Aqualung . left this review about The Society Rooms (JD Wetherspoon)

I turned up here on a Tuesday afternoon to find it fairly quiet. The beer choice probably wasn't as good as the previous visit which seems to be par for the course in most JDWs nowadays. I went for a Beartown Kodak Gold which was rank so it was replaced with a Salopian Lemon Dream (£2.15). This was in good nick but the Kodak Gold clip wasn't turned. Later I thought I would try a Black Dragon cider which had a clip on one of the pumps. This turned out not to be on and despite my protests the clip remained on show. I haven't mentioned any other beers as for all I know they could all have been off! Score reduced from 7 to 3 for their deceit and as they also started blasting out the World Cup.

Original Review January 2015

This is a large Spoons that is a conversion of two old buildings, a Technical School and an old vicarage that later became a school.
Inside it's one big room that has an area to the left that winds round to a window overlooking the main road. It has all the usual Spoons furnishings. The bar is at the far side of the room and hosts three banks of five hand pumps on which several beers were doubled up. I noticed the usual two GK Beers, Doom Bore, Bombardier, Caledonian Great Scot, Coach House Burns Auld Sleekit, Butcombe Bitter, Wibbler's Polar Beer and Wincle Heritage.
I went for the Wincle Heritage and Coach House Burns Auld Sleekit (both £2.15) both of which were in good nick. This is a decent enough Spoons that also provided a fine large breakfast. One minus point is that the toilets are at the top of a long steep staircase, but that's not new for a Spoons.

A good looking building from the outside, but inside is a badly thought out mess. Small, half forgotten rooms and a narrow entrance area leave it looking somewhat muddled. Lots of crap on the tables and even more on the floor. So poor management as well. Not the most inventive selection of beers on the bar, but my pint was in very good nick, unlike the rest of the place.

Bucking Fastard left this review about The Society Rooms (JD Wetherspoon)

A large Victorian building,formerly a college,with very high ceilings but an internal refurb which is now looking tacky.There is a raised area to the right of the entrance,there is a non descript carpet ,few interesting wall decorations and the usual tired looking furniture.The bar at the rear of the building was understaffed although Macc punters do seem to queue for service,while the 15 handpumps had the trio of doom (GK Abbott,Ruddles Best and Doom Bar) double or treble clipped.Besides a cider that meant guests from CW Bombardier,GK Old Speckled Hen,Tiger,Butcombe Gold ,Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold and a fair Jennings Hopcommotion.
An uninspiring ale range in uninspiring surroundings,I will leave it to the all day drinkers in future.
