The new self service hot drinks added 15 minutes to getting a drink at breakfast. There’s only one machine that does all the drinks so you have to join an orderly queue. The food arrived at the table 5 minutes before we returned with the...More

Hi Thank you for your feedback, the new machine is something we have introduced to help improve our bar service speed and efficiency, I assure you it has not been introduced as a cost saving measure. The machine dispenses perfect coffee in just over 20...More

Morbid and uninspiring - tired decor and fittings. The contactless pay machines on the bar are filthy, I pointed this out to one of the staff. She looked at me, smiled and assured me that the machines "were cleaned once a week". Sooooo that's all...More

Typical underlit, dark and gloomy Wetherspoons pub, but the lack of light here can't disguise just how tired and dirty this pub has become, with greasy tables, a carpet like a diseased lung and scruffy, dishevelled and untidy looking staff. Even arriving before 12:00 hrs...More
