Ordered egg royale eggs were hard waiter took them back and replaced them it was then ok. Funny thing one of my party had a single uncooked frozen chip in her meal of fish and chips. Besides that everything was good and the price was competitive.

Went with my family for tea during the school holidays, and it was chicken night! Amazing. The food was good, quick service and we used the wetherspoons app so it was quick and easy to pay! The food was lovely and cooked perfect and we even got dessert, 2 for £5 which were lovely and a bargain! I would go... More

We had a lovely meal and drinks served by a pleasant barmaid and the waitress who served our meal was pleasant enough but forgot my salad (remedied quickly once I asked her for it) Only minus point, our table was dirty and sticky which is most unusual in our experience of weatherspoons, especially as this place only had about 10%...

We visited the miles thompson today (19th April) and ordered two children's meals, one jacket potato and one burger. The food came and they had brought the incorrect children's food, we asked for this to be changed but was initially told that's what I'd ordered. We insisted this was wrong and asked for one of the meals to be changed,... More

I visited the miles Thompson last week and ordered the chicken wrap with side salad and a pint of refreshing lager and lime. The chicken was tasty and came with three dips and I didn't have to wait long for my order. It was served to me by a very tall efficient waiter. Talk about service with a smile. I... More

But it didn,t detract from the taste so don,t... More

I'm a great fan of Wetherspoon pubs for quality and value. Therefore when staying in the Lake District with my family we took advantage of the local one and had yet another great value meal.

Looking to grab a quick dinner before we went to the football. The restaurant was busy but we managed to get a seat. We ordered from the extensive menu, the food arrived in a timely fashion. Both meals were nicely presented and good to eat, there was absolutely nothing you could fault. Well done.
