Visited with work colleagues last week. There was eight of us and no one enjoyed the food. Some of the meals were wrong, the food arrived at long intervals but worst of all the food was terrible. Some overlooked in fact burnt. Will never go back.
However the real ales were good

Went into Henglers for some drinks and a bite to eat on Saturday. It took forever to find a table and when we did, no one cleared away the empties or plates... never mind to think to wipe the table down.
Once we had decided what we wanted we headed round to the bar to place our order.. its a pity the one girl serving down that way ignored us..
Eventually we were served by someone who came down that end of the bar to fill a pint. Ordered our four meals and then we waited...
They eventually came and they were lukewarm, my chicken balmoral was so tough around the edges you couldn't eat it. Overall, the food was poor and lacking in any flavour. I know its pub grub but you at least expect them to get the basics right.

Dont know why I go to wetherspoons, all their bars are the same, you stand about waving your money in the air, waiting for someone to finally smile and serve you, pure torture you could lose the will to live sometimes waiting to be served, i think they might make more money if they employed more staff ! but maybe thats too simple, the food is fairly average however they do provide value meal deals inexpensively, suggest they provide a waiting area with magazines while you wait to be served instead of trying to work out the best place to stand for service, not a place to socialise as you spend most of the time standing waiting to be served
Tip best place to stand is always at the till.

Have visited many Weatherspoons and normally enjoy the food. However visited this restauarant on early Satruday afternoon. Staff got the order wrong (bringing our main meals bfoere our starters) then had the cheek to present us with our main meals after it that were cold. On the plus side, they were apologetic but by that time it was ruined and we had to leave as attending a show at the theatre

Weatherspoons chain pub/restaurant serving food all day. Separate family part. Always very busy as it's on the Charing Cross end of Sauchiehall Street. Good deals on bottles of wine and food not too bad - a better choice than similar chains.
