E TA left this review about The Gog & Magog (JD Wetherspoon)

As described below, this slightly unusual JDW is in a relatively modern building on the site of a much older pub called The Blackfriars. Ales on were Abbott, Ruddles, Doombar, Walkers White Gold and Black Gold, and Jail Ale. There is a paved Garden at the front which opens Until 9pm. The staff were functional at best, the clients mainly rowdy students and screeching, drunken women, and the beer was in very poor condition. Not worth the effort.

This is an unusual Spoons in that for a city centre one it isn't that big. There's a fairly large courtyard at the front with lots of seating. Inside it's a split level room with some steps in the middle leading up to the bar area and a stair lift for wheelchairs. It generally has a modern feel to it. On a November Wednesday evening the courtyard was almost empty and inside fairly busy.
Although there are ten hand pumps the choice was limited consisting of the JDW Trio Of Doom with Abbot and Doom Bore doubled, Dartmoor Jail Ale doubled, GK Old Speckled Hen, Hobgoblin and Burton Bridge Festival Ale. I tried the Jail Ale (£2.29) and failed to see why it should be a permanent fixture in almost all the SW England JDWs. Happily the Burton Bridge beer (£2.29) saved the day. Even so, if you exclude the Jail Ale there were no local beers on at all and two of the most boring ales from the all year guests (OSH & Hobgoblin).

A jumbo Spoons with a nautical/sailing theme and what looked like some sort of modern art take of a mainsail (I think?) on the ceiling. A colour scheme best described as ‘plum duff’. Absolutely rammed on our Saturday evening visit, wherever you stood you were in someone’s way (I wonder what the maximum official capacity is in here?). The two guest ales I was able to note at the bar were Tring Kettle Stout (below-par, possibly end-of-barrel) and a decent drop of Otter Winter Warmer. Seemed alright in here, a decent Spoons. 6.5
