“Disappointing”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We thought we'd give this Wetherspoons a try as we usually get a good value meal. Although busy the place was clean and the bar staff pleasant. The food was brought quickly for what appeared to be a busy lunchtime. However, the meal itself was disappointing. We had both chosen a jacket potato with pulled pork. We have had it in a number of Wetherspoons and it has always been filling. Unfortunately, this was not the case here. The portion size seemed smaller, both in the potato size and the the amount of filling. There didn't even appear to be the same amount of salad served with it. Sadly , we'll not be returning.

“Very good food and good service”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I use this chain A LOT and so far have visited probably 80 different ones. Some stand out and some stand out for the wrong reasons. This one sort of slotted in-between. The food was good standard quality and the pub itself was clean. I judge most spoons by the toilets because I find it important that everything is functioning. If it is there is a good chance that the health and hygiene of both staff and customers is high. If that is high then the food side should be high too. The toilets were in fair condition and everything was stocked up and worked. Nothing else really stands out apart from the staff being pleasant and the tables cleared very soon after I had finished.

“Excellent value and food”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

You can never go wrong with a wetherspoons and this one was no exception. The food was delicious and very good value. Whio would complain about a bottle of wine for £8.39?! Definitely what we needed after a long day seeing the sights. All the staff were friendly and alwaya had a smile of their faces. I had steak and it was cooked to order perfectly. Thank you very much!
