I have been to this Wetherspoons on a number of occasions and the service has been very slow at the bar. I have always ordered meals when visiting. I have never been asked by your staff if everything was okay with the food. Your Sittingbourne branch is very good and they always come round to ask if everything was okay... More

Hubby and I are avid real ale fans and our local spoons supports this also at half of the price of other pubs. Most of the staff are nice and competent and the decor is... More

We had Sunday lunch. The roast was a little disappointing but the pulled pork sandwich was good. Two eating for less than £15. Staff were very good, order taken promptly and food arrived very quickly. I was certainly full and couldn't manage coffee and cake.

Been here a few times now and despite other reviewers giving a negative response we haven't really had any problems here except the coffee being a little too cool for my personal liking and the food taking quite a while to arrive when they are busy, but i guess thats to be expected.
