A typical weatherspoons pub, the food was good, as per usual the queue was long to order the food and tables were slow to be cleaned away.....short staffed?? But yes for a budget meal and drink it's good value for money

I arrived at the Wheatsheaf yesterday morning at 8.10, in time for breakfast before a conference starting at 9. I was greeted at the door by staff informing they opened at 9 am, I told them their web site stated 8 am as opening time and they said they knew it was wrong and needs updating, I notice it is...

Like most, this wetherspoon has your affordable booze and food, tasty and quick. But the staff here are the best I've seen over the country, very friendly, love to chat when they can, great service and quick, Hard working group. The decor of this building is a bit dated, toilet facilities are good overall great atmosphere and comfort.

Decided to go out for breakfast for a change, and as the Wheatsheaf is a Witherspoon decided to give it a try. My othef half had a full English, while I tried the eggs benedict with Salmon. Must admit really tasty on all counts, and with coffed top up, good value. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Possibility the best pub in the Port for price and service. Great beer garden. Good to catch up with friends without having to deal with drunks. Occasionally the police van turns up, but no real trouble.

You really can't fault a Wetherspoons breakfast. Everything is very reasonably priced and the place is spacious and clean.

My daughter has to eat there the first night of her visit from Canada. We love their food & the price is always right, including your choice of drink.

12 or so months ago, this pub was in terminal decline. No management. Poorly trained staff etc. Now, thanks to Lea M, Lee E, Lee M and all of the mainly new staff, it is a pleasure to visit this pub. However, special praise to Michelle J***s, you are a star. Luv u girl xxx Mike Hull
