E TA left this review about The King Of Wessex (JD Wetherspoon)

Not JDW’s best, as mentioned below.  The customers in seemed to be Bath’s less prosperous and healthy, indeed it felt a bit like the waiting room for a soup kitchen, and included a family group of overweight savages stuffing their slime burgers into their mouths with their hands, ketchup and all – on reflection it’s probably not a bad thing, as they didn’t look like could be trusted with cutlery.  That, with the firepit in the middle of the bar, made it feel very Mesolithic.   The staff were very offhand and didn’t engage at all other than in an impatient, churlish manner.  On the plus side there was a sign asking that all children be removed from the bar by 9pm, though whether those at whom it was aimed could read it is debatable.  Ales on were Doombar, Abbott and Ruddles, the latter at 99p per pint, plus Burton’s Stairway to Heaven.  Ciders on were Rosie’s Pig and Black Rat.  I shan’t be rushing back.

a below-average Spoons, perhaps a little more tranquil than some but a very disappointing range of beers with only one or two above the standard group. Not one of their best by any means.

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.
