Like any other Weatherspoons, this branch serves up cheap drinks, cheap food and typical chavvy behaviour from all sorts, young, old, even the near-dead. I wouldn't recommend this Pub if you're looking for a quiet, relaxed evening - The Grapes is far more better for that! Instead you'll be entertained by old age pensioners who haven't bathed, young mothers who have no class, and those who save up their weekly benefit money to splash out on a pint of larger and a glass of Rose! Welcome to the world of Weatherspoons ladies and gentleman! On the weekends, it gets pretty busy with security on the door (the norm), the atmosphere during this period consists of 18-26 youngsters who are looking to get hammered before they roll on to the next club/bar/party. A great place if you enjoy this sort of entertainment mixed with foul language and girls with next to nothing on! I'd pass!

In saying that however, the food here compared to all the other Weatherspoons across the nation is actually quite good. Although mostly frozen and pre-made, just a slap in the oven or microwave, you won't be disappointed. I come here all the time for lunch (when I can that is) and have never been let down. It is great value for money and I would recommend it as a lovely place on a Sunday afternoon!

I'd let you guys decide for yourself.........

I'm not sure if this chain has improved dramatically on a national level but the food at this particular pub/ restaurant is more than acceptable. On a Tuesday they have a steak club night where for about £6 you get a very good steak and chips with a drink thrown in.For non-meat eaters there is a salmon steak.Thursdays is curry club night where, again, for a few pounds they serve a curry- vegetarian if required - and a drink.Great value for money: more for a casual meal out rather than for a special occasion but none the worse for that.

excellent value and quality breakfast 0900 14/12. Shame that customers are permitted to continually swear in a loud voice with no intervention from the staff who do not have control.

Quick service, cheap price, typical pub grub really. Good for a pint of ale and something to eat at lunch though sometimes a bit noisy.

Good value for money, food is usually cooked and presented well, service is quick and freindly. A good place for a cheap meal with family or friends.
