Went in for breakfast at 10.15, we had to clear a table that had used plates and cups on, table was sticky and dirty but I had some Wetwipes in my bag. Breakfasts came and was not at all appetizing,most of it was cold, eggs were missing half of the egg white and it looked like it had been thrown on the plate. I have visited here a few times and it is always disappointing. Wetherspoons in wimborne Man in the wall pub is much Better.

Went there for breakfast this morning and there were 6 of us in the group. It was very busy in there as it usually is at breakfast time. Unfortunately there were lots of tables that had dirty plates and cups still on them including the one we sat at. We asked a lady working there if we could get our table wiped as it was all sticky and she said she would but didn’t come back. We ordered our food and one of the people in our group swapped a couple of items and added extra toast. When the breakfast was brought to our table we were then told they had no toast or bread which I think we should have been informed of when I ordered the breakfast. The girl then told us the closest thing they could offer was a muffin so we said ok as we needed something. 5 minutes later and still no muffins and the girl was bringing other people’s breakfasts out to them. I went over and asked where the muffins were, she then brought out 2 small muffins and I queried if that was all we got between 3 of us. She then brought another one out. Not very good considering we should have had 6 slices of toast. What’s even more frustrating is that right next door to the pub is an M&S food shop and next to that is a Tesco express both of which were open, they should have sent someone in there to buy some bread or at least tell people that they didn’t have any when ordering their food. Not impressed!

We were staying nearby in a B&B for a couple of nights and this Wetherspoons was recommended to us on the Thursday night for dinner.

We were quite surprised just how busy it was for 6,30 and they all seemed to be mainly locals, which is usually a good yardstick of a place being good if locals use it.

The pub is a typical Wetherspoons in terms of layout and decor. The toilets up in the gods etc

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The menu was easy to navigate. I ordered the food at the bar and as is usually the case, was quite pleasantly surprised just how cheap Wetherspoons is! Mind you, the model must work, as it was heaving.

We were really shocked how quick our food arrived, considering how busy it was. They must have a really well staffed kitchen and a great efficient system. Once again, a reason why people return time after time i suppose.

The food didn’t disappoint. It was absolutely spot on and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this pub. Great food, great staff, great service - what more could you ask for,

Well done Wetherspoons!

Having reviewed this place previously, you do get what you pay for! Bar service tends to be soooooooo slow! Once ordered, the food service is quick - microwave cooking usually is quick, right? I’m now reducing my rating as dogs are no longer welcome in the garden! Large sign but no explanation.
As a dog owner, will be avoiding the Blackwater Stream in future. Fortunately Broadstone has much nicer places to eat and drink. Goodbye Wetherspoons. Hello to dog friendly pubs.
Big Thumbs down to Wetherspoons but don’t expect you to care.
