“Shakespeare tea”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Went to wether spoons after using the weather spoons app. Today is Shakespeare's birthday. After easily finding a seat we ordered from the bar. The meals arrived quickly and we're hot. The only disappointing things were the portion sizes that could have been a little bigger. The staff were helpful and polite. The boys ordered puddings that we're ok too. Overall experience was good . Toilets were spotless.

glad you had a nice shakepeares tea. If you think the portion size is too small please tell us and we would have done something for you, we usually get comments of the other way of being too much, so something must have been amiss that day. i will remind the staff of the portion control thank you.

“One of the Best Wetherspoons I've Had a Meal”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Although it was a busy Sunday lunchtime we managed to get a table and decided on a traditional Beef Sunday Lunch each,with a good pint of Ruddles bitter to accompany it.
The beer was going down well when our server brought us the best meal I have ever had in a pub!
The beef was hot,tasty and plentiful with lovely fresh potatoes and vegetables to complete the dish. Absolutely delicious and compliments to the chef.
The pub is always busy but service is good and the staff helpful.
When in Stratford have a traditional Sunday lunch to go with the history.

“Not Been to a Wetherspoons before”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

As we were going to the theatre, we did not want to spend serious money on a meal and then having to rush it. We saw the Wetherspoons and thought we'd give it a go. We had a really excllent dinner of curry with a bottle of house red. We really couldn't find any fault with the dinner itself, or the pleasant service we received. Would definately try this chain again. Excellent value for money.

“Breakfast issue”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

When I arrived there was a limited selection thanks to a malfunction - but the staff were pleasant enough and the food arrived quick.
Worth a punt!

“Hmmm”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Food great, once it arrived. Some meals came out, others took a while, one was incomplete! But one man did notice the time difference and mistake, apologised and took over serving us-the first man was a bit rude once I raised a query. The second, friendly helpful man also took over serving most other tables. Desert was lovely and arrived quickly though.
Affordable, appeared clean, would go again

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. I believe I remember this situation and the young man who dealt with you originally.. This was his second shift and still learning and we did take him to one side and explain to him what was wrong with his customer service. He has taken this on board and is still learning shift by shift. So I do apologise for his manner and he is constantly being trained. This job does take quite a while to learn as everyone has different expectations, quite daunting to someone who has never done it before. So once again thank you for telling us, my team always want to improve where they can.
