You can never be disappointed with a Whetherspoons. Ate here today as visiting Dover and wanted somewhere quick and cheap without worrying about quality. We fed 3 of us a good size, tasty meal (complete with drink) for less than £20. The price is cheap and it's not a gourmet meal, but for the price there really is nothing to... More

Wetherspoons does not claim to be a high class restaurant, but it does provide a very extensive selection of food. We visited on a Thursday which meant I could select a Balti curry with rice and a naan and a free drink - all for well under ten pounds. All the dishes ordered came quite promptly and all at the...

Had a late lunch here which was lovely and served quickly, friends had the £3.95 breakfast the next day, they were very pleased. Has a stairlift for the few stairs up to more tables and the loos.

I visited the eight bells on bank holiday Monday as I was driving through the area. The pub is in the high street and when I visited at 4.30pm there were still plenty of tables to sit at. I ordered a pint of Pepsi and a pint of shandy to drink along with their chilli con carne. The 2 people... More

A busy pub, all staff were friendly and the food was of the standard I expect. Some of the tables were left with empty plates and glasses on so looked a little untidy.

My son and called in here on Saturday last and enjoyed a good pint and some pub grub. The layout of the place is very good and the staff were very friendly. We would be happy to go again.

Invited a friend for a birthday lunch. 3 people ordered rump steaks medium/well-done. Steaks arrived virtual rare lots of grizzle and food luke warm. Complained at bar only to be told by bar staff that they never order the steaks when having a meal because the steaks are always hit and miss. A total waste of £30. Would have been... More
