04/01/12 Usual Spoons establishment. Good selection of brews on the bar and usually kept very well. I agree with Alan that the place seems a little un-welcoming, mainly due to the fact that it has become the haunt of Beestons less than fussy alcohol drinkers, who congregate in the seats near to the main corner door swilling discount lager and john Smiths. Don't let this put you off too much, I have never had any problems and the beer is well worth the short walk through the fog of BO and stale beer.

03/03/14 Visited for a pint and some food before moving on to Beestons Comedy Club. Nothing much has changed but it is wearing well. Good selection of beer and great food served quickly, which is why we went. Clientell were mostly middle aged blokes who all seemed to be having a great time. Upgraded from a 5 to a 7, it's better than I remember.

01/03/16 Still a good beer pub in the Spoons tradition.

16/09/17 Shockingly bad. Everything was off except John Smiths. Walked out in disgust.

Last Post just away from Beestons main high street as the name might suggest was one the local Post Office. Now under the ownership of Wetherspoons this is their only outlet in the area where there are many good real ale pubs. But even with a choice as good as Beestons I suppose price elasticity is still a key pull factor as this was very busy on my Saturday evening visit. As you enter the pub is one long oblong shaped room with the bar running half was down the left hand side of the room . The décor is one of the worst I have seen as a spoon, even though there are lots of high windows that make the pub very light and airy the entire room and celling is completely whitewashed with a huge fan pipe in the centre of the celling. I thought this was frankly Hideous. The pub is all hard wood that is the comfiest in a spoons but a small room at the back does have some carpets. There were at my count 13 hand pulls on the bar but five were the regular Greene King/Doombar crap and three were real ciders leaving just five guests consisting of Hamberton Ales Amber stallion, Everards Sunchaser (£2.35) Maxim brewery’s Maximus (£2.65) Wild Weather Go Man Go (£2.49) plus another I failed to note. I wanted the Hamberton but was told it was coming soon so opted for a Guinness as it was a red hot day and sat and had some spoons food which was how you would expect. To say the beer prices are more than regular Nottingham spoons and the stiff competition I was expecting more from this place. At least the guest beer was slightly more interesting than usual Nott’s spoons offerings but overall pretty average. It’s a run of the mill spoons for anyone wanting a cheap beer but I would always go elsewhere when in Beeston as there are so many better options around

Aqualung . left this review about The Last Post (JD Wetherspoon)

There are quite a lot of old Post Office conversions across the JDW empire and being functional undecorative buildings they tend to make rather dull outlets. This one is no exception and I caught it on a bad day as on arrival some of the staff were having to cope with the water from a flooded Gents upstairs coming through the ceiling. This had the effect of throwing the bar service into complete disarray as the staff seemed to be struggling.
Inside it's a wide shed-like rectangular room with typical fixtures and fittings. The upstairs area was closed off due to the water problems. The windows look like they are the original ones for the building.
The bar has three sets of five hand pumps with one devoted to cider and one of those available soon. The rest had three available soon, the two GK beers, Well's Bombardier, Nottingham house beer Last Post & Sooty Stout, Coach House Post Horn and Cairngorm Wild Cat. I went for the Sooty Stout (£2.35) and had time for a Post Horn (£2.50) both of which were in good nick.
The range and quality of the beer and cider largely made up for the dull building and flooding problems.
