Visited on 1st July 2016. Huge Spoons in Nottingham’s party street. Two levels with lots of nooks and crannies upstairs, plus the toilets which felt like I had walked to Mansfield!
The place was pretty packed but got a table, decent enough atmosphere. Beer range was pretty good with 10 cask beers from local breweries, all tried in good condition and some new to the database. Service was quick and decent but did hurry us out at closing which is a little annoying.
A decent Spoons and if you like a cask beer then worth a look.
Huge fairly typical city centre Wetherspoons, multiple rooms, extremely slow service in here and very boisterous on the punters side of the bar, it had my wife quite worried about staying in there. Sticky carpets and tables. I have been in better.
Had breakfast here with fonefan and Charlotte, thanks for the company! The atmosphere was not improved by the septic tank man pumping out the toilets as we arrived. Once that was done, we settled down to the usual breakfast for the usual price. The only difference was that the tomatoes here are larger, and I got more than one mushroom. Coffee refills were quick and efficient.
Popular and cheap with extra space upstairs with a roof garden. Food cheap and cheerful. JDW - a branch of social services. So diplomacy may be the better part of valour in dealing with your neighbour. But that can be true everywhere.
Visited october 2014, with beery friends. Great atmosphere, think it also was a pub before JDW took over. This was a great breakfast pub, close to where we stayed, and on the way to the beer festival. They have a house beer, and a good range of locals. Beers was served in good condition. Worth a visit..
An unusual Wetherspoons as it looks to have been a pub in its previous life rather than the Spoons conversion norm. Consequently it has a more pubby feel than the average Wetherspoons. Beer range was solid with a fair few new beers for me, includng a house beer from Magpie. Definitely one of the better Wetherspoons.
In a lovely period brick building down a small alleyway road off the western side of the Market Square, this building has been made into a large open plan pub over two levels. The upstairs area is fairly small but you can look down on the service area below which is towards the rear of the building, but this is also the place to access the rare roof terrace available for customers that you don’t often associate with this chain. The interior is traditional in style and traditionally styled for a Wetherspoon pub. I’ve been here a couple of times and at the weekend it is heaving.

One of the better Wetherspoon’s, with a nice comfortable, relaxed ambience.
Unusually for a Wetherspoon’s the Roebuck looks as if it’s always been a pub, and one with a handsome Georgian exterior at that. The bar area is light and airy with a large glass skylight and several rooms off to the side. Upstairs there’s more seating and a small but pleasant roof terrace.
There are 15 taps, with a good beer range that included two ciders. All the beer we had was in good condition and the staff were efficient and attentive. There are few Wetherspoon’s pubs I’ve been to more than once but this one was worth a return visit for breakfast.
(Last visited 9 October 2014).
The selection of beers here is usually pretty good, often with more than one from the Nottingham Brewery, and generally in good condition. The atmosphere is better than most Wetherspoons and all in all it’s much more pleasant than the Joseph Else on the Old Market Square.
