Restaurant details
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We eat here frequently as it's not bad value and it's easy to get a table. The food can be hit an miss as to the temperature, the service consistently slow in terms of not enough staff, no speed amongst the staff except the mature lady waiting tables who has blonde hair , and the tables not always as clean as could be.

Usually quite a decent atmosphere, always a fair few folk in.

The food - same as all spoonies I expect in terms of choice and portion sizes. My partner enjoys the burgers and hot dog, I've enjoyed a variety of meals. Chips often a little under cooked.

We decided to have a meal out as we did not want to cook,oh how I wished we had not.The chicken was dry bacon overcooked and everything was swimming in B.Q.sauce not a pleasant experience.The pub itself is dark and depressing well another place of our list to have a meal.The only thing going for this place is the choice of ales.

Delicious well-cooked breakfast. Everything was tasty and piping hot. As always in Wetherspoons it was brilliant value for money ( less than £10 for 2 breakfasts, 2 drinks and a portion of toast). Excellent waitress - Rach..... good friendly Yorkshire hospitality (that's praise indeed from a Lancastrian). Thank you.

We took the Grandchildren for an early evening meal, it was pretty busy and therefore had a very good buzz, really nice atmosphere. The food was such great value for money and tasty. We had an excellent bottle of wine at a reasonable price. The kids meals included a drink and a packet of fresh fruit. The decoration and ambiance are lovely and we shall certainly be returning again very soon.

We visited Wetherspoons for Sunday breakfast following an previous good breakfast experience for the money. To find a completely different experience it was terrible...cold plates, cold food, poor service despite them been quiet. We didn't plan to visit again, however found ourselves meeting family there one tea time, I had warned them but it was the only place to meet at this time, we found the service again to be very poor and i am fully aware of the type of eatery it is but feel they should be able to manage the basics!!! I asked for a well done steak and received a burnt cremated piece of meat, a miserable waitress who had no idea what customer service is!! The other staff did not appear to know what they were doing and no evidence of the bar/ restaurant being managed or care if the customers left happy or not!!!! It is a real shame as the setting is nice But Will definitely NOT be visiting here again!!!!!!
