Good value food especially if you go on a club night. e.g chicken club night got a half of chicken with chips/peas and a pint for about £6.50

Wetherspoons vary so much. This place has the best Wetherspoons food I have had so far. The plates were warm, the food was actually hot and the service was prompt. Lacking an atmosphere but I don't go there to enjoy the atmosphere. I go to have a quick bite to eat with friends.

Visited for breakfast. Quick & friendly service. Really enjoyed the food, everything cooked very well. Member of staff checked back to make sure everything was ok & if there was anything else we needed. Husband was pleased with the free refill on his coffee! Will definitely go back next time we decide to treat ourselves to breakfast out! :-)

A bit beer barn-like for my liking. Went during a beer festival and was disappointed to not know what was on from the selection the flyer had. Staff were not particularly knowledgeable about what they had either and while not the worst service I've had not the friendliest either.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Our staff should have pointed you towards the 'tasting notes' we have available for all festivals we run. I have pointed this out to the team, and we have plenty in stock for this months international ale festival.
