Quinno _ left this review about The Central Hotel (JD Wetherspoon)

Impressive old red brick building, hosting an old school and slightly shabby Spoons-by-numbers in the ‘Edwardian brown’ décor beloved of older JDWs. Two guest ales; Purple Moose Dark and Rudgate Valkyrie and sadly both were unfinishable (NBSS 1.5 x2). Service was at least pleasant, a shame that the beer was well-below acceptable; it’s hardly likely to tempt the keg-drinking locals. A mystery how this made the Good Beer Guide - are the local CAMRA branch that desperate to make up their numbers? 4.5

Beer wise, this is by far your best bet in Shotton. Next to Shotton high level train station (Bidston/Wrexham line) and up the road from Shotton low level (Chester/Holyhead) station. A bit Wethers-by-numbers, including climb to toilets, this open plan pub isn't the worst. That said, it ain't great either but as its by the station and trains are hourly at best then its fine instead of waiting on the platforms. As noted, it doesn't have the largest selection of real ales for a Wethers but it beats the nearby Clwyd hands down. The hidden Castle pub nearby is a better pub if you're wanting a more traditional boozer.

Pub quiet on Tuesday afternoon. The only barman was taking a food order for two people. Took ten minutes to understand each other. I was hoping the Titanic was worth the wait! "Sorry most of them off, just Ruddles available, Hobgoblin coming on soon!"
This is quite normal at this 'spoons. Plenty of gins but never any real choice of beer. Not many options of other pubs nearby either!
