Quinno _ left this review about The William Morris (JD Wetherspoon)

A grim and utilitarian building houses a single storey modern Spoons. Given the area I wasn't expecting much but actually it was a pretty genteel affair inside on a Thursday afternoon. There's a pleasant seating area at the front with jumbo plate glass windows (the only natural light source). Just the one guest ale on at the bar, a decent white Horse Bitter (NBSS 3). Not bad, in context.

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

Dull, 'L'-shaped 'spoons on the edge of the Templars Square shopping centre, with no real effort made with the furniture or decor to add any interest. Nothing much doing on the two banks of duplicated handpumps either, with just Swift One from Bowman (£1.99) and Burton Bridge's Stairway to Heaven in addition to the usual trio of Ruddles, Doom Bar and Abbot.

I was certainly glad to learn that this place wasn't named after the bloke who designed wallpaper but the other one who set up the local motor vehicle company. It looks like some sort of shop conversion with the bar on the left, a raised area at the front and extending back where there are a couple of sofas and a dog leg leading to the ground level toilets. Like many shop conversions it gets darker the further away you are from the front windows.
Although the bar has two sets of five hand pumps I was told that the bottom five weren't in use after ordering the clipped Vale beer from them. This meant that the only beers available were the two GK beers, White Horse Village Idiot & Blowing Stone and North Cotswold Shagweaver. I looked to the fridges and saw a carboard box which was Wild Wood cider so had a pint of that (£3.05). The standard guest ale price here is £2.15.
I found the situation with five unused hand pumps a bit bizarre but apart from that this one didn't seem too bad so I've only knocked a point off the score.
