Both my visits since 2011 have found no change, sadly it’s still chaotic service, uncleared tables, bad beer and some shoddy parts of the interior. Timbo needs to get a grip on this one.

November 2011
Two level ’Spoons housed in an attractive old building by the river. The interior décor is a slightly higher standard than the average JDW, what with the ornate leaded windows and attractive fireplaces, however some parts of it need tlc as it’s getting scruffy. At the bar, service was glacially slow (the queuing system didn’t help) and a load of the ales were off. When mine finally came it was a Thornbridge Brother Rabbit which in fairness was extremely good, however my companions Theakston XB was appalling. I won’t be making a beeline for this one next time given what else the city has to offer. Rated 4

I didn't see any glitter balls or spot lamps dangling from the ceiling, or any DJ decks. So in my estimation this has turned back into a regular Spoons. The building this Spoons is housed in is quite impressive from the outside. The interior has a central gallery staircase, with the first floor sweeping around the central void. I especially liked the sand stone window openings, with William Morris design stained glass, maybe installed in the early 1900s, when this was the County Hotel. The main bar was modern in style with a Perspex marble design front, plus a large wall clock up high behind the bar.
Nine handpumps with only seven on, some of which were repeated. The selection of ales was pretty poor, so I settled on an International ale, Arcadia Session ale, which was good.

This one had been more than well described below. The burning issue for me is whether it is still a Lloyds No 1. I could see no obvious signs but the recently updated What Pub entry and the older JDW directory say it is. I asked one of the barmaids but she didn't even know what a Lloyds was!
There were quite a few in on my Wednesday afternoon visit but it's such a big place there were plenty of seats. There are now ten hand pumps which had four available soon, GK IPA & Abbot, Box Golden Bolt (which may have been off) and three festival beers. The four available soon were all festival ales which is pretty poor considering it ended a few days earlier. I went for the bottled Green Devil instead.
I thought this was a pretty poor Spoons. It needs extra or more effective staff and to be fair probably extra staff.
