“Manky”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

How disappointing we ordered our food waited 35 min mixed grill was burnt chicken burger came breaded after asking for it to be grilled and butterflied.. Onion rings were oily and soggy chips were cold, pepper sauce was horrid, manager and waitress were very helpful but could not seem to beable to tell the chef she was doing a disgusting job. I'm in the industry and would of told her I will not take it out a waitress has the right to refuse and accept what comes out the kitchen???? Also the chef seems to have no concistancy I got one piece of bacon that was burnt and one that was half cooked CONCISTANCY is the key and your KITCHEN is the HEART of your business... So it was a horrible meal and I'm local...

“For a Weatherspoons, really quite good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

I'll be honest, I am not a fan of weatherspoons. In the town I live in and the surrounding towns, Weatherspoons are easily the nastiest, grubbiest pubs, and attract a fairly rough crowd. However, when I travel a bit further afield, I find that they are not all like this! The Powder Monkey is one such exception. It's large, bright and clean and has a mixed clientelle, with families, older people, groups and couples all to be seen rubbing along quite happily together. On the whole, I very resonable place for a drink and some cheap eats.
