The service was not good and the food was just ok. It's a cheap place and I get why people go there but the food was like it was microwaved. The lasagne was good but the chicken was terrible. All the tables were dirty and I had to ask them twice to come and clean ours. Will not go there... More

We were staying at the nearby Radisson Blu and fancied grabbing something to eat and watching Champions League Football so we wandered down to The Crystal Palace as we knew they had BT Sport. What can I say except it does exactly what it says on the tin, friendly staff, great beer and selection of real ales at great prices.... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. They had a special for lunch that included a discounted beer, who could say no. Being from the US, It seems odd of having to go up to the bar to order drinks and food, the hardest part was trying to remember what my wife wanted to order LOL. It was nice... More

Had breakfast here this morning and we were very disappointed. We had eaten here around a year ago and been very impressed with the breakfast but today it did not live up to the previous experience. Everything was over cooked but the breakfasts were all cold. My son was the only one who had no complaints with his pancakes and... More

Attended a small function here and met with the inevitable constant q to get drinks that seem to plague this pub chain. Bar staff were pleasant but far to often one was left on their own and others ignored the customers. At the end of the evening we were served a round of drinks and within 10 minutes our drinks...

Went here for a meal and a few drinks. I had a steak which was cooked perfect for me and my partner a mixed grill, both healthy portions. We both had a drink and the bill came to around £25.00. Pleasant atmosphere and would recommend the service was fast and the staff were pleasant. I would return here if we... More

Not good at all service was perfect but being a manager in an establishment the way staff are treated is so unfair

After a long day shopping, the Chrystal Palace was just ideal for a nice meal and nice glass of chilled pinot, I couldn't believe how cheap it was and the choice too,. Its ideal if you have special dietry needs as it caters for most and also gives a calorie count for every meal. We both had skinny chicken burgers... More

I'm giving it a 5 purely because of the service and basically I got what I was expecting with my meal. No frills. First time I've had a check back on my food in a weatherspoons!! That in itself was worth a 5, I was quite surprised. I would say it's hard to find the condiments, hidden well out of... More
