Title says it all. Fine selection of beer and the usual wetherspoon food selection. Good clean pub. Can get busy, would be nice in the summer as there is plenty of outdoor seating. If you are staying in the travelodge next door it is very convenient and worth a visit for breakfast or a lunchtime drink.

Pretty much as you would expect from a Wetherspoons, but the seating area is a good size (still possible to find one or two small tables free on a Saturday evening in the run-u to Christmas). Staff were friendly and food delivery was fast both times we ate there. They also seemed pretty tolerant of e.g. other people buying drinks... More

It was Fish Friday and every table has a flyer advertising the fish & chip deal but when we went to order at 5pm, after queuing for 15 minutes I was told they had run out of fish. Common sense would tell you to take the flyers off of the tables! Having chosen something different and queued for another 15... More

Hi, Firstly I would like to apologise for the poor visit you had here. I would be interested to know what date it was that you visited. I, as long with the other managers, pride ourselves on our front of house standards. There's always at least two people dedicated to floor/waiter work. I worked the most recent Thursday, the 29/12/16... More

A seemingly typical Wetherspoons, but also typical of the declining food standard (from a low benchmark) of the pub chain. Typical Wetherspoons décor, comfortable, cheap but poor beer, terrible food.

Hi, Firstly, I would like to apologise for the poor experience you had with us. As you can see by our page, the general theme behind our responses offer positive feedback. I am sorry that the beer, on this occasion, was below standard. I myself have attended a cellar training course and I can assure you that all of the... More
