Cheap and cheerful

Last time I visited was OK (just) as it was full of family and quite noisy other diners. But that is the sort of venue it is, catering for the cheaper end of the market. A drinkers type pub with dining area off to one side. Having said that, it would not deter me from attending again for a... read more

I feel compelled to write because, as the pub has gone downhill due to the poor quality of some of the current staff. Having visited many times recently I have been unimpressed by a number of factors which have spoiled what was until recently a good Wetherspoons. Among the issues encountered: - lack of staff - staff being more interested... More

Not long ago we went to the elms for a few drinks we were all served the first time round however the second time we got asked for ID... Once ID from everyone was given we was then asked again by the manager (tall one rather arrogant). The manager then began to interrogate the people who looked the youngest out... More

The tall manager should not be behind the bar, he is a permanently miserable, horrible, nasty man and should not be in the service industry. This post is not because of a one off gripe, I'm a regular and there are plenty of us here, and we are all equally aggravated. As a postscript I would like to say every... More

I had a jacket potato with beans and cheese and a salad, the food was ok and in good quantity. Waiter was not amazingly cheerful and helpful, but I guess as I was on my own ordering just a bit of food, they didn't expect any tips so didn't really bother being friendly. Anyway, I would still go back if... More

decent food for a reasonable price, not overly child friendly. Food of excellent quality at a very reasonable price, Good for adult groups who want good quality and value pub grub.

Popped in for some wings. ( I love winggggssss) it was rather busy on a Friday afternoon but to my astonishment this member of staff walked over to a table which I thought was a family of mother children and grandparents.
