Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I went here with some work colleagues with not very high expectations. I ordered fish and chips which came with a free drink, cost me a tenner, very reasonable I thought. Then the fish and chips arrived, God hep us. In fairness it was quickly...served but the worse fish dish I have ever had. More like batter and chips as the fish was distinctly lacking. The mushy peas were just about edible. You get what you pay for I hear you say, but really?More

To the Irish whose eyes are in 2 different postcodes… it’s not our fault that your parents are cousins. Stop being so uptight and use your brain and not your 3rd eye. I’m sure spoons could do with our custom. Dying pub. Dying staff. Dying...atmosphere - I’m so glad you walked out you made our night… stay toxic queen xoxoMore

Shame I have to even gv it 1 star. Burger cold, chips barley warm. Less than 10 beans with a jacket potato. Ended up with stomach ache. Staff should be on the dole as they don't care. Do not visit this pub I should have...guessed this is the worst wetherspoons in the u.k. because no locals were eating. A disgrace to spoons. Shut it down before drone becomes hospitalized.More

A lovely pub and good food but underwhelming service from female manager. She ignored the dirty tables for ages while chatting behind the bar and service was really slow. Not what it used to be.

Went in for a few drinks before an evening meal elsewhere. The staff were very friendly and polite. We started with. Oral drinks and then tried the cocktails - well done to staff for making it a lovely experience. The only downside, and this is...more to do with the clientele - the gents cubicles were disgusting and I would not be happy cleaning them.More

Unfortunately not. But we do offer an alternative of a Sunday brunch, or lamb shank (both served with a free drink)
