Surprisingly not mad busy on our Friday eve visit at 6.30, so our service at the bar wasn't a problem, seemed to be more diners, than drinkers. This spacious and modern looking interior, did have a couple of features the first being the glass fronted cask cellar at the end of the pub and a large log burning fireplace found along the rear wall. The pub had a lot of good seating areas and if you wanted a bit of peace and quiet there was a small lounge, tucked away in the far right hand corner. Two banks of five pumps with a good few beers doubled up. We went for the Weetwood Cheshire Cat and the Moorhouses Blonde Witch at £1.99 a pint, which was an excellent price for such an affluent area.

A peculiar looking Wethers I thought and a fairly modern one inside. Not that bad, though at one point I thought I may have been auditioning for Splodgenessabounds such was the difficulty attracting staff to serve me. 10 handpulls but once the Wethers 3 were taken out of the equation it was a half decent choice of beers. Two Titanic Plum Porters and a packet of crisps please.

The Kingfisher is an original pub albeit a modern one. As such it has a car park and garden area with real grass as well as a paved patio. It's so modern that it's impossible to tell what is original and what has been tacked on by JDW. It's a large open plan room with the bar on the right and split into different areas. The most unusual feature is a visible cask cellar rather like a giant micropub one where the casks are all set up on stillage. One advantage of this is that if you see a member of staff pick up a cask and shake it to see how much is left you can tap on the window and administer a telling off. I assume they have done this as the existing cellar was inadequate and is just used to store the kegs.
It was fairly quiet on my Tuesday afternoon visit but they seemed to be short staffed. The bar has ten hand pumps which had three available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom with Ruddles doubled, Stockport 14 Arches Mild (which had gone and had to be sent back), Spitfire Gold and Woods Shropshire Lass.
I had the Spitfire Gold as a replacement for the Stockport Mild and it was in excellent condition and a much better beer than I expected.
Apart from the staffing issues and poor beer choice this seems to be a reasonable Spoons.
