On the northern side of the town centre and backing onto one of the main central car parking areas from which it is also accessible from, this Wetherspoon has an appealing setting in a single and large open plan room. With a large V shaped wooden roof high above the ground floor one of the first things you notice is how roomy and airy the place is, with the main seating area in front of the long bar that runs along one side. There’s a slightly raised section at the rear which gets the sun at the start of the day, and an attractive patio area to the pubs side at its front. There’s two rows of real ale pumps at the bar and artwork on the walls rather than any historical information about the area. The most notable part of the building is probably the giant air conditioning duct that hangs down from the roof and runs the full length of the pub.

Popped in on 25th June 2014 to have a look around and have a cheap ’Chicken Thingy’ as it was a Wednesday. Basic Spoons, with more staff than most. Toilets are closer to the customers than a lot of this chains pubs and I quite liked the place, clean, tidy and although some of the clientele were not as clean and tidy as the actual building it did fine by me.

Typical JDW in terms of decoration and clientele (ie less than sulubrious).
One thing that I’ve always found with this one compared to others is that the service is usually pretty good and they are well staffed.
Reviewed on 31/10/12 having popped in to see if I could hit on some of the collaboration brews from the BF.
3 were on in the form of Thirsty Beaver, Del Borgo and Ishi so can’t fault them for choice. 2 or 3 other fest beers also available allied to the usual JDW cask and tap range.
Worth popping in on a Rugby crawl but if you only have time for a couple of venues the Rupert Brooke would probably be my 5th on the list or thereabouts!
