The lady looking after the cleaning was snowed under. There seemed to be lots of staff doing nothing. You give your order then get told to hover round the order desk till it's made up. What's it like when it's really busy. Always seem to not have something in stock/ left. Didn't have ice cream for ages. Can't believe they... More

Visited mcdonalds as a quick lunch option as I had just been to hospital appointment and had 30 minutes before I had to be at school to watch our daughter in her harvest festival. I ordered a new Thai sandwich meal. I took one bite of the sandwich then noticed mould on the bun. Fair to say I removed the... More

This place is no worse or better than any other McDonald's, but they shouldn't be allowed to call it fast food. Always slow inside or at the drive thru and recent refurb only seems to have made this worse.

Trying to change an order with Kimberley on Drive Thru meant that we had to drive around AGAIN and replace our order. I cam only inagine that this is customer service with wgat I can inly imagine being on par with being in Auschwitz. Poor bastards who work here clearly stick to ridiculous rules made by their very own Hitler.

Regularly buy from here, however some items are far more expensive than say the Byker mcdonalds. 20 chicken nuggets are £1 dearer. The food is usually decent and relatively fresh. Staff are mainly nice friendly. Overall would have been 4* but 3 due to the increased prices of other local mcdonalds.

In its restaurant class, I think this McDonald's is worthy of four (and perhaps five) stars. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is fresh. The restaurant (and bathrooms) are kept clean and tidy. Has free wifi. Recently used as a place to work from whilst I waited for MOT to be completed at nearby car dealership. Member of staff spotted... More
