Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Regent (JD Wetherspoon)

Wetherspoon's in a former cinema at a busy interstection in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

As I've come to expect from a 'spoon's, it was fairly busy on a Saturday afternoon with a real mix of people. There were elderly people, families with kids, young scantily clad girls who didn't look old enough to drink and even a couple of young cyclists who came in with their bikes!

There is a comfortable front room, which I assume used the be the cinema foyer and a much more spacious rear room with a high ceiling, that contains the bar at the rear. I assume this was the auditorium. TVs were showing the latest news.

The usual triumvirate of Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best & Sharp's Doom Bar were stocked, along with 2 guest beers. These were Titanic White Star & Critters Sleepy Badger. Unusually for a Wetherspoon's, the real cider was Broadoak Moonshine, which I gladly ordered.

A respectable Spoons this one with friendly staff and good service on our visit. You enter the pub via a corner door entrance, where you encounter some seating in this lobby area. There is a choice of two entrances into the main room, or what was once the main screen of the Cinema. The bar was positioned along the facing back wall as you enter. Above the bar is a large 3D sign reading the Regent which was illuminated with some purple and blue lighting. The bar front had an illuminated black and amber grill and large artisan lampshades hung down over the booth seating, which ran along the side walls.
Two banks of five handpumps, with a choice of nine ales and one cider, we went for the Lincoln Green Tuck and Marion, there was also a beer from Falstaff Brewery which looked worth considering.

As you would expect from the name this is a cinema conversion but not one of their more impressive ones. The majority of the room has a false ceiling which hides most of the original structure. The furnishings are a bit better than average. It wasn't that busy on my late Saturday afternoon visit.
The two sets of five hand pumps had two available soon, the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled, Everard's Ascalon and Jenning's Snecklifter. I went for the Snecklifter (£2.09) which was in fine nick and had another after ordering some food which was OK.
I wasn't impressed with this one although the food and service were fine. It was let down by a pathetic beer choice.
