Not a bad Spoons this and the breakfast was pretty good. Orkney Red McGregor, JW Lees True Faith and North Cotswold Shagweaver alongside the regulars. Happy to call in again.

Feels like a fairly new Spoons and the front of the place isn’t the usual JDW look. Long and narrow (ha ha!) with the front part cleverly split in half by a wood block partition which helped dampen noise. There’s a raised rear area which goes off at an angle. We liked the Blockbusters bar front, made up of hexagonal tiling – give us a beer please Bob! Unusual toilets, with telephone box wallpaper and red plastic urinals which is presumably a nod to the building’s previous role as a telephone exchange. Ten pumps at the bar; once the doubling-up and Spoons stagers were stripped-out we were left with three proper guest ales. My Cotswold Mild was in good nick. A decent all-rounder of a Wetherspoons.

This Spoons has been open for three years and like many of their more recent outlets is a bit different. It's set in the town's Post Office which included a sorting office and telephone exchange. There is and old red phone box at the front of the pub and the rooms upstairs that include the toilets have door knockers on them. I must admit I was tempted to return to my childhood and knock on one of the doors marked "Private" then do a runner but I seem to have finally got over doing that.
The pub consists of a long narrow room, wider at the front where the PO counter would have been. Unusually the only carpeted part is on the far left as you enter with the rest having wooden floors and tiles around the bar area. The furnishings are more mixed than most Spoons with a few comfy chairs and sofas. There is a patio along the left and a small yard by the kitchen on the right that is covered in pigeon netting.
It was the Abingdon carnival on my visit so a lot of the town was closed to traffic and one of the pubs I tried to visit had closed for the two days for a lick of paint. The carnival was only in full swing later in the day when I left so the pub may have been quieter than normal.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, London Pride, Broadside, one Available Soon, Loddon Bamboozle, Everard's Afro-Caribbean Hopsession, Hook Norton Hookey Mild and Prescott Hill Climb. I tried the Bamboozle and the Everard's one that tasted like Tiger to me. Both were a very reasonable £2.15.
I thought this was quite a good Spoons.
