Another GBG 2017 choice by the local CAMRA branch and another looser.A faceless drinking barn with a sea of pine furniture ,4 fruit machines taking wedge off the unthinking and nothing of note internally in a purpose built outlet.There are two sets of 5 handpumps but on my visit the trio of doom,namely Ruddles Best,GK Abbott and Doom Bar were all doubled up ,leaving guests Maxim Maximus,Everards Sunchaser,Flying Monk Birdman (sweet rubbish,utterly rank) and one clip available soon.Now I know why folk drink lager.
It's totally corporate,one of the worst 'spoons I've ever visited and a major Avoid in future.

This is a modern Spoons which is part of an entertainment complex and is much smaller than I expected. As noted below it's a dull long room but at least the toilets are situated at the rear rather than at the end of a Stairway To Heaven. There is a small raised area at the back and one of those stove thingys in the middle.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had two available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled, Everard's Ascalon and Springfield Roaring Meg. I went for the Roaring Meg which was in good nick.
This seemed to be a reasonably run Spoons but the fact is it's a city centre JDW that is also GBG listed so a choice of just two viable ales is just not good enough.

Ten handpumps along the bar on our visit, with a dull and boring selection. Eventually decided on the Coach House Special Reserve, which was ok. A handy spot to finish or start a crawl as it is fairly close to the bus and train stations.
