For a chain, they do their brand very well and the food was very good - hot and tasty, no-one was disappointed.

Service - whilst it was not the best, it was still good enough to meet an average standard. They were under-staffed and therefore the table we sat at was not cleared before we ate. However, the members of staff that were present were extremely polite...More

In Bournemouth to follow our football team, we stopped for a couple of drinks before the match. The place was buzzing and the bar staff were great, very efficient and friendly. There is a very small yard at the back which was a welcome addition...More

After researching a few places to eat we were passing Wetherspoons and read the menu, went in, had prompt service for two hearty meals with bargain Strongbow and Guinness pints as part of the price. Good to see locals just having a drink.

Popped in for a quick bite to eat. From ordering to food on table was less than 20 minutes! Andrew our waiter was really funny and when I pointed out a small problem with my meal he apologised and offered us a free drink!

I have friends who like this pub so I've been there several times this year. The food is OK but I must say it's boring - basically fried, curried or steaks and chicken. I think most of it comes in ready to be reheated except...More

The exterior is quite smart. Inside is dark, dirty and dingy. The place is seriously understaffed, although they were trying very hard they just couldn't cope. Overheard from behind the bar "the kitchen is in chaos" We ordered Steak and Kidney pudding . It should...More
