Visited one evening with my partner. We both went for the Lamb Rogan Josh. Very nice! Piping hot food and very tasty, not too long a wait either. At the price it's brilliant and includes a drink too. Will be back again in the future.

We love wetherspoons and this one in particular. Always a great atmosphere. We meet up with friends and eat here most weeks. It is not pretentious, just cheap and cheerful. Hubby likes curry night. Friday is fish and chips although there is also a full menu and the fish and chips are lovely. It does get busy but we sit... More

Overall it's a good wetherspoon, but can be a bit hit and miss. In with family last week. My sirloin steak was fantastic, but dad's mixed grill was barely edible. Just a but frustrating really. Beer selection great and always found staff very pleasant.

We went here as a family group of 10 following a funeral. It was the only place in Driffield that could accommodate all of us at short notice for lunch. The food is general pub fare and the portions are generous. Prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly and efficient, though there are too few on duty and you... More

We went at lunch time and got three toasties with chips and three drinks for £13, the food was tasty and there was plenty of it. The toilets and place itself very clean. The staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone visiting Driffield.
