Just visited the Raven with my wife for a meal and a few drinks. What can I say the service from all the staff was exceptional nothing was to much trouble. The meal arrived well presented and cooked to perfection. The array of different alcohol was amazing (for a smaller Wetherspoons) and all at moderate prices. The menus tell you... More

As Wetherspoons go this to be fair is probably one of the nicer ones. Food typical Wethersoons and all cheap and cheerful as per usual. I would say in general as a huge chain of pubs they are improving.

My personal thanks to Adele, Simon, Eddie and all concerned behind the bar and behind the scenes regarding my visit on Thursday night, 6th October. I worked out that it is 15 years since I first started arranging get togethers in the Raven. The location is handy for commuters. Bus route literally outside and over the road plus Orrell Park...
