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.

You can say what you like about Witherspoons but it always delivers reasonable food, reasonably priced that caters to everyone. It's obviously not gastro but then with two kids on tow and trying to staubg from chips, there's usually great options for kids there.

The food was enjoyable, nothing special, but what do you expect considering the price you pay! Staff were friendly and polite.
