Not what it was, give time..

Passing through I stopped by for a bite to eat and a drink. Great selection on the bar, always been a great mars tons fan. Staff seemed nice and plate busy. Seems a few teething problems which I'm sure with new faces will be ironed out. So much potential. Will be back soon to try again. Fingers... read more

We mentioned that the salad... More

It has been some time since we have had lunch at the Old Spa. There were plenty of cars in the car park which to me is a good sign. On Entry we found the venue to have been refurbished and the pub being run the Marston's way. It was fairly busy and is obviously well supported by its patrons.... More

This pub has recently been refurbished but what they really need to do is change manager,so come on marstons surely you can do better than this man who is a liability to your... More

As a near neighbour of this venue, we are always surprised by the amount of cars in its car park. Many cars usually mean popular venue for food and drink. Whilst they have done a good job with the redecoration of this Marstons pub once again the food has let it down. Purely for its convenience we popped in for... More
