Two building joined as one ,with the righthand a former small theatre but looking like a chapel.There is a balcony,roped off on my visit,and a fine vaulted roof in timber.Close to the bar are lots of high tables,then some dining tables before a small rise to a back snug with a woodburner and a rear dining area in a couple of sections with what looked like table service.It's all quite upmarket for a 'spoons,and there is a real beer garden.
There are 2 banks of 6 handpumps but Doom Bar,GK IPA and Abbott are doubled up,three guests were "available soon" aaaaagh,leaving a choice of a festival International IPA,Wychwood Hobgoblin,Rocket Vostok Stout and a superb Oakham Velvet Claws which saved the trip and great value at £2.29.
With two of the "available soon" guests also from Oakham,it is possible ale selection here may well justify including this on a trip around town.

Large Spoons with the bar on the right as you come in. Usual selection of beers. The toilets are not upstairs for once.

This new Spoons is quite obviously two buildings joined together so the obvious assumption is that the building away from the bar is the hotel but this is not the case. The hotel is a brand new building at the rear that looks like a wooden box from the pub.
The right building is the main bar area with the servery along the right side a basic patio at the front and a more decorative one at the back. This room is fairly typical for a newer Spoons but there are a couple of fancy chandeliers above the bar. Some steps or a lift lead up to the other building which is a nice carpeted wood panelled area. There was a smell of paint and some of the doors looked unfinished so it would seem that some work is still going on.
Although the bar has twelve hand pumps the choice was limited with the IPA version of the Trio Of Doom and a cider doubled up, one available soon, Butcombe Bitter, Hawkshead Cumbrian 5 Hop and a festival beer. I went for the 5 Hop which was in good nick but was labelled as £2.49 when it should have been £2.79. Like most new Spoons the food club prices are dearer than normal. The guest ciders here are cheap at £2.65.
This isn't a bad Spoons but the beer choice let it down.
