As other have said, this has a proper pub look and feel to it. Always something to drink in Wetherspoon these days, certainly since the introduction of ’craft’ beers. Something that never changes in Spoons’ is the quality of the staff. Here they are as bad as you would expect. All of them using the Wetherspoon motto, ’Who’s next?’ Not a bad pub in the evening but if you come during the day make sure you’re wearing your grey jogging trousers.

Visited 4/12-2011. Being a Wetherspoon it´s deco is as they are, this pub was clean and queit. we went for food and a beer. Menu is as we know the food at JDW, they didn´t have that huge a range of beers on cask, but the ones we had was in good condition.

Have popped in here on occasion most recently in early ’12 for the steak night. For a spoons it is fairly unusual in that it actually resembles a pub as opposed to some kind of former white goods show room or bank. A former hotel, so fairly trad oak beams, old carpets, horse brass etc on show. Tuesday night on last visit so fairly quiet - some local nut job pissed out of his tree rabbiting away to himself - one of the perils of a spoons. Beer selection was moderate for a spoons, maybe 6 real ales, 3 bog standards and 3 guests, but fair play to the server (who I think was the manageress) she let us have a guest beer with our steaks (should have been Ruddles!). So good marks for service here. If you happen to be on a pub crawl in Aylesbury - no harm in popping in but otherwise don’t make the effort !

Well, praise for ’Wetherspoons’ for supporting the great course of Real Ale for Camra [Campaign for real ale] prices are outstanding for real ale drinkers, i.e. av £1.99 a pint!! so well done, also the food is great value and plenty of seating around the pub.

One of two Wetherspoon pubs in Aylesbury. The Bell stands at the bottom of the square in Aylesbury. It’s a good location but the pub felt a bit soulless. It seems to be a converted hotel with a large, dark wood panelled reception room at the front – quite empty apart from a few diners - and the bar through the back down a low corridor, possibly in an old coach house or courtyard. It was difficult to work out. The choice of beers was fairly limited with Colley’s Dog (from Tring) and Ruddles being the best on offer. We ate dinner there and it did the trick (burger, chips and a pint for £5.10) but the food wasn’t particularly great and Per’s steak was poorly cooked. Service was patchy. The female bar person was OK but her colleague seemed clueless. After passing me my drink he wandered off to do other things behind the bar and I was left standing waiting to pay.
