The birthday run has to start somewhere and it frequently has started in a bar (last year was an exception for a trip to Maastricht). Early mornings dictate a Wetherspoons (most serve alcohol from 9 am) and the other ‘Spoons in Trowbridge was reviewed on my previous trip here, so the Albany Palace got the nod.
You always know what to expect food-wise (not very appetising) but the beer selection and prices are always fantastic. I had a very floral beer called Spring Daze but didn’t note the brewery, sadly.
The pub is right on the park from which I planned to start, anyway, and so I did a few minutes later.
