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.

Recently opened Wetherspoons. Was previously the town post office. It's very average to be honest with nothing to distinguish it from many other Wetherspoons, i.e. good choice of ales, decent grub, toilets upstairs and slow service. Most people seem to use it for a couple and then move on somewhere else, which is good news for the rest of the town pubs.
