In my opinion this is not the best Wetherspoons, but it is not the worst. As with all Wetherspoons the menu is the same at all, as are the prices and portion sizes. What let this Wetherspoons down was the service. We had our very young grandson in a pushchair with us and as the waitress served the... read more

'Cheap and Shabby' is the best way I can put it. Drinks are cheaper than anywhere. Food is also very cheap but good tasting pub grub. However the service can be slow at some times with only 1 person on the bar during busy periods. And the whole thing needs a refurb!!! It's so old looking it makes me feel... More

The food was very good for the price. I had the Burritos and can recommend them. I went on a Saturday night and it was very busy in there but the food still came quite quickly.

While the food is good and great value, its not worth the headache and even stress of going there. As a company they should be embarrassed. Not sure if its lack of training or what but the service is absolutely terrible. Staff are slow, don't understand the concept of multitasking and unlike good bar staff can't seem to keep an... More

Not the sort of place where your going to get a warm welcome as the bar staff serve and act very clinically but we turned up for a meal for a change from our regular pub and found the food to be nicely cooked and the service was very quick Would go again

I'm a regular visitor. Great selection of Ales and I can't remember a bad pint. This evening I had a double burger with a jacket potato and a great pint of Adnams Old for less than £7. Cooked well and good value :-)

Great beer, decent food, cheap as chips, gets busy, sometimes takes a while to get served, good wi fi signal, and shows sports on the Tv, theres also a few choice characters around.
