Late-afternoon and fairly quiet.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Burton Bridge - Burton Porter4.50GoodA decent Porter without being special.
Wadworth - Dungarvan Copper Coast Irish Red Ale4.30PoorTypical Irish Red Ale. I tolerated this when I drank the authentic version from a bottle in Ireland. But it just tastes sticky and sweet when in Burton via Devizes.

The pub is found in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, DE14 1JE.

In the High Street, the name of this pub recalls the first Lord Burton, Michael Arthur Bass, a member of the famous brewing family, which had its headquarters in Burton. Until the mid 1990s, the site of this pub was home to a branch of Woolworths. The Burton branch opened in 1923, when Woolworths leased 154 High Street from Pearson's the tailor. It proved so popular that the firm took over number 155 the following year. Became a Wetherspoon's pub in 1997. A very spacious venue with 12 handpumps on the counter in 2 banks, each of 6.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 15 different beers and tried 4 of them.
