I went with friends for lunch-time meal at The Blackwater Stream in Broadstone. It was fairly busy but was easy to find a table. Two of us just chose from the Small Plates menu and the other two chose from the Chicken and Ribs menu. Service was very good and quick. Good value with the bonus of a lovely chat.... More

Run by jumped up kids full of their own self importance. Pay a few quid more and go somewhere else! Food cold. Asked if it could be hot and told we were liars as the food is probed before it goes out. Asked if they would probe the food for us to see and we were dismissed and told to... More

Some people say that you should not expect too much from a Weatherspoons, but if my experience a couple of days ago is anything to go by, then you can expect a good experience. We had drinks and a meal on a fairly busy Saturday evening and have only compliments to make. The beer was great, the food was fine... More

Went for evening meal. Pub was crowded but no problem being seated and service was quick. Lovely food I just had a starter and my husband had the classic dog which came with a free drink. Cheap food.

The breakfast here was so good we visited a few times during our holiday in Poole. The standard of the food, the efficiency of the staff and great customer service was the usual trademark of what we have come to expect from wetherspoons. And it was so busy from the locals and tradesmen and yet still served quickly and lovely... More

Dropped in here for a drink before a meal with a couple of friends. Typical Weatherspoons (not a bad thing!) and pretty large - although very busy on this Friday evening. A good range of ales.
