Initially sheltering from the weather I enjoyed an hour in this rather good Weatherspoon's. Making use of the Chicken Club menu and excellent local Ale. Lovely surroundings and friendly staff and only a short walk from the BR Station.

I went here with a friend for a late lunch. Coffee is standard, nothing special from their machine. It does get loud, sound bounces off the walls, so try to avoid busy times. I ordered a Texan burger with 5 bean chilli off the vegetarian...More

Although the front will never ben considered pretty, one inside light floods in due to roof windows and one side of the pub being mostly made of glass. The décor is mainly brown which is a bit bland though! The lightbulbs are dim too which...More
