Visited a couple of times over Easter holiday and while being very busy found getting served no problem, staff were all good "proper" bar staff and knew how to run a bar. No silly queues like in some spoons. Bouncers on the Saturday night were very polite and friendly- I had my bag searched but this was done without any... More

This pub is light and airy which is unusual for a J. D. Witherspoon they are usually quite dark but we sat by the window and it was lovely. Only spoilt by some bad language from some customers.

Popped in to the pub on my way home this afty ( Wednesday) and was amazed to see one bloke (tattooed and bald) running around like a headless chicken while other guys were standing behind the bar - probably manicuring their nails. I've been here several times and am amazed that some members of staff can get away with doing... More

The great thing about Weatherspoon's is that you pretty much get waht you expect every time, wherever you are. A couple of colleagues and I were staying in Hartlepool and ate here. Good beer, adequate food, consistent service and great value. I guess the only downside with this particular pub could be that the toilets are up a couple of... More

A nice pub in good location, close to town centre. Great service and excellent value coffees, must be cheapest Spoons in UK. Modern decor and seating, although the booths for 2 people are small and would be better for children. Toilets very modern and clean. Nice atmosphere. Would recommend.
