Okay, when it was Wetherspoons pretty good,, now they have a new owners, and to be honest , they have tried to raise the barrier. Staff are nice people, and hard working.
Good regulars, always upfor a laugh. complimentary newspapers, free book s exchange
The food is okay i normally have a bacon sarnie with tea/coffee you can have as many cups as you want

Went in at 10.40 on a Sunday evening. HUGE sign outside pub saying last orders 11.30pm on Sunday cracking stuff me thinks as I have next day off.
11.03pm order a drink only to be told that they were closed and no more orders. When we mentioned the sign outside we were told that the closing time of 11.30pm also included 30 mins drinking up time so they would not serve after 11pm. I have never heard of this in any pub before I have been to and I am getting on a bit now lol !!!
When I quizzed them on their hours the manager confirmed this again, so just be aware if the closing time at The Baron states 11.30 pm you will not be able to buy a drink after 11pm . So a bit of false advertising to be aware of ....... Or possibly staff who have absolutely no idea about licensing laws !!!
Who knows lol all in all an interesting evening but shall not be going back.

Went there for breakfast, it was a good size and value for money. Disappointed in the new deco of the pub.

We met up with a friend here. Went to order food, but forgot the table number. Pointed out which table it was and was told "that's table 13". I said I was sure this was not the number on the board on the table but was assured this was the right number. We got talking, and before we realised it the best part of an hour had passed and we had not had any food. It turned out that our food had gone to the table that actually had number 13 on it and the people there took it and ate it even though they had not ordered it. We were offered a refund and a free round of drinks but were told the kitchen had closed (even though it was only 8.15) and we could not have any food. At that point someone more senior came by and said "make sure these people get their food!". So, we eventually got food, but one meal came out nearly 15 minutes before the other two. In the meantime we had been offered some nachos by a waitress who clearly had no idea which table had ordered them. The food was actually ok when it finally arrived, and we still did get our refund and free round of drinks. After eating our friend thought she would like a dessert. She went up to ask if she could order a dessert and got a 1 word answer - "No". The best thing that can be said about this experience is that it's given us a good story to tell!
