Answer: When there’s no damned beer. What are Wetherspoons up to? Apparently a rhetorical question as the answer appears to be “not much”. Fortunately a good pint of Titanic Stout was on offer, maybe more by luck than judgement.
Interesting to note that the kiddy-friendly fruity cider that went off – after some of our group tried it I might add(get a grip boys) – was replaced within the hour, leaving not a single festival ale on when we left.
