Pump HouseUnit 1, Parkgate Development, Stratford Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A large open plan modern pub - unusually for Wetherspoon's, situated in a new retail development rather than a repurposed building. The large glass external walls allow panoramic views of the pedestrian shopping street to the front; the large outside drinking space is split into smoking and non-smoking areas. The name refers to a garage that was once on the site of the pub many years ago. The friendly staff serve a varied range of guest beers that are sourced from local and national breweries, and a real cider is always available. Unusually, the 'cellar' is directly above the bar, and the casks are visible through a large window. Always popular, to the point where it may take a few minutes to find a vacant table.
