Cheap and cheerful. Not ever going to buy OJ here again. That said cooked food is good, service quick and company mixed.

A huge pub, lots of space, but terrible service and understaffed. A cheap pub as it's a JD Wetherspoon chain, so you know what to expect, but it felt dirty and cheap and the toilets stank. The service though was slow and many people deep...More
