We went to the spinning wheel two nights, the first night was a bit of a disappointment as we ordered two chicken burgers and a hamburger with no salad as we are all very fussy. The chicken burger and the ham burger came out with veg on and we asked nicely if we could have another with out the veg.... More

The staff are always lovely and friendly and make sure you are happy... More

Oh dear, an honest opinion would be to avoid unless you like drinks over food. Sorry we ran out on 2 dishes, we opted for an alternative but food standards are below average. It would be nice if the areas were tidy.

I visited the spinning wheel with my partner on the Sunday when the bike weekend was on and had a jacket potato with cheddar cheese and coleslaw. It was a good £6 or possibly more and really it was terrible :/ The potato was clearly a frozen/pre cooked potato which had been shoved in the microwave. It had a tiny... More

I would recomend "The Spinny" as a meeting point for friends on a night out. The out door seating is great for large groups to gather in the warmer nights. The band nights are great too.

Lovely pub during the day - candles on tables, fire going. Lively in the evening, great 70s band playing.
