Having this so close to home it's difficult not to keep giving it a try, but yesterday I had to walk out after standing at the bar for ten minutes after watching slow, arrogant bar staff once again. I'm sure I'll be in again but some attention really needs to be spent on improving the bar service.

I visited The Bull and Stirrup Bar and Restaurant today with My Mom on our visit to England. After having Fish and chips at another establishment the day previous we thought we'd pop in for some light lunch. And to our surprise they had daily specials on of FISH AND CHIPS at a price of £3.99 I was so shocked....

Stayed with my wife last night, greeted by Josh who was friendly welcoming and offered to show us to the room. Although above a pub there were 2 security doors before reaching the room so it felt safe. The room was clean and modern with bottled water tea and coffee. Ensuite was also modern. Next morning we had breakfast in...

I've visited a lot of the Weatherspoon chains over the country and this is one of the best, a lovely little beer garden out the back where we ate our meal. You know what you're getting here with the food, but the venue is nice and clean and has a nice bar area too.

Newly renovated by Wetherspoons for 2017. Lovely newly renovated and clean room, although very small but, that would be the only down side and considering how much we enjoyed it I feel mean saying it. The staff are outstanding, everyone was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

Apparently they have a policy where you can only get served at the bar if you're a reasonably attractive young woman. That's the only reason I can think of for standing around for 10 minutes trying to get the bartender's attention while he served people ahead of us, who'd been waiting less time. We walked out without ordering.
