This large Wetherspoons/Lloyds pub is secreted away in a modern leisure development, surrounded by sundry restaurants etc. The main bar is a bit of a cavernous space, but there are a couple of separate side areas and a surprisingly-tasteful and comfortable 'library' area. The beers at time of visit were rather disappointing however, with a small selection of the usual national brands and nothing local at all.

This is by far the largest of the Durham JDWs but sadly it's a Lloyds and even before 11:00 on a Saturday morning there was background music. It also suffers from the triple Curse of Sky Sports, BT Sports and Racing UK. Happily in the morning none of this rubbish was on just the usual subtitled news.
As noted below it's a large open plan single storey room in the middle of a modern leisure complex. The Lloyds Disaster area is on the right of the bar with all the usual trappings. On this visit alcohol was only served from 11:00 due to a protest by some groups of ultra right wing fruitcakes nearby banging on about something or other.
The beer choice from the ten hand pumps was virtually non existent with two ciders, the IPA version of the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled, Shepherd Neame Redpoint Disco Macaw and the wonderful GK Rocking Rudolph. I went for the Black Dragon cider which was reasonably priced but I forgot to note what it was.
This place is probably only worth visiting for an early drink and / or breakfast. I wouldn't return, the smaller Spoons nearer the station is miles better.

Quite a large place but sadly not a great choice of ale when I visited. Far better than the other outlets in the complex and given the other reviews I would return to hopefully find a better ale selection.
