“Holidays are coming” and with it all those dreadful seasonal drinkers that CAMRA members on DISCOURSE are criticising for putting money in pub tills.
If in doubt, follow the Spoons van as it drops off all your favourite festive drinks to a packed Wetherspoons near you.
You’ll never get to the bar, of course, as I found out in Preston.
So for the civilised Spoons experience, visit at 9am. If in Warwick, you can take in a bit of history before it opens.
I’m SURE we’ve been to the Thomas Lloyd before, probably when we stuck our campervan in the racecourse for a night.
It hardly merits its own write-up, except for 3 things.
- I know how much you love pub life in Hi-Vis. Anyone who says Spoons aren’t Proper Pubs deserves their high table micro hell.
2. The staff are tremendously friendly ( as they often are in Tim’s pubs), chatting to Old Boys (and me) at the bar and the tables.
3. I know how much you love to see Old Boys meeting up with mates and reflecting on life over a 9am pint. Don’t knock it; it’s a lonely world.
And the Ruddles (I used the App) was an excellent pairing with my mushroom benedict (3.5 for each).
Admit it, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
