Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Draft House Midsummer

Large corner bar with a fully glazed double-height area by the entrance leading to the lower-ceilinged part by the counter. The latter has industrial lighting and ventilation, and the whole place echoes cavernously (despite the background music). Plain modern furniture and limited decor, with a few extra tables outside on the terrace. Just three of six handpulls in operation, dispensing Bingham's Vanilla Stout (£3.45), Reunion Beardtongue and Mantle Dark Heart (however - as I was leaving - I found out that the other pumps were being readied to launch the 'house' MK Pale No 1 later that evening, so I imagine that more beers are usually on offer).

Like it's sister pub diagonally across the Boulevard of Broken Dreams this is another glass and steel abomination, although the staff seemed a bit more personable here. It's a Lloyds No. 1 so is open late on Friday and Saturday and has music in the evening. During the day it's rather like going for a drink in an office.
On the bar there were two sets of five pumps. One had the two GK beers, Doom Bore, London Pride and the Terrapin American brew by Everard's. The other bank of pumps had three ciders, Hook Norton Lion and a beer available soon. I went for the American Terrapin beer (£2.35) that was in good condition.
The Spoons web site says that no sports wear is allowed on Friday and Saturday after 21:00. I assume this means football shirts and the like rather than the bizarre and very bad taste clothing that golfers and snooker players wear.
