“Great food and service”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a recently opened Wetherspoons and is now one of the busiest bars in Cleveleys. We have been several,times with friends and family. On such an occasion we asked about booking a table for XMas Eve, they don't normally take bookings but accommodated our party of 12. I ordered an ANgus Steak with a pint included and it was the best steak I have had in a long time.. The management and staff were superb on the night and really looked after us. We had some children with us and they were allowed to stay reasonably late on such an important night. Well done WEtherspoons , excellent seerice

“Very, very slow bar service”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Food & beer always good & good value,but can wait an age to get served & don't try to get served like I did once @ a minute to 11 (barmaid had her back to the customers playing with her hair, whilst her colleague rang time!)

“poor pre prepared food and service”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have previously been to this family pub, however on this occation it was terrible!!!
As a party of four, two ordered starters.. whilst the two from our party enjoyed their starters the mains was brought out for the other two. Hmm, as family we all like to eat our main courses together!!
After this we waited, waited and waited and then managed to stop a member of staff to ask where the other two mains were as the other two had nearly finished their meal. The steaks which were then brought to us were like a solid sinue of grissle and fat, which could not of been missed at the cooking process. however substandard food was served nether the less!
Its not often I ask for a refund but on this occation I did. poor service, poor food quality. Bad expierence.

Quick service. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfast & drinkable coffee. Just wish there was a car park.
