3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Much like the one in Penarth, Wales, although nowhere near as bad, this pub has very little charm, but had a wonderful selection of beers available. The outside is being renovated, but isn't the most picturesque of settings; it is opposite a small roundabout. Wifi is exceptional though - it still worked 150m away from the bar.

Wetherspoons always offer good value food and drinks and this establishment is no different, however ambience also plays a part in enjoying leisure time with a meal and a drink and this establishment does not rate here at all. A total makeover is desperately needed to make it inviting and a pleasant location to to, in the meantime I am... More
