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 for the fried meals. I would never choose to eat here but the food is... 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 have come with a pneumatic drill, overcooked to be almost inedible. We didn't have the...

My pint of abbot ale didn't taste or smell quite right to me and the manager changed it for me without a problem. She was really pleasant too. I had sirloin steak with pepper sauce and it was cooked to medium rare perfectly. My husband had mixed grill and we enjoyed our meals. If we are ever in the area... More

I went here on a Saturday with my boyfriend because we haven't been for a while due to work and college. Usually we are treated very nice and we really enjoy coming here, however, that day it wasn't the case. I ordered food as usual and everything was fine until I needed to change a part of my order, I... More

Went to Wetherspoons for food a couple of times whilst on holidays here. Well worth a visit for the beer and food. Clean Pub and the food is very reasonable with specials on the weekdays. Service was good with polite staff.

If you like Weatherspoons then this will be just another one for your collection. The bar staff were friendly, the beer was 'okay' along with the food. Decor typically tired and in need of a refresh. Door staff were.a bit unnecessarily over zealous during my visit.

Fast service, good food (in context), very worn out venue, and the locals are the usual dsa, jobseekers brigade most people general avoid. Would not recommend you take you kids here.
