Have used this Wetherspoons on previous holidays and it has been OK. Unfortunately on this visit I can only consider the breakfasts to be poor. The three breakfasts were: a traditional breakfast, tea cakes and fried eggs and bacon on toast. After the last one I decided enough was enough. One of the staff was cheerful and chatty. Used the...

Visited this pub for breakfast before heading home and after waiting a fair while the food finally turned up and wasn't that great to be honest. It was luke warm and eggs were under cooked which was a shame as normally the breakfasts are good.
