Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Poste of Stone (JD Wetherspoon)

Housed in the former Post Office building, this two 'spoons is actually twice as large as it initially appears, with a second seating / dining located up a few steps at the back beyond the main bar area. Little else different to note, but it appears to be well run (with clean tables, etc.). I found eight different beers (being a mixture of usual suspects and rarer offerings) available from the two banks of five handpumps, with my Uttoxeter Final Furlongs (£2.15) being in good shape.

This town centre Wetherspooons is set in the former Post Office – a long, narrow building which has been subdivided into a couple of distinctly different areas. The lower level entrance sees you into a carpeted seating area with lots of tub chairs under some nice semi circular windows around the porch. Steps lead up to the main bar area, passing a pleasant mural on the way, where the servery can be found running along the right hand wall. The bar has a long backlit counter, broken midway down by a large pillar. Opposite there is a carpeted space with a row of high tables and stools giving way to bench and standard seating options on the left hand side. There is some partitioning of sorts in the form of unusual metal pillars, but otherwise it’s a very bland space with only a TV on the far wall showing muted live rugby to grab your attention. Steps lead up again to a rear room which is much wider than the rest of the pub and has turquoise walls and loads of standard seating in what is essentially a featureless space. For me, the pub’s highlight is the carpet, which incorporates repeated images of a postbox and postage stamp in a nice nod to the building’s former use. When a carpet is the highlight, you know you’re scraping the barrel. In my experience, ‘Spoons tend to be pretty busy up and down the country on Sunday afternoons (even now they’ve scrapped their Sunday lunches), but this place was very quiet, perhaps a reflection of the many superior pubs around town.
There are ten handpulls on the bar and these were split between three ‘Spoons regulars and four guest ales, with the final three out of action. I tried the locally brewed Lymestone Nose to the Grindstone (£2.50) which was in fairly good shape and served to me by one of the friendly bar staff team. I didn’t have very long here so I drank my pint at the bar, during which time I didn’t see a single customer order one of the ales.
I didn’t really think much of this place which looked quite promising from the outside but failed to deliver anything but a bland, corporate pub experience within (something I rarely accuse Wetherspoons of). I can only agree with Aqualung’s assessment that Stone has some excellent pubs that make visiting a national chain a bit of a waste of time.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Poste of Stone (JD Wetherspoon)

We caught this on a good day as the ale choice was decent enough. We went for the Slaters Haka and Wibblers Brewery Summertime, both were in good nick and costing £2.50 a pint.
This a long and narrow Spoons with plenty of sunlight pouring in along the left hand side bank of Georgian windows.
