I'm quite a fan of Wetherspoons - always a good choice for a quick cheap pub lunch with a drink included! Always a bargain! The food here was good, however we didn't feel very welcome.

I loved the fact that there was plenty of room and seats were easy to get to. The bar served great coffee and my husband is a great fan of the real Ale they serve. I have no complaints about the food as it was well cooked an plentiful. Staff were polite and helpful.

It is LLoyds bar and bit more expensive but it has music. Another branch of Wetherspoons and I loved it. Clean and lots of toilets as always. In a good site on the harbour and near bus stop. Shopping centre behind it via escalotors.

We went for dinner on a Thursday night, it was their curry night, so choice of many curries and a drink too for under £6. My wife and i chose the korma, very tasty and served with naan and poppadoms. Service from Alicia and Joe was excellent. Two very happy customers!
