  1. We stayed in Luton after the game last Sunday. On Monday morning we went to the Spoons for Breakfast and a few coffees before the drive back. A few of my mates were in there from about 9am and me and my daughters got there at about 9:45. at 10am one of my mates reckoned one bloke in the bar was on his third pint that he had personally saw him order. That's some going at 10am.

    There were people in there knocking back large glasses of wine with no food as well.

    In terms of how long their lives will last, pretty much everyone in there was over 60.

    Best one I’ve seen was an owld bloke in the Jameson who was so hammered that when finally got out of his seat to go to the bog, he staggered 3 yards, stopped then turned back round having pissed his beige slacks.

    Annoying places like anywhere that allows people to order at the bar

    You have to catch a Wetherspoons in the first couple of years of opening, before the hardened jakeys get established.

    Harrogate Winter Gardens is very nicely done, as is the Counting House in Glasgow and the Caley Picture House in Edinburgh. These buildings would probably be derelict or coffee shops otherwise.

    You know you can get a decent pint and solid if unspectacular food for less than a tenner. They've saved the pub trade really. Yes, some are like the Mos Eisley Cantina but that's what you get.

    The Picture House was a really decent gig venue until they turned it into another fucking 'spoons. Just what Edinburgh doesnt need in my opinion.

    Were the owners forced to sell the building to spoons?

    Probably talking to himself in the 'spoons bogs mirror.

    Try to avoid it since the knacker who runs it went all Brexit and putting it out there with their marketing.

    I've CAMRA vouchers for Spoon but I've not been in one in weeks. I've probably had my money's worth of CAMRA membership from other places by now.
    The Spoons we have can't seem to look after their beer properly. Kinda defeats the point.
  16. Most can't. I tend to drink Shipyard or Punk IPA in Spoons these days as the guest ales can be a gamble.

    Been 7 year since I was on the piss there and the boozers were grim as fuck. £5 a pint of pisswater tennants etc, every bar stunk of piss.

    What i’d have give for a nice clean spoons with a £3.29 San Miguel.

    I think it's safe to assume absolutely none of this happened.
