If your expectations arn't too high, you won't be disappointed. Smelliest toilets I've visited for a long time. A bit short of bar staff.More

conversion that has been well done and without wetherspoons doing these transformations there would be a lot more derelict buildings on our streets-ale as always with spoons was well priced and spot on

You can't fault Wetherspoons for cheerfulness, good standards of food and great value. This is a nice tasteful restoration of a cinema and is well worth a visit.

Three good quality meals with drinks for £30. This is a wheatherspoons pub so don't expect fancy or fine dining. It is however great value for money and a decent meal. Always very busy and a good pint on tap.
