This is a lovely modern pub which is always buzzing - be it the family crowd throughout the day, or groups of socialising friends at night. Great value, hearty meals with many offers- Fish Fridays being well worth a trip. Normal Wetherspoons menu available so a wide choice for all tastes including healthier options. Wide range of drink options. Friendly,... More

Staff were very welcoming and knowledgable. Having ordered food, it was brought to the table promptly, with staff checking that everything was ok, and returning during the meal to check again. The table was cleared promptly and staff thanked us as we left later in the evening.

3 of us went in on Saturday morning for breakfast. I have been in previous for drinks but never for food. I can't fault the food very nice and arrived quick. The price of £11 was also very reasonable. Would definitely go back

Had the worst ever Sunday lunch here yesterday. Beef was grey in colour, thick cut and very fatty. Gravy clay cold and roasties hard. NOT BE BACK!

Came for something cheap and cheerful and REALLY wish we'd gone to the pub up the road which was serving MUCH better food at similar prices. The waiters were friendly and helpful but the food was mediocre at best. Plus the table full of teenages swearing at full volume all through their meal did little to add to the atmosphere.... More

Restaurant was very busy, but did manage to get a table in the end, which followed with quick service at the bar and while waiting for our meals. Staff were friendly and happy to help, good value for money and nice food. Will be returning again.

First night in Morpeth and wanted quick reliable food and a drink. The is a good choice of ales which all hit the spot, but the food left a lot to be desired. Burnt burgers and really dry fried fish left us wanting more. I suppose you get what you pay for. Wetherspoons is cheap and cheerful unless you are... More

My 5 year olds food arrived on a plate that was scalding hot and he burnt himself! My meal was over cooked and my daughters Sunday dinner was virtually non existent comprising 1 piece of tough beef, a very hard dry Yorkshire pudding and a measly few microwave veg! Very disappointed. I appreciate Sundays are busy but there's no need... More
