Nice big pub, spotless loos, view over the river and harbour from the back...although not a lot to see if I am honest.

We ate there twice, food up to the usual Wetherspoons offering...however not a massive selection of real ales on the two days we were there....lots "Available Soon"

I went in here with a friend while visiting Wick in October 2013 - good value for money pub grub and real ales. I had a nice steak, cooked just how I like it.
I think this is one of the better establishments in the Wetherspoon's chain. Cheap and cheerful without being cheap and nasty.

Basic pub fayre yes I know at reasonable prices but the fayre has become much more basic of late. I ordered a rare steak (nearly a tenner) but it arrived well done and tough. I sent it back and another arrived nearer well done than medium rare AND chef had cut the steak open halfway through to check for rareness. I know many who would send it back even for being cut open. Knowing it was not rare he sent it to my table nevertheless. I ate it as my family had nearly finished their meal. Tasted just ok but not worth a tenner. Fresh peas were mushy and overcooked and the chips were luke warm. Not eating in any wetherspoons again. I'd rather give my cash to an independent non chain place.

It's a Wetherspoon, so you know what you are getting. Basic pub fayre, a great choice of drinks ( including really good guest ales at a fantastic price ) and really good value for money.
For those of us on a business budget it fits the bill.

Large portions, well cooked pub food. Nothing fancy and wouldn't pass for a special night out but tasty and filling and good service.
