Considering it was Folk Festival sunday, we didn't wait long for food (although we were told it would be a 1 hour wait, food arrived after 20 mins so pleasantly surprised). All the usual food and deals for a Wetherspoons with helpful staff who paid attention to who was next in the bar queue and cleared tables quickly. The gammon... More

Visited Wetherspoons for breakfast, big mistake. One if my hash browns literally exploded when I tried to cut it- it was so dry and old it had obviously been cooked a while ago. My food arrived from a surly waitress who didn't offer sauces (I'm surely not alone in wanting ketchup it brown suave with my fry up?). I had... More

Arrived at the Man in the wall for breakfast after a 100 mile journey from the midlands. Served promptly, food acceptable, staff friendly, what more can we say. Oh yes and good value for money

Visiting the UK infrequently from France, where I have lived for the last 30 years, I am interested to see how the pub experience has been adapted to face up to the challenge of drink/drive constraints, competition from home-drinking (bought from supermarkets) and so on. I had never been into a Wetherspoons pub before, so a visit to this one... More

Critics need to recognise that it is a Wetherspoons. Of the type it is a particularly good example providing you always avoid Friday/Saturday evenings. Still cannot believe how they do such value for money. Steak very good, chips fine, ham and eggs excellent, apple crumble huge portions. Hardy's red wine at £8 a bottle which is corkage of less than... More

Let me start by saying, we like Wetherspoons. Always had good meals there and often search them out when needing to eat. This time however we were very disappointed. Tables dirty, very few cleared away. Ordered burger for me, mixed grill for other half. Didn't bode well when meals were served within 5 minutes. Chips overcooked so obviously reheated and... More

Didn't like this place at all....noisy...cold chips..tables too close together for comfort. They need more staff to cope with the numbers of customers. Staff themselves were run off their feet.
