Bucking Fastard left this review about The Sweyn Forkbeard (JD Wetherspoon)

Housed in a modern building,this is a large open plan,split on two levels and undistinguished 'spoons with not much character.The outside space was proving popular with some village idiots. Only 3 real ales with regulars Doom Bar and GK Abbott Ale and a guest Green Jack Jackalope Golden Best.That may seem like a limited range,but with some many other pubs nearby serving even less (or no) real ale be careful what you wish for before turning around and walking out.Not sure why this is CAMRA branch POTY.

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

This 'spoons is housed in a building of an uncertain age close by, but not overlooking the River Trent. The slightly split-level, L-shaped bar is quite dark away from the notably large front and side windows, but the side patio beer garden can catch the sun during most of the day. Disappointingly, just Ruddles and Doom Bar (£1.99) available from the two banks of handpumps.

Old Boots left this review about The Sweyn Forkbeard (JD Wetherspoon)

Situated in a fork in the road on the edge of the town centre it looks like a shop conversion with big clear windows and doors on both street faces. The counter is down one side with the usual collection, two banks of five pulls with all beers doubled up, t-bars etc in between. Beer average in spite of multiple GBG entries. Service above average however, punters as expected for a market town 'spoons. Local interest photo decor.
