“Good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

The food is very reasonably priced and the service is good. If you want a quick pub lunch it hits the spot. There is plenty of room and it is very clean. The only down side was that the regulars appeared to be getting served first at the bar and I had to wait a while. I had the gourmet burger which was a big meal for the amount I paid - in fact I could not finish it. All in all very good value

“First class food and service .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The food is excellent ,they are top rated for their food hygene and the food is cooked to a good standard. . I always have steak here and ask for it medium rare it is always perfectly cooked and well presented . The manager is always on the ball keeping an eye on every aspect of the pub . I have been to many Wetherspoon pubs and rate this one the best for food and service .

“WHAT A PUB, I CAN'T WAIT TO GO... again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Bloody nora, I love this place. I'd happily spend every waking moment there, if they didn't close I'd never leave!! Sometimes when it's down to last orders, I get a couple of pints and hide in the bog, hoping they don't find me and I can stick around until breakfast.
