Jon B left this review about The Percy Shaw (JD Wetherspoon)

the real ale selection here has fallen away badly with the guests today from Moorhouses, Wychwood, Greene King and Adnams. it also lacks the friendly down to earth charm of the Lloyds up the road. We are very much in the territory of family friendly cafe bar rather than pub here. the views if you bag a window seat are, however, lovely.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Percy Shaw (JD Wetherspoon)

The main feature in here was the large windows along the right hand side, giving a panoramic view. A collection of wooden bobbins made a nice display near the entrance, which made a decent tribute to the once thriving textile industry. The bar was positioned along the left hand side and had an acrylic white counter and the bar front was oak lathes fixed vertically along the front. Ten pumps along the bar, with three out of action "cleaning in progress". So the remaining choice wasn't all that, so settled on a Bridgeside Holy Cow.

This one is not a typical Spoons as it is quite small and is part of a modern complex that includes Halifax's cinema there being film related events listed in the bar. As noted below it's an open plan rectangular room which was busy on a Wednesday evening.
The clientele were much younger than usual with what looked like after work drinkers and couples on the way to see a film. There was no sign of any daytime brigade despite the guest ciders being cheaply priced at £2.65.
I managed to get a seat by the window and spent some time here including having a meal while watching the traffic far below.
The bar has ten hand pumps which had the IPA version of the JDW Trio Of Doom, two ciders, Caledonian Thunder Trail, Hawkshead Brodie's Promise, Saltaire Kardinal, Wadworth Fort Session IPA and Exmoor Gold. I went for the Kardinal (£2.35) which was reasonable.
This isn't one of the better JDWs but it's not a complete disaster.
