“Hitty Missy”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Sometimes have breakfast here, it can be good, it can be bad. The mixed grill used to be good but I wish they served "proper chips" Blooming frozen things should be banned

“Great Value Breakfast”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Only ever had breakfast there and that was very good food and good value. I have revisited several times. Although I like a beer watching someone have a pint with breakfast is a little beyond my taste.

Reviewed December 22, 2012

Went on a curry night, but ordered late and many of the curries no longer available.But what we had was good, and the price with a beer was reasonable.

“The Missing Malibu Snatcher”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Visited this pub on a Saturday night in a group of eight "mature" people.The bar area is a nightmare to get served after 11pm as you find it difficult to catch the eye of the servers and the "regulars" seem to know where to go to get served quicker.Later on in the night the "glass collectors" decided to pick up our malibu drinks thinking they were finished ( sorry they are not it may be nice if you had asked).One of our party went to the bar to sort out the return or replenishment of the drinks, what ensued was a young manager came over to our party and asked the person who went to the bar to leave(he was with about 2 or 3 doormen) some sort of customer service skills you possess! The rest of the party left rather disappointed by the attitude of this young manager and his "mob".Customer service skills ZERO!! He did not even have a n answer or an apology for the drinks taken from the table.

“Great Breakfast Here”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Stopped here for breakfast-it's a Wetherspoons/LLoyds No 1 bar. Very spacious. I can imagine it gets very crowded in the evenings with the young crowd. Great breakfast, above average for Wetherspoons, which are sometimes serevd a bit cold. (only £2.99) Recommended.
