Alright for a quick bite to eat

It's a Wetherspoons and what you get is what you'd expect. Had a quick meal before going out for some drinks and it was actually quite cosy and the restaurant area was alright and away from the bar area. Food was OK but nothing special but it was fine as a meal out before a night out

We visited this pub as a family for my grandsons 13th birthday and I have to say I was impressed. We had booked a table and it was ready for us. We sat down and ordered food and although busy the food arrived fairly promptly and hot . All the meals were very good my Aberdeen Angus steak was cooked... More

Good food and drink, budget pricing, excellent location close to the beach and town centre, just what we needed, especially as I had brought my family with me on this holiday!

Three people went in for a drink. One got his choice of lager, 2nd got 3rd choice of cider and the poor beer drinker got 4th choice. I assume the queue was caused by the 2 staff having to tell customers most of the drinks weren't available. If a drink is not on tap why don't they turn the label... More

We came in for a spot of lunch only to be welcomed with dirty, sticky tables (I dread to think what was used to clean them!) and chairs, the floor was caked in other peoples left over food and to top it off the toilets could have done with a tidy round, loo roll on the floor and hair in... More

We stopped in here as there was outside seating and the staff said it was ok to sit there with our dog. The tables and floor was gross! very sticky and dirty. We had planned to have a few drinks and some chicken wings but the bar staff said "I don't think we have any wings today" You think? Or... More
