“Starting point”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Haha what can you say about Spoons? well the only place in the world where you queue for the bar. But does have quite a good selection of beers and cheap drinks the best place to start off on any night out.
breakfast is always quick and a great offer. The Thursday curry club is great too even if it seems to be an Iceland curry. You cant really complain about the food with such a fantastic price though guys. Beer festival is always a good time to visit.
Excellent staff

“Early Breakfast”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Called in early on May Day Bank Holiday. Coffee was good and breakfast up to reasonable standard. Sat outside on old platform area where you can be annoyed by crafty pigeons.

“Very convenient to the station, ideal for breakfast.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We caught a train from Aberystwyth at 9.30 on a Sunday morning to Birmingham. We got to the station a bit early therefore went to Weatherspoons for breakfast. They were open by the time we got there at 8.50am. Very convenient, on the platform in the station.
While ordering our breakfast we said that our train was leaving at 9.30, we paid and the order came through in 5 minutes. Excellent service and reasonable price. Diolch yn fawr.

“"Not a drop to drink" as the song goes.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Went to Wetherspoons Aberystwyth and yet another problem, Yep NO DRAUGHT BEER from the bar, you could not for the life of you buy a pint because they are having all the pipework replaced behind the bar, and this could last for up to 3 days or so! A pub with no beer! incredible! What a shambles for a company as big as Wetherspoons!! The only drinks you could get was anything in a bottle!
2 weeks ago the family room ( the biggest) was shut down for a week because of a leak!! Then the Mens urinals were all put out of order because of plumbing problems, it just goes on and on. 2 or 3 times in the past the heating has broken down during the winter.
To top all of this I heard that the Ladies Toilet has won "Gold" ( who awards these things!!!!!) and the Lady who told me was telling me she had to keep her foot propped against the door while she used the loo ( the lock has broken) And she even takes her own tissues in her bag because more than likely they have no loo roll!! Wetherspoons have got issues with this pub and need to address them!
