This is a fairly typical shop conversion consisting of a single square room that seems to have a ridiculous number of fruit machines making it look more like an arcade. I did try to count them but gave up. It was also suffering somewhat from some people being worse for wear after a football match.
The beer choice from the ten hand pumps rather compensated for anything else with the JDW Trio Of Doom, Otter Head & Original, Hook Norton Nerdherder IPA, Marston's One Is 90, a cider and Hunter's Full Bore. As I was having a Curry Club Vindaloo I went for the Hunter's Full Bore which according to the receipt was £3.09 (standard guest ale price here is £2.49). The Full Bore was excellent but the Vindaloo was oily and not very hot, the old and now defunct Flaming Dragon curry being miles better. Despite the food rant I thought this was a better Spoons than many visited in the SW.

Large JDW. Usual mid-period Spoons look, with three quarter length dark wood panelling and cherry red paintwork. A bit less of a barn due to some well-placed wooden dividers. Nice downlights above the bar. Toilets very high standard, even for a Spoons. Excellent selection of local ales available, our Dorset Knob was in very good shape plus beers from Hanlon and Hunters. Good barman, couldn’t stop laughing at the Dorset Knob jokes. As far as standard Spoons go, I rather liked this one.

The Richard Hopkins is a vast open plan Wetherspoons pub with a long bar on the back wall that has the usual draught suspects and ten hand pumps that were drawing a mix of guest and standard spoon’s ales. The usual cheap food and drink is available and the décor is what one would expect.
