I first went to this place with my flatmates. We were seven and luckily we have been able to find a table in 5 minutes, which is not easy since the place is often very busy. Our food arrived no more than 15 minutes after...More

Went if for dinner with 15 friends. Obviously this is a Wetherspoons so staff don't move to help. We found some space and brought in extra tables from another room with the help of a server. Having set up a supervisor turned up to lecture...More
