As a wetherspoons, this is pretty much a safe bet. They are better at burgers and steaks than the slightly more adventurous items on the menu, though.

We risked the Mech Elephant despite the reviews. Well worth it. We had the Eggs Benedict and the pancakes/bacon with coffees. All for little more than £7. We will have breakfast there again.

Ok the drinks are cheap. But nothing else is good about the place, its run down and smelly. Our food come out stone cold, we complained and the waiter did offer to have another meal and did give us a round of drinks. Wont be returning

Apart from needing a bit of new decor, the new menu is good and the food excellent
