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

Standard-issue 'spoons in a parade of shops. Usual dark interior with a relatively low ceiling, and quite dimly lit too. Just a few seats out front, but there is a rear patio area. Fair selection of real ales from two banks of five handpumps, with several local offerings including my pint of Salopian Dead Drop (£2.35). Only real quibble, though, was unusually slow food delivery - possibly just caught it on a bad day?

Surburban Wetherspoons attracting old time drinkers with cheap beer, near Fox & Goose island. Not much going on, very standard fit out inside.

My beer was not of the best quality, but there are a number of real ale pumps in use.

Aqualung . left this review about The Hornet (JD Wetherspoon)

Named after an old car rather than an insect this is a fairly standard suburban Spoons. It's a square room with a low ceiling and fairly typical furnishings. It was fairly quiet when I arrived here on a Tuesday just before midday.
The beer choice was as mundane as the venue with the IPA variant of the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled up, a cider, Banks's Alpha 5 Pale, Moorhouse Blond Witch and Hobgoblin. I went for the Blond Witch (£2.19) and it was in first class condition.
The beer quality on the day notches the score up of a fairly average Spoons.
