See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A large new-build Wetherspoon pub at the entrance to a cinema complex, it was refurbished in Jan 2016. There might be four or five real ales, normally the usual 'Spoons regulars but maybe something more unusual. Popular with the younger crowd, it can get very busy in the evenings. Both the food and the beers are good value for the city centre. Note that, contrary to tradition, outward facing pumpclips doesnt necessarily indicate that those beers are currently available - pumpclips arent turned round once beer sells out so there are often fewer cask beers on than it might appear, sometimes far fewer. Note that alcohol is not served until nine in the morning.
