This is a Weatherspoon Pub - The food was excellent, quickly prepared and very nicely served by a friendly young man. 2 Main courses and 2 Glasses of nice Wine £10, That's a bargain!!

Building: nice
Food: spoons standard
Staff: mixed but mostly ok to nice
Best time to visit: before the beer starts flowing so a great breakfast spot.
Its ok. You get what you pay for. Steak night is great. If you want much better there are alternatives but spoons is popular because there's a demand for cheap ish, ok ish food and beer, standardised service and people like eating out.
PS, the coffee is actually great.
PPS, like our reviews are going to make a jot of difference!

Went for a quick bite to eat for lunch with family and faced awful service mainly from the team leader there. Firstly they'd ran out of burgers but didn't tell us until after we'd ordered and then when the wrong order turned up they tried to charge us more.

Not the first time I've had dire service here and the attitude of the staff has a lot to be desired. Needless to say we won't be going back.

Just the same deal as anywhere else in the country with this chain - cheap food and beer, very slow service with the least number of staff available at busy times (i.e 13.00 Saturday), pretty average quality of beer, just nothing special to say really. This one is clearly converted from a redundant department store or similar.

Handy for a quick stop-off all the same though.

Great beer selection, likewise choice of reasonably-priced tasty food. Fast, friendly service. VERY busy and noisy on a Friday night but the upstairs family area is quieter and has more space.
