A large group of us went for Friday lunch. We have tried many restaurants over the years but this was the first Wetherspoons. The manager kindly reserved a slightly separate area for us - we are a lively group of ladies and it works better that way! The choice was pretty good and as it was Friday there was a... More

I'm a regular diner at the elms and for good reason, fab food, great prices and friendly staff. The food is always spot on, especially when you consider the price and the staff are always very friendly and helpful, a well run pub all round it would seem. Highly recommended.

I have been here for the last five years on a weekly maybe two weekly basis. Suddenly YOU insist on only taking contactless payment. I had this discussion with. The manager last time.
