It's Wetherspoons. The food is cheap and pretty bad, if they have what you want at all. They have some good drinks, but they can also screw up cheese on toast. Chips are decent though. It's where you go when you can't be bothered, really, or are starting a night out. Or waiting for the train--just getting a drink in the back patio by the station can be pretty nice. Really it's all fine, except the actual food. The vegetarian curry must be okay since it sells out so quickly every time (I've never managed to get it) but stay far away from the 'rarebit' as it's really pretty dire.

That said, the staff are generally good, the service isn't too slow, and they're good about letting people move around the tables to accomodate larger groups.

Spoons here in Aberystwyth is dreadful.

Service is slow and unfriendly, and the only people who seem to enjoy spoons are those on the dole. Twice now, I've seen ambulances turn up to cart off people who've been in a fight.

What a way to enjoy a drink? Never going back.

Basically it is a student hangout and most of the tables and chairs have seen a lot of life. Food is average but good value.

It's the 1st time I've had a problem while eating at Spoons in Aber, The person taking my order, place an order for the wrong thing, I asked for Sauages and Mash, but he ordered sausage chips and beans. Wasn't quite what I had wanted.
