Anyone from Newark who is only used to Newark’s Wetherspoons, should go to Retford and see theirs. What a contrast – good beer (it’s been in the Good Beer Guide two years running). The place is smart and well decorated, no broken windows or blood stains on the pavement! The locals are well mannered. Always a good range of beers, last Monday night Retford’s Grafton brewery had a little stand there giving away free samples.
