Always delivers!

I use the Moon and Bell regularly. Good food, fair prices, excellent selection of drinks and friendly staff. Despite often being full, the wait for food is never excessive. The "clubs" offer excellent bargains. You know what you are getting at Wetherspoons and a huge plus is the absence of the... read more

Excellent service, great range of beers in a busy but still cosy pub. Whetherspoon do a great job of restoring pubs to how they should be, in two centres, no music, no kids, a great place to get a pint and have a chat or read the paper, or watch the news on the TV with the sound off.

Attractively decorated in dusky blues and grays, the drinking area is partly divided up into secluded tables. The usual Wetherspoons mix of good beer and cheap food in a traditional pub setting. Not far from the main shopping area area and with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Ideal for whiling away the time while other family members are shopping!

Ordered a rare steak on the steak night which came out tough and well done. They do however offer a huge selection of drinks and its good value.

A really great wetherspoons with well kept ales and excellent layout. Nice sized beer garden at rear too. Nice mixed grill and really high quality fish and chips. Some areas looking a bit tired but it does get busy with locals and students alike. Staff helpful and quick to serve at bar. Keep it up!

I've been here with some friends. I drank a half pint of beer. The pub was nice, there was enough space and beers were not expensive. It was good, I liked it and I think I will return here, probably also to eat something.
