Terrible breakfast

Firstly I visit Wetherspoons Man in the Wall in Wimborne probably twice a week sometimes with my wife sometimes on my own. We have never had a disapointing breakfast until this morning (24th Feb 15). I went in the Man in the Wall about 9 am and it was not busy maybe a dozen people. I ordered a... read more

Very good service and a great steak cooked well, could have done with a few more chips to make it perfect.

I drive for a living. I only had 8 minutes so I thought I'd pop in for a nice takeaway cup of tea and biscuit to refresh myself between trips. When I walked in there were a couple of ladies waiting at the bar and one lady serving. A man appeared behind the bar and the lady behind the bar... More

It's a Wetherspoon so you know what to expect, they have a great selection of Ales that are hard to beat, and pretty much all the food is prepared by someone else, even the eggs! However the price is good, the interior is comfortable, it's a huge pub that if you had fifty people in, it would look empty! The... More

I've popped into this weatherspoons many times as its local to my son's school. Went in today with my Mum & we both ordered a traditional breakfast, the price is really reasonable at £3.39 & if you are lucky enough to be able to eat it it would be a real bargain.....my mums breakfast came out & her sausage was...

Have been here 3 times in as many months. I can't complain about the food, it's quick, hot & value for money. Location is great, a beautiful building in the middle of town. What really, badly lets this place down is that for whatever reason, they just don't clear tables. So when you arrive,( as we did today, sunday, 2:30pm,... More

We were in Wimborne shopping ( left without breakfast). As one of our party is restricted in what they can eat, dining out is usually quite hard work. Bearing this in mind we were half expecting issues, we asked for the Duty Manager prior to ordering anything (just in case there was a problem), we were approached by a young... More
