ManVsBeer  (2050) Hebden Bridge, England | July 7, 2016
Facing the river Taw close to the old town bridge. I first visited this pub in 2012 and there was no second Wetherspoon in the town then, but having revisited it had the better selection of the two on my most recent visit, despite being the ’Lloyds Bar’ late night revelling pub of the chain. There’s a couple of tables out front on a restricted access road parallel to the river, so there’s not much traffic passing the pub at any time of the day. Inside there’s a thick carpet and lots of dark wood and is very cosy for it. The bar is against the left hand wall and set back into the pub with the usual couple of rows of ales available, although not as extensive as other bigger town and city pubs from Wetherspoon, nevertheless it’s decent enough when compared with others in Barnstaple. The usual keg and bottle selections are available too.

Large Wetherspoons in quite a modern building and set up. Pretty lairy on a Friday evening and certainly packed out. Lloyds No.1 bar but not as smart as some of them. You know what you are going to get.

An excellent, constantly rotating cask beer selection with help from CAMRA. Great selection of local/UK brews and some big UK Macros for the lads. Food is pretty meh, just something to soak up beer. A decent courtyard in the sun and lots of TV’s inside. Some nice wood and a smaller, queiter section if you can get in. Usually packed to the tits in the evenings though as prices are cheap and there are many deals. Not the best place to head for food and atmosphere but if you want a great beer selection look no further.

My Brewglobin came here many times while staying in Barnstaple, usually a couple visits a day. We went for the brew selection more so than anything else. Not the best atmosphere, but so many good memories here and beers.
