The following day was wet and miserable so after a trip to the cinema we went to a couple of Wetherspoons pubs in St Helens which were both nice enough.
The Running Horses had impressive décor and was dare I say rather classy looking for a Wetherspoons. We had a double disaronno to warm us up from the rain and I would have loved to stay for a bite to eat but the kitchen was being refurbished at the time so we couldn’t.
Next we went to The Glass House which was a short walk through town. This pub has more of a reputation for serving good beer and from the pint I had I can see why.
After visiting pubs in Suffolk it is funny how I first came across this seasonal Adnams Beer in St Helens. Adnams Fisherman was last brewed in 2005 and was brought back for the Autumn 2012 Beer Festival especially for Wetherspoons.
It is very similar to an Old Ale in colour and taste but in my opinion better. It has the fruity essence of a Broadside and was very refreshing at a cold temperature. It had a very fresh taste which is rare for an Adnams served at a Wetherspoons and at £1.99 it was an absolute bargain.
I would recommend this ale to any Adnams fans and it is perfect for the up and coming winter months. If you want to see how Adnams describe Fishermans click here.
