Rob Hunter left this review about The Rawson Spring (Lloyds No 1)

I have been to the Rawson Spring at least twice previously, once in 2015 and again in 2017. It was on my way out last time that I noticed the entrance to the beer garden, so as it was a nice sunny day yesterday while I was in the area I decided to check it out.

Ten hand pulls at the bar (split across two banks), offering at least three dark beers and a cider in addition to a few guest pale ales and the Spoons holy trinity.

Service was efficient and pleasant (unlike on my previous trip) and I was even asked if I wanted a top up even though it clearly wasn't necessary (and quite possibly not physically possible). I had the Little Critters Coco Nutter, £2.15 for a pint (£1.08 for a half). This was a nice 6% coconut stout in decent condition and can't knock the value for money aspect.

The beer garden was bigger than expected and made for a nice sun trap. It looks like there may be an outdoor bar in the lower section too.

No sign of any TV sports at the time of my visit, nice and quiet in that respect.

This hopeless Spoons is a Lloyds No 1. As noted below it's a swimming pool conversion with a few smaller areas at the front. The hideous shed further back was totally dominated by a huge projector screen showing rubbish sport plus countless other TV screens. What it must be like when the nearby team are at home doesn't bear thinking about.
The bar has two banks of five hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, a cider, Spitfire, Daleside Monkey Wrench, Kelham Island Singing The Blues, RCH East Street Cream, Caledonian Edinburgh Castle and Bradfield Farmers Blonde. I went for the Monkey Wrench (£2.30) which was reasonable.
I'm glad to report that this is no longer GBG listed and it gets a point or two for not having any available soon, duplicates or blanks. Happily a fair number of Lloyds No 1s have been lost in the recent JDW offloading of outlets.

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

Apart from a couple of small seating areas just inside the entrance, the seating is to be found in the large rectangular bar area beyond (once a swimming pool). Unfortunately, no use has been found for the former balcony so that is just wasted space. Eight of ten handpumps in operation, with a fairly dull selection (of which, Adnams Barley Mow was the best bet). Very loud early on a Saturday night, with groups glammed-up in readiness for an evening out in the city centre.
