Ordered food here. My partner ordered jacket potato with chile con carne filling. When this arrived it was found to be stone cold. The waitress took this away. When the food was returned it was obvious that the potato had been put back into the microwave and the skin was baked hard. By this time I had almost finished my... More

We found this Wetherspoons by accident but quickly decided to pop in for breakfast. Quite surprising to see the bar busy with so many people at 10.30 in the morning, but most were eating breakfast. A warm pub so we found a table at the rear where it was cooler and I ordered breakfast from the bar. £4.40 each for... More

As the hotel my mam and me were staying at didn't cater for breakfast we decided on popping into Whetherspoons. We got there about 11ish and it seems a popular place as it was pretty busy. We managed to find a table and decided to order the smaller cooked breakfast as we saw people eating the large breakfast which was... More

we called in for a breakfast before our walk around the city wall. The place was clean,tidy and well laid out. The food was nice and the waiter even changed the style of eggs on offer to poached instead of scrambled for the wife. This place was always busy when ever we went past so it must be OK most...

The ale selection here has really come on over the last year. Great choice and a lot more knowledge from the people on the bar, which made my selection a lot easier. Food was quick, hot and what you'd expect for the price. Good deals on fish and chips the Friday we went, which is what I went for, and... More

I went to this pub because I knew it belongs to the Wetherspoon chain, so I wanted to try the Chester's branch. I like the Wetherspoon pubs because they offer good meal deals and good quality food. Normally they serve the food relatively fast, considering the amount of people that they normally have. In my case, they took very long... More

Hi, thanks for the feedback, and again sorry for the delay. We did have a slight issue with our table numbering this day and are thankful for the patience you showed whilst we dealt with this issue. Hopefully we will be one of the wetherspoon pubs you revisit in the future and we look forward to seeing you again More
