This is a purpose built pub rather than a conversion of anything so anyone who doesn't like it can pin the blame fairly and squarely on JDW!
It's a large open plan rectangular room with the bar area at the front and eating area further back which also leads to what looked like a paved balcony. Overall the fixtures and fittings are better than in older outlets. The Easter school holidays must have started as there were several unsupervised brats using the pub as a playground.
The bar has ten hand pumps which had three available soon, The JDW Trio Of Doom with Ruddles doubled up, Salopian Lemon Dream doubled up and Wolf Ale. I went for the Lemon Dream (£2.15 festival price?) which was in good nick. It's not a bad Spoons but was let down by an average beer choice and the rampaging kids.

This review is from St George’s Day 2016 when I visited Needham Market for a football game.

This was my first visit to this fairly newly built Wetherspoon’s which is just a short walk up from the centre of ‘Stow. I arrived late lunchtime on a Saturday and it was half busy with the majority of people eating. Typical Wetherspoon’s in that when it’s busy they only have 2 members of staff serving both diners and drinkers (like me), it took almost 10 minutes just to order a drink!

A decent selection of ales on but I only had eyes for Nethergate Breweries Azanewt which was very drinkable and of course cheap being ‘spoons prices.

Upstairs toilets and very modern décor, the building has a barn feel to it with a conservatory type building to the rear where the garden is. A decent ‘spoons, will I ever return who knows maybe I will on my next visit to ‘Stow.

A fairly new Wetherspoon's that has been open for about a year.It's a plain pub but there were some good real ales on all in good order.
