Excellent food, waiter, service and value for money.

Recently enjoyed a family birthday meal at Whetherspoons. Excellent value for money. The food was lovely, fresh and well presented courtesy of Sean the chef. Our waiter Jack was friendly, cheerful and efficient, nothing was too much trouble.

Three of us dined on the Tuesday steak night. The place was very busy to say the least. We all ordered the steaks. One annoyance was that we all ordered separately (company expenses) and each meal came separately. My colleagues were almost finished eating as the next meal came to the table. The meal was excellent value, cooked to my... More

We regularly drink and eat here, the food, atmosphere and staff are all excellent. We have never had a bad meal. Itor Lopez is the best waiter there, he's friendly, helpful and always has a smile on his face, the rest of the staff are wonderful too, and they make it a great place to chill out with great food.

Met with a warm smile from Katie P. We ordered pancakes and eggs benedict and did not have to wait too long for it to come.

We've just shared a snowy weekend with two friends in Thetford. On the first night we walked down to the town centre and spent a lovely couple of hours in The Red Lion. It is definitely the best Wetherspoons I've ever been in. Lovely and warm, clean modern and well decorated. The staff worked extremely hard and were polite and... More

I came here with my young family just after New Years, it wasn't a planned visit just a spur of the moment, we entered at lunch time and struggled to find a table but after speaking to the lovely bar staff a table was organised for us. As with all wetherspoons establishments we went and places our order at the... More

Went to Wetherspoons for lunch with my mum today. We always like the food in Wetherspoons and think it's excellent value for money. We decided to go for the curry club offer which was a great choice!!! Lovely food :) Our server, Mike, was an asset to the business. Polite and friendly, he was speedy and efficient in his role....
