The food was everything you expect from a Wetherspoons, so good value and no complaints. Beer was top notch, also great Spoons value - pint of Abbot and a pint of White Top winter ale for less than a fiver. And it's a wonderful old building, sympathetically converted into a boozer. I'd be happy to have it as a local.

As we all know. This is very good value for money, usually. It's affordable for teenagers, have a very wide selection of food and drink, and is normally a very nice place to go. However the last time I visited was awful to say the least. Me and friend usually go on occasions and have a good catch up and... More

I often go here for a meal and drinks. The service is always quick and very friendly staff. You know what you are getting with this chain - it's good value as you can choose a drink with your meal and for about an average of eight quid have a decent meal inclusive. Desserts can be added at discounted rates.... More

Beautifully converted former chapel in a quiet location off the High Street. Great food. Really good choice of beers and wines, all at reasonable prices. Great friendly staff. Wherever we go, a Wetherspoon's never lets us down!

Although from the outside this old religious chapel does not seem too good, when inside the full charm and class of the building can be appreciated. The large interior has largely been left alone, the organ pipes are still visible and the walls are adorned in the usual Wetherspoons style by photographs and tales of the local area. The colour...
