We go here for burgers instead of Burger King over the road, usually works out cheaper and the burgers are much nicer!

Still great value for money, and excellent selection of local ale, better layout inside and plenty of tall tables. These are great for people watching

It was very busy but the staff coped well, serving food and cleaning tables in a timely manner. We didn't have long to wait for our food and it was what you come to expect from Wetherspoons. All in all, a warm and friendly atmosphere.
