Great pub

Visited this pub for Saturday lunch while visiting the town, sat out in their garden which was lovely and relaxing with plenty of space. The lunch we ordered was good value for money and served quickly. The staff were friendly.

Very overcrowded and food isn't great, served luke warm fried egg rock solid, everything just looked like it had been slung on the plate with no thought or care.. Tables piled high with dirty plates, there doesn't appear to be enough staff to clear and wipe down tables, so you end up sitting at a dirty sticky table until you... More

Not once did the waitresses ask how our meal was! The bar... More

Had a couple of meals in here and on last visit we sat in one of the 'front' rooms facing the street outside. I was pleased to see that Wetherspoon's have done a very good job at maintaining the fabric of this old building...Fascinating collection of old books, some well over 100 yrs old adorn some rooms....Food was excellent value...

Doing something of a tour locating ciders from the 30 listed in their festival we came to this outlet again during the early afternoon. In view of the issues last year ( no listing of which ciders were on offer in five Spoons) there had been a directive to formulate a table top list of the current stock, with numbers... More

Your basic chain pub, that is always busy, mostly because it's affordable. The food is good, especially the curry's, good portion at a good price.

This place has much improved from my last visit, it all seems much cleaner and staff seem more friendly with you! Good choice of drinks as usual Wetherspoon expectations but none the less I will returning more frequently now they appear to have got it right

Had lunch there today - baking hot outside, but high ceilinged inside and lovely and cool, airy and clean/tidy. Food is great value, as is the beer - standard Wetherspoons fayre, but this is perhaps a cut above some of the others. Well worth a visit, and better value than most in the area. The food will not let you... More

My husband and I had lunch here today - what a delight. Clean tables, friendly staff, good food at very reasonable prices. Don't expect 'fine dining' - it is what it is - great value!
