Usual Weatherspoon experience i.e.. cheap beer and food. Always enjoy the ham and eggs with a pint costing only £1.99!!!! Good central meeting place for the start of a days special even i.e.. Rugby match , Speedway etc.

Wetherspoons bla bla, they are all the same. Mile long bar you cannot even get near on a busy Friday night. Okay, so I downloaded the app where you order drinks on your phone and they get delivered to your table - HOW AMAZING.. Drinks...More

The usual 'Spoons fayre. It is what it is, a large barn type venue that is long overdue a facelift. Still good value, but there are other pubs in town that are better value/quality for food

We used this place as a meet up to start my hen party. It was very busy and there weren’t many tables available. Tables that were available weren’t being cleared either so it was quite untidy. The service was average and the prices are cheap....More

We stumbled across the Henry Bessemer on a mission to find breakfast. As Wetherspoons seldom get it wrong, we entered, found our table, & perused the menu. Decisions made, I went along to the bar to order. I hadn't really noticed how busy the place...More

Have been in for drinks and food a few times, food usually good esp burgers, drink is well priced and staff pleasant. Majority of the chairs are now very stained and should be replaced asap, need more comfortable tub chairs.
