This ‘spoons actually looks quite inviting from the outside with its slightly art deco exterior and period windows slightly out of keeping with all the other strange mix of architectural styles that now blight Broad Street. Sadly though, when you enter it is completely a paint by numbers old school ‘spoons and, although they try hard with several pictures of local historical dignitaries you could be anywhere in the country.
Very busy on this late Saturday lunchtime and we must have bagged the only empty table in the pub. Not a bad range of guest beers but sadly the Titanic Plum Porter had gone not long before I made it to the bar. But a very decent pint of Salopian Gold was a good substitute.
One positive of this ‘Spoons was that they were showing the Scotland Wales Six nations match on the tele’s which I could focus my attention on and away from the punters. Like most ‘Spoons all forms of human life can be found in them and one particular group of lads and lassies were providing entertainment. Spread over several tables it was clear that it was one of the lad’s birthdays and a couple of his mates were working the Wetherspoons mobile app to order several rounds of shots and we watched as several different rounds of strange coloured liquids arrived by waitress delivery at regular intervals to the protesting birthday boy.
But I was impressed how long it took for said lads to push correct tit on mobile phone before strange liquids appeared tableside. Knowing the service levels in my local ‘spoons this is something I may have to investigate.

Not a bad selection of beers here today and we chose Glamorgan Jemima's Pitchfork which was fine.

Better of the 2 Wetherspoons on Broad Street. I like this pub and always pop in when I am in the area. Standard Spoons layout with a reasonable selection of ales on including a few from the current festival. The 2 I tried were fine and at £2.19 very good value.
