“Standard pub fare with tired decor”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is really good value for money for fast standard pub grub, but the decor and interior is very tired. The cloakrooms upstairs are in serious need of attention but suffice for the need. fast service and good value for money- but very little atmosphere. Cheap and cheerful but not somewhere to linger.

“Blehhh!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Food microwaved, felt ill several hours after eating here. Pub smells of an old stained beer mat. Staff are friendly and happy to help, but that's where the good points end. Toilets are upstairs and not kept well - light out, no toilet paper etc. Utter dive!

“Good value and nice!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is a superb place for lunch. The Chicken Ceasar sallad are good (i've tried some 40+ all over the world, this is top 10 although bacon should be included at no extra cost!). The wine is excellent value, good real ale, what else can you ask foor to this very low prices. Best place donwtown Congleton for sure. We have visited a couple of times during the last two years, always better than expected compared to the low price. Try it, you will not be dissapointed!

“Exactly What It Says On The Tin”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I was slightly surprised to read Boysally's review: "No music or anything. Was really boring". With Wetherspoon's pubs you really do get what it says on the tin. You KNOW that there will be no music or loud TVs. Boring to some but heaven to others. I popped in the other day and had the Peri Peri Chicken. Excellent half a smallish chicken and chips with little tubs of coleslaw and spicy sauce (£5.99). I didn't like my beer much but that was a personal thing. It was perfectly prepared and served. A nice meal in a nice pub.
