Opened in July 2017, it is decorated in an Art Deco and cinematic style. Wetherspoons spent three million pounds on the project converting two adjoining buildings, both having been cinemas at different times in the past. Two original projectors left on site are on display. The staff are very enthusiastic about their real ale selection from the twelve handpumps. As well as stocking the three usual JDW national ales, two or more are locally sourced, generally from Old Dairy, Franklins and Long Man. There are at least three continuously varying guests sourced nationally. At least two real ciders are usually available, kept in one of the large refrigerated units behind the bar. One of the largest Wetherspoons in the county, it has a variety of seating areas at different levels and at the top a large roof garden complete with tables, ash trays and overhead netting to ensure it is a herring gull free zone.
