Odd Friday night

We went to the Green Ginger on a Friday night & were surprised we had to pay an entry fee (I've never been to a Wetherspoon that charges an entry fee). The range of customers was odd - I reckon it ranged from groups of 18 year olds to 60 year old couples. The music was also a mixture from... read more

I came to green ginger only to be told i wasn't aloud in. I was wearing trousers and a shirt but still apparently didn't meet the dress code, They were abusive and swore at me. Everyone stay away from this place, they are abusive and rude!

Gourmet burger arrived. Burnt to a cinder. The bitterness from the burning makes this inedible. Daren't complain, God knows what would follow! The bun is twice the size of the burger. YTS lives on.

This was the second visit to The Green Ginger for us. Last year it was a spur-of-the-moment visit, this time we booked in advance. Not something you think of doing at a Wetherspoons but we were not disappointed. The pub gets very busy at weekends so if you want to eat as a group then you will need to book.... More

Okay, as this is a Wetherspoon i wasn't expecting lobster thermidor but by the same token i do not expect food which i would not even serve to my dog. I ordered a ham egg and chips as i thought to myself 'What could possibly go wrong?' Well here goes. The ham was chewy, the eggs were cold and the... More

Visited as a family of 4. Staff were all friendly & polite. Food was fine & really good value, as you would expect from a Wetherspoons. All came away fed & watered for under £23. Could have been a little hotter but overall fine. What more do you want ?!?! Thanks.

Really disappointed by this Wetherspoons, rowdy and sadly a barmaid with attitude. Food was OK but slightly below normal Spoons standard, chips/onion rings tasted of 'over used' frying oil. Would not visit this one again.
