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

One of those 'bigger than it looks' Wetherspoons than extends a long way back behind the narrow frontage. Very little natural light, but the place is well lit and has a light carpet which both help counteract the effect of the dark furniture. Not a very inspiring selection of seven real ales from the two banks of six handpumps, of which the far-from-local Swannay Dark Munro (£2.35) was the pick of the bunch.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Acorn Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

A long single roomed pub, with the bar area along the left mid-way and half a dozen booths along the right hand side. There was a lot of work and design put into the art deco style ceiling areas, which had illuminated shadow gaps and a small doom near the bar area. There was also a high gantry walkway at the rear of the pub, which was only accessible to staff to reach the upstairs kitchen and cellar. Two sections of ceilings were painted a jade green colour, which co-ordinated with the 1930's style glass ceiling lamps. A good choice of Oakham Brewery ales on our visit, so we went for the Oakham Mompessons Gold.

Aqualung . left this review about The Acorn Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

This old school Spoons has a very small frontage but inside is long and narrow with the bar on the left further back. Unless you are severely afflicted with koutaliaphobia you will have seen it all before. This doesn't bother me if there is a decent ale choice but my visit was in December and the Spoons Xmas guest list is about as exciting as the rubbish music that gets dragged out every year. This one has twelve hand pumps with one unused, Doom Bore then the two GK beers and Pedigree being doubled up left just four options. These were the International Hook Norton AFO, Caledonian Winter Brau, Greene King Fireside and Woodforde's Mistletoe. I ordered the Fireside thinking it was the Black Country beer but while it was being poured felt like a right wally after discovering it was a Greene King beer.
I thought both Lichfield Spoons were rather disappointing.
