Steve C left this review about The Sir Samuel Romilly (JD Wetherspoon)

The Sir Samuel Romilly is a large open plan Wetherspoons that was quite busy with 80% of tables taken during a recent early Monday evening visit. Standard and premium keg products are available from the bar that also supports two banks of five hand pumps for real ale and cider pouring. The usual Spoons fayre is available, I recommend the large mixed grill which was great value for money.
There is a single television that was airing muted rolling news and there was no background music. I counted at least four gaming machines, there may have been six. The service was polite and the drinks very cheap so there is no reason why I wouldn’t pop back in if I find myself in Barry again.

Nothing unusual about the building when viewed from the main street, but the side view tells a slightly different story and the is quite an odd layout inside. The bar and main seating area at the back is housed in the former market hall, but it's rather harder to work out what the front bits were previously used for (although one part was apparently a bank). Usual mix of furniture, but not particularly well lit. Reasonable selection of real ales from the two banks of five handpumps, but being too early in the day to try the Gower Power I went (hesitantly) for My Darlin' Lemontine from Glamorgan Brewing (which thankfully turned out not to be overly lemony flavoured, £2.49).

The building that this one is in has apparently had various uses including a theatre and a bank. If you enter from the main road, after climbing a short staircase there is an attractive mosaic tiled area. The side street entrance only has a few steps. Inside it's a large square room with the bar on one side and a fair amount of dark wood used. The fixtures and fittings are fairly standard.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had two available soon, two ciders, the two GK beers, Rhymney King's Ale, Glamorgan Thunderbird & Jemima's Pitchfork and Brain's Bread Of Heaven. I went for the Rhymney King's Ale (£2.49) which was in good nick.
I though this was one of the better Spoons in South Wales but Barry is more populated and affluent than the old industrial valley towns.
