Frequented this pub for a pint and a coke with the wife only to be charged nearly £6. Wasn't happy as this chain is supposed to be on the cheaper side of life. !!!!

Not sure how to reply to this one, all I can say is you must have been drinking a premium pint, your round could have been £3.60 had you chosen our best value products. We regularly check our pricing and offer the best value in town. I've been to pubs before and paid £6 for a pint so I'd still... More

Dropped in here for a quick drink whilst passing through Wick. It is a typical Wetherspoons - a bit of a Scottish twist on the beers though. Prices reasonable and actually thought it was cleaner than many Wetherspoons I've been in.

After two weeks of fine dining we just felt like a pub. Good beer, decent gin, pub grub, gluten free menu (without feeling like a burden to the restaurant). This didn't disappoint and at an unbelievable £21.12 for two after an average of £60-£80 it was pretty much perfect!!

Popped in for a coffee. It was early lunchtime and lots of people were tucking in to big plates of nice looking food. I only wanted a coffee and there was plenty of space for me to sit happily on my own having my coffee. Pleasant staff, nice bright surroundings, plenty of tables, all good. Toilets upstairs are excellent. The... More

Thanks for your review, the carpet caused quite the stir a few years ago when it was laid, Wetherspoons have quite the reputation for their 'loud' carpets and we don't disappoint! More

Usual Wetherspoons standards, with the addition of haggis on the menu ! Nothing bad to say, but nothing outstanding either.

Like all 'spoons' this has great beer and a variety of meals for all tastes at a sensible price. Try parking by the harbour and going up the steps behind. Perfect for a quick meal at any time.

I have eaten here is n several occasions whilst visiting family. Typical Weatherspoons surrounding in old characteristic building. I have never had a bad meal in any Weatherspoons I have been in and this was no different. Great drink prices too! My latest visit was for dinner with family on a Saturday night and was surprised to see a band... More

I had Haggis, Neaps & Tatties and my husband had the Highland Burger ( Beef Burger in a Bun topped with Haggis) both meals turned up quickly and were hot. Barmaid/Waitress/Server came to the table to give my husband his receipt as she'd forgotten at the bar. She also kept the bar and tables clear which also included wiping everything... More

Good food and service. Received our meal quite quickly and was a good decent meal for just a quick stop on the way to groats.
