So disappointed during a recent visit to Aberystwyth's the old station, where we were asked to leave as dogs are not welcome in the outside eating area.

Waiter served me my tikka masala with rice still in its microwave bag! Took it back to the bar and asked if they were being serious and the guy behind the bar said "oh, that doesn't look good" and he ripped the bag open on...the bar (no hand hygiene) and emptied it on my plate.More

Just had drinks, so good range of real ales and lagers at good prices. Experience is like most Wetherspoons that I have been in but it is worth a visit just to see the building with its outside inside patio area and great architecture of...the station.More

We ordered the half chicken from the steak special menu today and it was very disappointing. My daughter had chips and I had a pathetic side salad. It was supposed to come with coleslaw but there wasn’t any and we weren’t offered an alternative side....I’d also ordered the roasted veg which was also tiny. Chicken was overdone and very dry but when I mentioned all this to a staff member nothing was done. The staff did seem very preoccupied and inattentive today. I would rather buy chicken from KFC around the corner. My granddaughter enjoyed her Childrens spaghetti Bolognese very though despite the staff not delivering her fruit pieces. Hence why only 2 stars.More

First time back in Aberystwyth since covid and as usual straight off the train into the Wetherspoons before we went to our hotel. It was a fairly busy Tuesday afternoon. Informed that the kitchen was closed for half hour while they put their delivery away....Not a great start but we ordered some drinks via the app and waited. Drinks came quickly and the server was lovely, and informed us the food would be available to order at 5:30. We ordered some meals via the app, and some extra drinks. Food came out quickly, and before the next set of drinks! The food looked really good. I go to a lot of Wetherspoons and I have to say that might be the best looking, and tasting fish I’ve ever had. The curry was great, and came with mango chutney! We stayed for about 45 minutes and the place filled up so quickly. My only complaint was there wasn’t any toilet roll in one of the cubicles. Can’t wait to come back!More

4 of us went and 3 had the fish, chips and mushy pea special (3.99 each)and 1 had the small steak and chips. Excellent value for decent size fish portions and service was quick.

By far my favourite Wetherspoons pub! Always good availability for drinks and food and there are also plugs in the booths for you to be able to charge any electronic devices. The only thing really that lets this pub down is sometimes the lack of...cleanliness, though understandable when it’s busy, sometimes it isn’t and you see stuff all over empty tables.More

Tables everywhere strewn with plates, food & glasses. Lots of staff bringing orders out then returning empty handed! Cleared our own space and wiped down. Went to bar but nobody serving. ‘All beer festival beers on the App’. No! Only 2 real ales on the...app: Ordered one and got bought a substitute as one of those two was off! If you want a good pub in Aberystwyth, please head for the Ship & Castle!More
