I obviously called at the wrong time as not only was the place surrounded by scaffolding but there was no ale on at all. There was a bank of handpumps badged up but not in operation. I settled for a Shipyard which was the same as it always is! I'll try again another time!

Fairly nondescript Spoon's, despite being in a classic 1930's Moderne building. The bar area downstairs is impressive enough but curiously lacking in character, while the dining area up a few steps is tedious. The upstairs bar is more publike and a little pleasanter. Beerwise it only seems to have a couple of guests alongside the usual stuff, however I must admit the Bedlam Porter was in excellent condition and very drinkable, while the barman checked if I would like a sample "if I hadn't had it before" which was no doubt considerate to the usual clientele.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Bright Helm (JD Wetherspoon)

Once through the doors, the main bar faces you, which had a black granite counter top and a timber front. The main wall on the left hand side was painted in red, which lead to the upstairs bar. Up a few steps to the right lead you to the main corner lounge area. Two sets of five handpumps, with all the beer choices you don't want. A quick half of Evan Evans Brewery St Davids Ale, was about the best choice.
