Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Counting House (JD Wetherspoon)

Rather gloomy 'spoons housed in a baronial-style former bank, although there are such a range of seating / dining areas on slightly different levels (including one in the former vault), parts may also extend into recent rear extensions. However, the real ale selection from the two banks of five handpumps was pretty good, with a pair from Moorhouses, Beartown Polar Eclipse (£2.15), Clipaty Hop from Coach House plus the usual trio and a cider.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Counting House (JD Wetherspoon)

This building holds a prominent position as you walk up to it from Bridge Street and was a former Nat West Bank. The layout in this Spoons had a fairly long bar area positioned along the right hand side as you walk in, which was finished with a black granite counter and stained pine timberwork. The colour scheme was in greys and browns and a feature wallpapered wall displaying peacocks, was opposite the bar. This is a multi roomed pub with a brick build snug positioned in the centre of the pub, which used to hold the bank's vault.
Two banks of six pumps, with nothing to get excited about, choice wise, so we went for the Redemption Hopspur.

Aqualung . left this review about The Counting House (JD Wetherspoon)

As the name suggests this is a bank conversion. It's an open plan room with the bar area on the right and separated into different areas. It was quite busy on my Saturday midday visit.
Although there are twelve hand pumps the beer choice was poor. There were three available soon and the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled up leaving just three dull mainstream International festival ales from the major regional brewers. I went for the Banks's Brazilian Burton Pale (£2.05 festival price) which was in good condition.
This could be a decent Spoons if they could sort the beer out a bit better.
