Recently ate here over three nights, food service & staff good but a few points need to be addressed.

1 suggest you eat inside due to pigeons & seagulls flying around taking food from tables & leaving their " deposits " all over the place.


2 the staff are all working very hard to maintain efficient running of the establishment but are clearly run off their feet


Would suggest to the" higher chain of command in wetherspoons" that more staff are employed to help the dedicated staff that are already there.

I visited one evening then came back for breakfast before catching a train the next day. The breakfast was never going to be gourmet from here, but it came quickly and was substantial for what you pay. The quality was better than I expected from Wetherspoons and the chap who served me was friendly enough, although some training would help all the staff here learn how to at least pretend they like their job.

The evening before was not so good. Wetherspoons never seem to have enough bar staff when I visit, although I have never had a bad pint of real ale from one and you can't moan at the prices. A smile from a friendly barmaid doesn't cost anything but you'll be lucky to get one here. With the exception of an Australian guy who was excellent, the rest of them looked like they would much rather be somewhere else. Maybe they should be?

First off I have to say I am not a lover of what I call factory pubs and I have had some pretty poor meals in some Wetherspoons in the past, however this place is different. I have visited twice now and on both occasions the food and beer has been top notch and superb value.

Small portions, staff who don't know what they are doing, but it's cheap and you get what you pay for.
