Great Value - Clean tables. Lovely venue.

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... read more

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

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!

Normal Wetherspoon fodder. Usually would only go in for a drink and not on my list of places to eat. More like eating a ready meal unfortunately. Go here for cheap and cheerful! By the way, if you cannot stand sticky tables - don't venture in!

The location is very inviting which offers good food with a great selection, and many a beer from their vast selection. Local man in the wall beer is highly recommended! Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Always on the schedule in my UK trips!

we have eaten here many times because it's good honest food. Good service, pleasant staff and friendly atmosphere! Good for all the family! Great to eat here and go over to a show at the theatre opposite.
