I always eat here if possible on a Thursday because of the curry. It always find a place to sit because it is very roomy. The pub is nicely in the centre of town close to my hotel. So that is nice too.

We regularly eat at Wetherspoon pubs when we are travelling. The food is always to an acceptable level and the prices are extremely reasonable. Service was friendly and quick. Ideal for when you just want to have eat and drink without spending a fortune.
