Denied entry at 11.29pm by door security despite website hours and hours displayed on front door saying midnight close. This after a deliberate and lengthy journey to visit. Treated like a mug with no proper explanation as to why but mumbles that was too late for me to finish a drink and staff wanted to get home.

Quick bus change evening visit. Only a handful of customers in and signs everywhere saying front doors will be open all day (physically) until 1st October in all 'Spoon's houses. Could not face beer range so a quick Black Dragon cider sufficed.
