See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Formerly just known as Wetherspoons, in common with the other such generic named pubs in the chain, it has been given a new name, the Spouter's Corner. Part of the Hollywood Green leisure complex, that corner of the High Road was called Spouter's Corner in the past for its popularity for free speech, or "spouting" in a similar style to Speaker's Corner at Hyde Park. Open air meetings were held until the 1950s and it was also an assembly point for hiring workers.

You enter through an outside, covered terrace into a very modern pub which it does quite well. Some striking and large murals and wall art adorn the place together with a large sculpture from a local artist. The area to the back is designated as a dining area but this may only apply during peak times. Plenty of story boards on local history and notable residents such as Ted Willis and Jack Hawkins.

Following CAMRA's updated definition of "real cider", pubs such as this selling for example Old Rosie and Orchard Pig or other ciders such as Thistly Cross, Stans, Gwynt Y Draig, Broadoak etc. no longer qualify for the "Real cider" tag.
