We're great fans of Wetherspoon pubs - always great food value, and whenever we're out for the day, we try to find one.
However, our visit to the Spa Lane Vaults was a slight disappointment. My wife ordered, as usual, the salmon salad, which has always arrived with a fair-sized grilled salmon fillet on a bed of salad leaves, cucumber and tomatoes. This time, however, the salmon arrived completely mashed-up (fragmented) and mixed in within the salad. This looked less than appetising, and was lukewarm and rubbery. My wife said 'This is tinned', and I agreed - she went and spoke to the waiter, and was assured that it was not tinned, but it was the 'new policy' of JDW to serve it like this. Having seen many salmon fillets, we both feel that we know how a freshly-grilled fillet 'flakes' when cut - and this salmon was not like that! If this is the 'new policy' then - memo to JDW - please change it back!!

Been several times during the week. The service was always prompt and the food was delivered quickly. Good selection of beers. Close to the spire with car parking round the corner. A nice pub, will be back here at some point.

Great array of drinks & Service with a smile, but average food, chicken burgers a little dry. Toilets clean.

I went here with my son for a quick lunch whilst we were Xmas shopping in Chesterfield. We got a good deal with a panini and a wrap accompanied by a pint each for less than £10. We had problems accessing the wi-fi so just resorted to 3G. My son cut his finger on his chair and the cashier did not get the order right first time, but the food was delivered promptly and the table was cleared once we had finished. As we were not there very long it is difficult to say much more. It did the job of providing a tasty good value lunch.
