“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Popped in on the off chance on a Sunday ...very busy but they managed to find a table for us. All the staff were very polite and friendly. The food was great- we had 3 roasts- chicken, beef and lamb. All served with a yorkshire pud and a generous serving of vegetables. The puddings were lovely too! Would definately return if we were ever in the area again.

“Value breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Visiting a pub is a rare thing for us as we are not big drinkers, however breakfast is special to us and we do enjoy brekkies at 'spoons' good value and comfortable surroundings, do it when we can.

Specials are good value
Can be a little crowded
Have never tried the Curry nights as I don't like curries but steaks are good.

“Not bad at all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

I haven't eaten in a wetherspoons for years, but recently stopped over for a beer and a burger. And was pleasantly surprised. The burger had a nice quality fresh bun, the meat was actually really good (I was expecting mega cheap stuff) and a small but fresh amount of salad. For the price it was excellent. It's a lovely old pub so there is loads of spaces hidden round corners.
