“Friendly staff,quick service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went in for a quick drink and a snack while waiting on a train.
Busy place with friendly staff.
It could do with a good dust though,as it was pretty thick in places.

“Limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Compared to other pubs in this chain the menu was limited, I struggled to find a decent choice and elected for fish which I ended uo leaving as it was full of bones. Others too struggled to find a meal of choice, so we settled for what was there but was not happy at all. When asked was everything okay and told n and the reason why, the server looked stricken, said he would tell chef, we heard no more. Not recommended.

“Strange to say the least!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went in, looked at menu, look at bar staff and customers who were commenting on everyone coming in! Walked out! Quite a non friendly hostile atmosphere!

“tough steak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Visited the leaping salmon recently and ordered surf and turf ..well I needed a lawnmower to cut the turf it was so tough..the mushroom served with it was dried out and the tartare sauce was in a cardboard container which was virtually impossible to get out ...I thought it might be better as the holidays had finished and there was hardly any customers in the place ..but no it was just has bad .

We will not be visiting again until there is a vast improvement in the steak served here . Other witherspoons get it right so why can't the Berwick one do this .
