Popped into Wetherspoons Aberystwyth for a Pint of Guinness today, a young lady served me and to my astonishment I watched her swirling the glass around like a spin dryer while it slowly poured in!! Good grief, the most cherished of all Pint drinks, my...More

Took the family in for a lunchtime meal. The place was full of students and single old men hogging tables with one cup of coffee for what felt like ages! We decided to stay and order via the app. Not working. Went to the bar....More

We called in for the steak deal and as usual the steak was well presented and tasteful. We have never been disappointed with the steak deal at Wetherspoons.

A great shame that Wetherspoons is no longer opening at 7am which means that you can no longer take a hot drink onto the 7.30am train. Also Yr Hen Orsaf has only gained 3 out of 5 with regard to the kitchen hygiene.

Hello Ivan, Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. The EHO ratings you see on the front door represent the business as a whole, not just the kitchen hygiene, and I can assure our kitchen standards are excellent. Kind regards, Nick

Can I first say that I have had several good experiences in Wetherspoons pub/restaurants - including Yr Hen Orsaf. Unfortunately, last Wednesday evening (Jan 2nd) was appalling. It was due to a combination of a new poorly trained member of staff whose knowledge of the...More

Used the new ordering online app. Didn't work. Took nearly £30 from my account. 5-7 working days to refund it. Spoke to the manager who was worse than useless. Family now hungry. Thanks Wetherspoon and your staff for ruining a family day out.More

Needs to review their menu - and it's looking a bit tired in the seating area. The choices are not expensive, but they always seem to have run out of whatever I chose. Otherwise, a fast delivery, but not many frills with the food>
