Not the best place we've eaten

We popped in here as we have often used the Wetherspoon chain. However, we were a little disappointed, as the staff were not that friendly, and the food not that good. The whole place looked in need of a little TLC.

Went for dinner here yesterday, during their curry night. Very busy, but staff were working very hard and no one seemed to be waiting any length of time. Food was good, hot and great value for money. Everything you expect from Werherspoons. Good work guys.

I took my two granddaughters into the family area at lunch time which was absolutely packed with families, some of which were not well behaved. We managed to locate a table for 4 which had just been cleaned by the only waitress on duty for the family area. This waitress was of Polish decent and was really rushed off her... More

We met here with friends for a lunch on Monday and I choose the Caesar salad, I have To say disappointed would be an understatement, for nearly £7 there was literally lettuce leaves and small amounts of chopped up chicken mixed in with some dressing and that was it!!!not good value for money.

I find it very annoying when you stand at the bar waiting to be served and the staff dont know your next to be served and neither do the customers. But that said this happens in many puds. We both had the same steak medium but mine was pink, still tasked ok, but being British we don't complain just moan... More
