4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

As always with Wetherspoons, a varied choice of food at reasonable prices and service was so quick. Good selection of beers and after being ravenous, the quick service was much appreciated after a long day. Chicken and ribs combo nice but very filling!

I eat in here very often because it is good value and good food, however, I can't believe you would serve a steak with peas or a full breakfast on a cold plate. Surely a place that serves as many meals as wetherspoons should have a plate warmer.

Most wetherspoons restaurants are the same. A few weeks ago I ate at The Thomas Drummond in Fleetwood and the food was good and the staff were polite, and so I thought The Jolly Tars would be the same, perhaps slightly better if I was lucky. I have eaten here before but to be honest, everytime there has been something... More

They rarely if ever look to see who is next for serving, the team leaders appear to be worse than untitled bar staff. If they know your face you are ok,... More

We visited this Wetherspoons pub after shopping in Cleveleys. We were a family of six. We sat in front of the log fire, which after a chilly walk around the town was most welcoming! We ordered our drinks and food at the bar and no sooner had we sat down and the meals were being served. No scrimping on quality... More

We go there regularly, typical wetherspoons cheap and cheerful food, good service, nice decor, and especially good for breakfast. The eggs benedict and unlimited coffee is always a winner.
