Its a Wetherspoon, so, pretty much, you know what to expect. Food is not bad, good value, especially the drink and a meal deals. Table service is perfunctory, though the bar staff were good. Another time we had breakfast and that was terrific value, 90 pence for a coffee and free refills - hard to beat and fantastic value when... More

Not a great selection for Sunday in a food pub. No Sunday carvery or Sunday dinner on the menu is very basic

We had an evening meal there. The food was fine; nothing fancy, standard "Wetherspoon"-type fare, but well cooked and very cheap.

Went here yesterday for there steak night. We managed to get seated quickly and order our food at the bar. Didn't try the order at the table app as the prices weren't right but they might discount at the end so that could be my fault. I had the 8oz Angus steak with chips and a Stilton sauce, my wife...

Visited 9/04 evening with a few friends for the first time. Found it to be extremely busy which was a surprise. Very comfortable atmosphere however they could do with more staff. One of the young staff with the short hair (possibly a manager as she wasn't in specific uniform) looked rushed off of her feet, however still did such a... More

Usual choice of ale, the one we tried was nothing special, can't even remember what it was! We didn't eat, but by the look of it there was the usual 'cheap & cheerful' Weatherspoon's menu. By the décor and outer appearance of the building I guess it's been an old theatre. It was however, clean & didn't have uncollected plates... More

Arranged to meet friends for a meal and because we'd been recommended the hat and feathers we decided to give it a go. Prices were good, food was ok. There were clean plates from most of our party so that says a lot.
