Hadn't planned to eat here. I've nothing against Wetherspoons, in fact I've eaten in quite a few and my local is excellent. They do decent gluten and dairy free menus, however this does not extend to breakfast. The porridge and toast that I really wanted ended up being a cooked breakfast and not delicious like the ones I'd had across... More

What a lovely pub! There was a good selection of real ales, cider and lager, the food was excellent too. One night I had the Tennessee Burger, which was really tasty and just the right size portions. Also went there to have the standard breakfast, which I can thoroughly recommend (the large breakfast is also worth having and very good... More

We were visiting York and went for Scampi, chips and peas which was very good, the place could do with a bit of refreshing but the staff are friendly. It was very busy so must be a popular venue.

Lunchtime Bank Holiday Monday and the place was absolutely jam packed. Difficult to get through all the standing customers but we did and found there were plenty of tables. Food of the accepted standard

The food here is fine and the staff are very friendly and helpful. But the place looks tired, despite a recent "mini refresh". There is some building work to one side of the building, so maybe they are making an extension, which would be useful as it gets busy at times. Unfortunately, it suffers from Wetherspoons "Sticky Table Syndrone" -... More

Tested out the new Wetherspoons app whilst we were here and ordered food and drinks from our table on our phones. Drinks came almost immediately, food followed not far behind. It being a Wetherspoons the food is the same in all of them so won;t really comment on this but the venue itself was nice and in a very handy... More

I like the theory of Wetherpoons cheap foood & drink & was with a friend who always sings their praises. Towards the end of evening went here for a nightcap on way to hotel. Everything felt grubby, so many menus & deals all over tables, glasses & food not cleared away. Had to do this ourselves to make acceptable for... More
