Have been 4 times. Stingy portions. Poorly cooked. Manager gets a bigger bonus by putting on too few staff. Avoid at all costs

where else can you get two hot meals and two alcoholic drinks for just over a tenner?Food is tasty, and unlike other reviewers we found the staff friendly and the place including toilets clean and tidy.There was an unfortunate influx of Mums who seemed to think the rest of us would enjoy their precious child screaming constantly,girls you were wrong!!!

We visit this place now and again as the food is quite nice and the pub is child friendly. Today, I went with a friend who lives away and she commented how rude a member of the staff was when she was served, no eye contact, etc. After lunch, I walked down the pub to take my 3 year old... More

We don't visit this area very often but when we do we call here for breakfast. Once again we had delicious well-cooked meal. Everything was tasty and piping hot and was served within just a few minutes of ordering. Again brilliant value for money ( less than £10 for 2 breakfasts, 2 drinks and a portion of toast). Spotlessly clean... More

We were a bit dubious about eating here as I had the impression it would be cheap and nasty. I was pleasantly surprised as the decor was tasteful, it was clean and the food was tasty. If you want gourmet food then don't go here but if you want good plain cooking then it is ideal. My only criticism (mentioned... More

This is one of the newer Wetherspoons, having been built from two existing pubs a few years ago. Despite some initial uncertainty from residents, this has clearly become a firm favourite for Driffield. Like most Wetherspoons, the main selling point is its offer of cheaply priced food and drink. What sets this branch apart from the rest, is its friendly... More

My family and I have just visited Wetherspoons in Driffield for a quick and unplanned meal. When ordering I was told that there was only one type of steak available, scampi was off, fish and chips was off etc etc. When I asked for a kids menu I was given a flyer that had been coloured in by someone as...

Made to feel uncomfortable when asking for free coffee top ups, no spoons, saucers, milk had run out. More like a kiddies creche than a pub that sells food. Meal very average and made to feel you'd overstayed your welcome. Manager rude stating coffee top ups strictly end at 2pm.... Very unprofessional attitude. Dirty pots and dishes stacked up in...
