Fairly poor, my burger tasted like something I could have bought from McDonald's. The children's mash for disgusting, never had bad mash until now, not sure how you can mess up mash. However the staff were lovely and the drinks we had were nice.

The menu at this chain always offer good 'ordinary' pub grub and there is nothing wrong in that. This particular one lacks any atmosphere but is probably well placed for a meal if using the cinema close by. I had the gammon steak and it...More

Clean and tidy, family friendly, clean toilets and friendly efficient staff. However, seemed expensive for an upmarket Wetherspoons. This place is ok but I would not return or recommend.
