Went in for one drink before going to a show in the Pavilion. The place was filthy and the tables were dirty and sticky. One chair at our table was visibly broken. I couldn’t get out of the place quick enough.

This place is ideal for simple, snack food. We had pizza, onion rings and nachos with two soft drinks for €23. Ideal. Very tasty and very quick. It's directly across from the Dart station. Family/wheelchair friendly.

They have very good deals which would appeal to many. However, I think they should stick to serving drinks only. Yes the food is cheap but the standard is not great.

There is a lot to commend when reviewing J.D. Wetherspoons @ The 40 Foot. The views from the first floor are second to none. The interiors are also pleasing. The food is extremely price-friendly - for example, €5.99 for a pizza. However, that adage about...More
