This JDW is set in a smallish single storey building. It was a shopping centre that was destroyed by fire so presumably is a new build. The problem I have with that theory is that the toilets are not set at the top of a whole load of stairs.
As noted below it's an open plan roughly rectangular room with fairly typical furnishings.
The bar has eight hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, Robinson's Double Hop, Adnam's New Realm IPA & another International beer from Caledonian, Kelham Island Pale Rider and Dark Star Hophead. Although this was a better choice than I've seen in scores of larger outlets I went for the festival Kung Fu cider which I hadn't tried and was from a choice of eight.
I thought this was a pretty good Spoons.

Nice place to take your aged mum, as with all spoons I've been in, beer well kept and food cheap and fills a hole. Gets busy and I was in Thursday early afternoon, the two pubs across the road must be crying into there beer at how many people were in. Weekend evenings are particularly busy and not long back a mate was turned away by the door men for having trackie pants on. Toilets spotless and one tv showing the news channel with sub titles . Atmosphere is fairly friendly ( that's why I take my aged mum in) Just wish they , like all spoons had a tesco meat counter ticketing system for getting served as the bar can go from empty to five deep in a minute. Giving it a nine as I always seem to sit at dirty tables otherwise wold be a ten

A new pub in the centre of Shaw, this oddly named pub is nicely decorated and spacious. Staff, both behind the bar and serving on the pub floor were attentive and friendly, as I would expect from any pub. The range of real ales was impressive, as was the range of other drinks. The food was truly excellent! The three of us who went chose different dishes, and we were all very happy with the quality. I do have one complaint, however, and it has nothing to do with the pub as such: the main entrance has no handrail to it, making it an obstacle to elderly trying to get up the steps to get in. Admittedly, the pub does have an entrance with disabled access, but if all that is needed for people with a walking stick is a handrail, then this facility should be installed as soon as possible. We will definitely be going again. Sort out that handrail and I'd give this pub a 9.
Edit: Since writing the above review, I have been back a couple of times. The handrail is now, indeed, in place, but the pub has gone downhill and I haven't been again for months. The last time we ate there, the food took ages to come, did not match the description on the menu (should have been mash, not chips) and was served on cold plates. The manager did make amends by paying for a round of drinks as we weren't prepared to wait another age for a replacement, but it will be a long while before we go again, if ever. There are better places out there!
