“Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a good place to go if you are after a cheap pint or meeting place for a first drink. The service in here is friendly, however at time you can find yourself waiting a while. This is also the only pub I've ever been in (and I've been to a lot of pubs) that has a single file queue system, quite bizarre!

The food is your standard Wetherspoons stuff, you get what you pay for, but if you are on a budget and don't expect to be wowed, then this is as good as any. I've eaten here quite a lot, but this was just me as a poor student getting a beer and burger or steak night deal. It was more to be social than for the exquisite cuisine.. They've only messed my order up once in about 4 years, but some of my friends have been less lucky, the mistakes are always corrected though.

Inside is spacious, furnished well, with plenty of seating - it really is good for a Spoons. Outside there is a non-smoking beer garden, which is connected to the train station (the Wetherspoons is the old train station building).

“Starting point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Haha what can you say about Spoons? well the only place in the world where you queue for the bar. But does have quite a good selection of beers and cheap drinks the best place to start off on any night out.
breakfast is always quick and a great offer. The Thursday curry club is great too even if it seems to be an Iceland curry. You cant really complain about the food with such a fantastic price though guys. Beer festival is always a good time to visit.
Excellent staff
