Jewel of the Severn

Opened in 2002 - this is your typical J.D.Wetherspoons pub - big open spaces, air conditioned, no music, cheap beer and food.

Readers comments - Alan says that Hobsons is also available. Mary (the Licensee) has 6 hand pumps: 2 have Batham's Bitter and Hobson's Bitter as regulars and the other 4 take the ever-changing guest ales.
