“Average for Wetherspoons”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

The food in here is okay, nothing special and the beer selection is pretty good but lacking. It's always packed and the people frequenting here aren't the nicest of people, the atmosphere is pretty poor which, all credit to the staff try to control but they come across as the antagonists. I can't fault the bar itself, everything was good, but the atmosphere is not somewhere I enjoyed being.

Food pre-cooked, frozen and then not defrosted before serving! Worst Customer service skills known to man! Stay well away

“Nice food and good staff”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Ate here prior to going to the Phones 4U Arena. Excellent food good service and as usual with Wetherspoons sensible prices. Being a CAMRA member the beers were also on fine form (as usual in any Wetherspoons/Lloyds bars), so the 50p off a pint vouchers came in handy. Due to visit again for 2 more shows at the arena in December and will have no qualms in having a few beers and food prior to the show

“Superb service”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We often eat at Wetherspoons and Lloyds No.1 have the roughly the same menu. The only difference being that Lloyds play music whereas Wetherpoons don't.

We dined at around 6pm on a Tuesday. The place was very busy and we were lucky - grabbing a table just as another couple were leaving.

A problem we constantly face at these pubs is ordering food at the bar. Who's first ? People push in and it's so frustrating.
This was different. Staff were practically falling over themselves to take our order - even though the bar was busy.

Food took about 10 minutes to arrive and was hot and tasty. The staff were continually patrolling the floor - looking for empty plates and glasses.

The only downside was the music - but this is a feature of Lloyds !
