2 hour evening visit on opening night, until midnight close. The place was well staffed and the bar counter by me was wiped down 3 times in 2 hours! Old old JDW problem of leaving pumpclips showing when beers had run out so we generously turned them round, which seemed to bemuse the staff. Will be a popular Wetherspoon's even at top price 'Spoon's real ale prices. Strangely for a midnight close pub the security staff seemed to expect everybody to be out by midnight despite drinks being served just before this!!!!

Opening morning and much quieter than I expected. I used the first of my current batch of 50p vouchers.
