Classic Wetherspoons

The food and drinks here are very reasonably priced, large portions and delivered quickly. Good central location and atmosphere. The only downside is people smoking when sitting outside to eat. There is a non-smoking section which we use if possible!

Lovely pub where you very often find ladies there alone with a coffee on market day. The staff are excellent with always a friendly word, even when they are very busy. The food is cheap and cheerful. Also good coffee. Clean Ladies toilet - don't know about gents! Visit on a regular basis.

Eaten here often with family, always a busy pub, which speaks volumes to me. Food is simple and well prepared, service is very quick and courteous staff. You really cant go wrong if you are looking for pub grub an drinks at very reasonable prices.

Have drunk and eaten here many times and most times have been very good. Occasionally, when they're particularly busy, we've had to sit at a table before it has been cleared, sometimes it can be noisey. The main bar area has some private nooks which are in high demand. The main area is followed by a raised area with additional... More

Big spoon pub fan always top value was served very quickly & all was what expect but felt lack of interaction from obviously rushed off feet staff Gives it more Mcd's feel than some especially as so full & busy group had to sit separate tables.Does whats required but not one for a cosy chill out in

Stopped in just for lunch. One of the indications of the quality/value of a restaurant is its "busy-ness", and this place was busy! it took a while to find somewhere to sit, but it was worth the wait. Food very basic, but good, hot and reasonably priced.

I tend to visit this pub quite a bit with friends as it's cheap and cheerful. Clubs on different nights are really good value. Steaks can be a bit hit and miss. Really good puddings as well. Friendly staff too!
