Great for cheap meals and drinks

Ashford's popular pub for pre drinks before going out as cheap and value for money lunches. You get what you pay for, everything is frozen and microwaved before hand but still yummy food. Great value for money, Portions are quite big too. Food is served till 11pm!

This is the second time we have went to the steak night on a Tuesday and we really can't fault it. Value for money. Simple but full of flavour and a perfect affordable treat on a Tuesday night. We had two rump steaks, cooked perfectly, and a bottle of wine for under £20 quid. We eat here regularly, food and... More

This has a nice atmosphere, an interesting old building and freindly and helpful staff. Decent selection of beers and as is always the case very reasonably priced food - who can knock a beef baguette and chips for three quid? Sometimes with 'spoons you think 'come on guys, more than 7 chips on the plate wouldn't kill you' (!) but... More

We went to this pub for a late lunch yesterday (Sunday) after a nice walk in Dover. The venue looks quite nice. But Food was pitiful. Both my husband and I ordered half rack of pork ribs. It was a rather small piece with some not so nicely cooked chips and a few mouthfuls of coleslaw. Won't recommend it to... More

First time we had eaten here, was recommended by a family member. Lovely atmosphere, big restaurant area. Large choice of meals, all with one free drink. If you have a toast you get money off a dessert, which is always a bonus! Recommend for a quick meal, good, prompt service.

I know it's a chain pub, which makes it seem less like a proper local, but it's just so refreshing to find somewhere so affordable with such a wide range of food and beer to choose from. There's a nice patio area for warmer days, and a dark and cosy interior for the winter. Cheap beer, finally!! My only slight... More

Great English Old Style Pub. Fine food, wide choice of excellent drinks at affordable prices. Fish'n'chips is always a must when I come over from the continent. Staff friendly and helpful. Alcoholics and children may be noisy but I'm afraid you can't change the course of time. A 5star great Wetherspoon!!!!!
