Just another Whetherspoons-not much different then the one up the road and around the corner. For a tourist the coffee was decent, some of the better available in town that I've found. Fish Fridays are good but they tend to run out early, so get there early. They have decent value for a traditional English breakfast. The night pub atmosphere... More

Went on Fish Friday. It was very busy and had to wait at the bar to be served. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Fish and Chips ordered with a drink, took approx. 15 mins to arrive. Which was fine as I said before it was very busy. My husband would have liked a few more chips, so being the... More

This bar is part of the Wetherspoons chain but it is a nice bar and seating is plentiful. It is usually fairly busy even during the day and in the evenings especially the weekends. I have eaten here and it wasn't great but I've probably experienced worse elsewhere. It's good for a quick fix. A decent pint and good staff... More

Nice staff who are friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere when they were collecting for a children's charity encouraging their patrons to dig deep - this was done without pressure and I'm sure lots of money was raised. Well done :)

We went for a drink and a meal on a wet Sunday in October 2014. My only complaint was that the barman had no idea about the real ales offered commenting that he was a "lager" person but he did arrange for someone more knowledgeable to help me. The 2 special beers (an American Pale Ale & a Brewdog Lager)... More
