“It's okay..”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

If you disregard the sticky counter-tops and tables as in every bar in the UK, it's okay for a drink and it's more than okay for a casual lunch or dinner. Would recommend if at the printworks.

“Good service”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Went to llyods for a quick lunch. Micheal served us at the bar and was very attentive and enthusiastic to all the guests there. I had the carbonara which wasnt anything spectacular but not awful. Portion size could do with a cut, far too big. We were asked if everything was ok shortly afyer recieving our meals which again was attentive. Overall fine experience. Micheal on the bar is a credit.

“Very poor effort. Non existent service.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 via mobile

Having had food in the Wetherspoons on Deansgate we opted for Lloyds 1 as it would be a decent place to sit and chat as a family without the usual pub distractions.
The very first thing we were asked is if we had any children with us. As my son was there this seemed a particularly stupid question. We were then told we had to be eating in order to stay, but when I informed the server that we had in fact, just eaten at the other Wetherspoons it made no difference.
Wethers, sort yourselves out, having rules is all well and good but firstly, at least employ peoply who know how to speak to customers, then employ a little flexibility.
If you want a cheap drink, spend more and go elsewhere. We did, and found Waxy O'Connors to be a massive improvement.

“Loved it”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Me and my friend went to the Odeon cinema to watch a movie and then we wanted to eat out somewhere. We decided to go here, because we'd never been before.
Food was lovely, I had a fish and chips meal.
I'll be returning soon :)
