the Silk Mercer is a Wetherspoon pub and is exactly the same as it has been the last few times I've been in. The floors (carpets) are absolutely filthy. The tables are sticky on top and underneath. There are empty glasses all over the place...More

Another Wetherspoons and another great experience. Rapid and friendly service in an old building that is full of character. The Thursday curry was spot on as usual. The chain never fails to deliver when I visit. Well done everyone!!
