The Diamond Tap is one of our favourite Wetherspoons for breakfast but have been let down on the past two visits which has prompted a review. Last visit we ordered eggs Benedict to be told they had sold out. This was 10am. Went to the Tap today and ordered Eggs Benedict only yo be told they had no Hollandaise Sauce.... More

I've been here a couple of times and it's always good. Food price is reasonable and food is good. I'm not so happy about some changes done lately but all in all is a nice place to grab lunch or dinner. Staff people is always nice.

Had a fun Friday here and best of all the drinks are a bargain. Good music, lively atmosphere. Only negative point is the bouncers/door staff were rude but maybe I'm getting old and that's just how it is.

Every Father's Day and on my Birthday the children and grandchildren bring me here for breakfast. The food comes out quickly, there's loads of it and it's tasty. The staff don't mind us moving a few tables together and are good with the grandchildren. The best bit is the price, really good value

Pub in the Newbury area, great manager Alan and some lovely staff. Good prices and turns into a club on the weekend with good deals and friendly door staff. Only fault is it's a little dark!

The food in the Diamond Tap is always well presented, well cooked and tasty. I go to this Wetherspoon pub about once a week usually on a Friday, the staff are helpful, welcoming, and comes with a smile at no extra cost!!!. The food quality has been consistently good, freshly cooked and served quickly. I recommend The Diamond Tap if... More

My friend tried the veggie wellington meal which he said was quite nice. I had the quorn chilli which was ok but didn't have much quorn in it. The garlic bread was nice the chips were a bit funny tasting. Staff were friendly & the place was completely full yet we did get the food very quick.

Ate here with my husband and 2 kids. Food was plentiful and good value for money. Kids enjoyed the free wifi which enabled us parents to relax.

Whilst out shopping with my daughter on a hot sunny day I fancied a pint before heading home and being a fan of Wetherspoons we visited this pub for a quick drink. I have to say that this is a decent sized pub with good staff, I didn't have to wait long to be served and, as always, the drinks... More
