to see six pumps with five ales from smaller breweries; Prescott Grand Prix, Brew Monster Black Widow, Northdown He-Bru, Butcombe Original and Bristol Beer Factory Beam Me Up, the latter of which was in good nick (NBSS 3.5). Two pool tables at far end. A real surprise and worth checking out if you’re in town.

At first glance just another shop conversion, but on entering there is actually some architecture, with columns, pillars and plasterwork. A long bar down one side is faced by a range of seating areas, with an upstairs also but not in use at time of visit. There are a few tables on the pavement outside. Draught beers included two from Electric Bear Brewing and Hobgoblin, as well as ciders being available, while the cheery barman volunteered the CAMRA discount. I might have been lucky, and it was a fairly quiet time, but all in all a pleasant drinking experience showing what good management and enthusiastic staff can do.

Wetherspoons-like, but with background music & less beer choice, though there is local beer and quality is better than at the Savoy.
