What an unfortunate dining experience! We arrived as a family of 8 and quickly told there was room for us upstairs. Most of our party had to go back downstairs to order because the beer choices upstairs were so poor. Things didn’t get any better as 4 of us waited for our food for nearly an hour and it arrived only after chasing it up and after the rest of our party had finished their meals. My husband had to go through 4 different menu choices as everything was sold out, no mixed grills, no cod & chips, no ploughman’s and eventually settled on a chicken & avocado salad. My burger arrived cold, crispy and tasteless (it was obvious it had been sitting under a heat lamp for ages) and my husbands salad was pathetic. Watery, tasteless avocado and some wilted lettuce leaves. The children’s pizzas were cold, but they were so hungry, they ate them! To top off a terrible experience, a visit to the loos found them in an unhygienic state, evidenced by the toilet cleaning roster which confirmed they had not been checked since 3pm! It was nearly 9pm by the time we used them. This restaurant may appeal to your pocketbook, but certainly not your tastebuds or customer satisfaction.

Although it's our local Wetherspoons we think it is one of the best. The building has very tastefully converted from a chapel making very pleasant surroundings. Staff are very friendly and food usual good value for money.

Hi

Thank you for the positive feedback. We aim to please and it's always lovely to hear when we manage to do just that

I'll pass on your comments to the team who I know will appreciate it, as for the soya milk I'm sure it won't be long before we all have it :)

Kind regards
Bobby
