Just had a beautiful buttermilk chicken burger with salad and chips, now waiting for my desert. This is the closest to our home Wetherspoons and we always have a great meal here, the staff are very helpful and the prices are the best in town.

4 of us went here early, 6.30 on Saturday. 3 starters and 4 mains with drinks for £52.00 is not bad in my book. A few hiccups with the order but nothing a bit more trading won't sort out.

You need to go past the Aquatec swimming baths, straight through the roundabout and take the first right. This will bring you to the back of Wetherspoons. You go through a tunnel/walkway and turn to your right.
