Food Good - not that you can see it!

We went here for lunch over the past weekend. The food itself was great, cooked well and served retentively quickly. The main problem is the lighting, its quite dark, to the point when you then go outside the light almost stuns you. Once you get over the lack of light its a lovely place to eat.

Shocking microwaved rubbish, the food came out cold and was very boring. It's ok for a drink very good value but the food is shocking

Came in every day between X-Mas & New Years Eve 2015 for a good value meal and drink. Excellent hard working staff. Quickly served meals. Wide range of value for money drinks. Fish & Chips always perfect. Had a rumpsteak on STEAK TUESDAY but wouldn't order again: soggy and rather tasteless. Especially beef shouldn't be frozen and served reheated for... More

I often hear very good things about this place so thought I'd try it. Arrived at midday for lunch with mother and she ordered food from the bar and asked if our table could be cleared and cleaned and was told "I can give you some wipes to clean it with if you'd like?" Don't expect this from a place... More

Wetherspoons are masters of serving good quality food, at high volume, at a good price. Always served with a smile in a pleasant environment. Friday and Saturday nights tend to attract heavy drinkers because of cheap beer but it's controlled and not a problem. Let's not kid ourselves, the bulk of food here is pre prepared and reheated but I... More

Has always been busy in here but with Christmas looming its heaving in here at certain times of the day. Still the staff in here manage to hold their own and keep their cool.
