‘Spoons Tour Plymouth

Posted by sm1d on July 19, 2010

The Union Rooms

The Mannamead
The Britannia Inn


I attended the Plymouth Argyle v Newcastle United FA Cup tie on the first weekend of 2010.There are four Wetherspoons pubs in Plymouth. So after we negotiated a 400+ mile journey we arrived at Home Park at 1030am, giving us plenty of time to complete the Plymouth ‘Spoon set.  😦 

The Gog & Magog

The Mannamead  –   DARTMOOR  ‘Jail Ale’ (4.8%)**** 

The Gog & Magog   –  SHARPS  ‘Doom Bar’ (4%)**** 
The Union Rooms  –  COTLEIGH  ‘Snowy Winter Ale’ (4%)*** The Mannamead

The Britannia Inn is the closest pub to Home Park and so we made this pub our last stop off before the match. Unfortunatly the place was choco-block and there was a queue around the block to get in, so the chance to complete the Plymouth ‘Spoons set was denied. I won’t be making the 810 mile round trip to complete the set, i’ll just settle for ticking three out of four.
