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

Big, busy 'spoons, usually with plenty of choice from the two banks of five handpumps ranged along the lengthy bar, but with a reduced Covid-era range on this visit. I wasn't going to start the day with a 7.0% Abominable Snowman from Lymestone, so the Print Works Helvetica (£1.99) proved a decent alternative to the usual trio of Ruddles, Doom Bar and Abbot. Not sure about staying in the hotel rooms above, though, as it seems pretty noisy when I have stopped by in the evening.

A Wetherspoons hotel,but with a very standard interior and not that huge.The plastic screens around the bar make it feel cramped and although it was popular with folk getting food,the pub itself is rather anonymous.The ale selection was doubled up on both sets of handpumps meaning on my trip regulars in GK Ruddles Best,Abbot and Doom Bar with just two guests Lymestone Abdominal Stoneman and Print Work Helvetica (NBSS 3).
Functional but there are far better ale outlets very close by.

Large and usually busy Wetherspoons in the original Abbey National building, in one long room with the hotel part to one side. Pretty reliable to find a good selection of guest ales on and condition is usually fine. Even the food portions are up to spec. It won't win many prizes but it does what it says on the tin.
