My son and called in here on Saturday last and enjoyed a good pint and some pub grub. The layout of the place is very good and the staff were very friendly. We would be happy to go again.

We often visit our weatherspoons to meet family for breakfast. Such good value for money, nice hot food, refillable coffee until midday and Friendly service particularly from a lovely young waitress called Hannah. Overall good value for money.
