This used to be a fun pub with pool tables and live music. Now it is corporate trash. We go here but only to see people or meet people. Never to go out of our way. I used to walk 1 mile door to for to pop in for a pint and read the newspaper when it was the stepping... More

Better than the Weatherspoons in our neck of the woods (West Yorkshire) food was average but sufficed for midday lunch.

Ordered breakfast, 2 adults 1 child. Absolutely terrible. Not cooked properly, either overcooked or undercooked, sent back several times & just came out worse. 'Chefs' don't give a monkeys and clearly don't temperature check the food. Staff unable to handle complaints. Have had plenty of Spoons breakfasts in the past, but this was by far the worst.

No Xmas menu other than Turkey Pie. Very sparse with the decorations and staff don't seem to be in the best of spirits. Nowhere near the heights of the last couple of years. Such a shame as a very popular place.
