One thing you can absolutely guarantee is that Wetherspoons maintain standards, anywhere in the UK. It's why we all use them. Breakfast has always been above standard, and I have used Caerphilly wetherpoons ALOT for brekkie. However, and I'll keep it constructive... recently over 2...More

We are regular visitors to Caerphilly as my 2 grandchildren live nearby. Whenever we are in the area we always head for the Malcolm Uphill. The breakfasts hear are always wholesome and tasty. Add to that unlimited lattes and you have an ideal breakfast. Great!

As far as Wetherspoons go this isn’t bad. It’s always busy, yet the food is (90% of the time) usually pretty good and offers great value for money. Cleanliness can sometimes be an issue here due to the high numbers that visit.
