Really popular, so don't be surprised if the tables need tidying. Food here is cheap and cheerful but always good value for money. More surprising is the way they manage to serve good wine, well chilled and all other drinks at bargain prices.

We regularly have breakfast here, but after a month away have noticed on our last two visits that standards have fallen. Breakfasts were lukewarm and on cold plates. Serving sizes smaller (beans; sauce on Eggs Benedict, etc.) and the coffee is weaker. I guess it reduces costs, but we are going elsewhere for a while.

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 standard breakfast... 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...
