Is a bar? Is it a pub? No it’s a spoons a like! Yep one of those places where only the absence of a unique carpet and other subtle clues tell you this isn’t a real spoons. Silent big screens with sub titles, split level, fruit machines, mix of seating tick, tick, tick, tick, but what’s this only 4 pulls among the dross! And no drinks machines or local interest photos, hello there’s a pool table and what’s more a choice of lovely Doombar or Bombardier, to be fair there was a choice of old or new Bombardier pump clips, either way a very disgusting liquid. Slightly more upmarket lunchtime punters than the nearby spoons. I suspect a return visit is not on the cards.

CAMRA pub of the season yet again. 5 real ales, 2 house and 3 guests. Usually all in really good nick. Well worth a visit.

This is one of the better Smith & Jones outlets,given the choice of real ale from six handpumps.There are even tasting notes written on a small chalk board,and the condition of my Ossett Citra was fine.The interior is split into different levels but the chain use the same designers as 'spoons,it's virtually an identikit.However the numerous screens cover sports with the volume up,so if you want a sports bar atmosphere with some real ale ,this place may work for you.National real ale brands rarely inspire me,I feel there are better pub alternatives close by.
