My first visit to this pub. I had read a review by an anonymous reporter in the local media that was rather uncomplimentary about this pub but it appeared that he just wanted to tell the world that it did not have a car park and that he could not understand why a pub should have a train departure screen inside it even though it is adjacent to a busy railway station. This is a very nice Spoons.
