This Spoons is unusual as initially it looks like an old coaching inn but as noted below that's a mirage as it's a former post office dating fron 1914. Inside the truth dawns since apart from the sorting office beams being wooden instead of iron it has the same old layout as all the other JDW former post offices. The low ceilinged front section includes a room off to the right then behind this is the barn like former sorting office with the bar on the right.
This doesn't stop it being a good Spoons as it had the best beer choice I've seen for some time with one available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom with Abbot doubled, Abbot Reserve, Orkney Red Macgregor, Moorhouse First Cut & Pendle Witches Brew, Slater's Top Totty, Beartown Kodak Gold and Dunscar Black IPA. I went for the Abbot Reserve (£2.09) which was in good nick.
Despite the sorting office barn I thought this was a good Spoons.

An impressive looking Wethers from the outside. Inside is fairly standard Wethers and it is quite nice. Its mainly open plan with various areas to sit. 12 handpumps on the bar and a quite decent selection on this visit.

Former purpose built Post Office and Grade 2 listed building that is situated on the main pedestrianised shopping street.The pub has a very attractive facade and a bright and large open planned interior.There was a good varied range of cask beers on show,one of which, the Moorhouse's Black Panther prooved to be a was a winner.It made a pleasant change to have three friendly and efficient bar persons on hand who were doing a fine job.This year the pub was voted by CAMRA to be the best in North Cheshire, after finishing runner up in 2011.Definitely one of the better JDW pubs and is worth a visit
