Woah! How bad can it be. Was staying in Dover on Sunday night 20/05/15 and missed the independent places that do good Sunday Roast i.e. The White Horse. So, we went to The Eight Bells a Weatherspoons establishment. I don't knock Weatherspoons as the only one I've been to for this type of food is The Drapers in Peterborough, which... More

The food was great and atmosphere was nice. We had to figure out that you get a table and then order at the bar. Then you pick up the food to bring to the table. A nice pub type atmosphere

The food was as usual great unbeatable value that you would expect from J D Wetherspoon. Steak club is great value and also the burger and a beer meal deal.

Eggs Royale, very tasty and a decent quality of smoked salmon, just a shame the eggs were more like hard boiled. Today tables were slow in being cleared and not cleaned with sanitiser.

Had lunch at Weatherspoons. Other places on TA were closed. Typical meal. Nice to be sitting in an alcove particularly in the state I was in. Not had steak pudding, chips beans. Followed that with American pancake. Good service.
