Stopped here on my way to our hotel from Manchester, extremely hungry but wouldn't let us into the restaurant, as I look too young, this was at 7pm and I had ID and didn't want to have alcohol only food. Such rude door staff, went to the harvester down the road.

Thank you for your review. We operate challenge 25 scheme. Its a scheme that encourages anyone who is over 18 but looks under 25 to carry acceptable ID when they want to buy alcohol. The only reason they would have refused your ID is if it was not a valid ID. More

I lived in Staines for about 2 years and I'm about to move, and this place is probably one of the things I'll miss most about Staines. I know there's about a million Wetherspoons around the country, but this one felt very familiar and somehow "better". If you want a cheap but still very good meal, maybe with a nice... More

Ordered gammon which came with two eggs which looked Iike they were made of rubber. See pic. The meals were only lukewarm, the butter didn't melt on the jacket potatoes. And every time young people came upstairs, the woman behind the bar shouted over to them asking for ID. Couldn't understand why she didn't go over to them instead of... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear your food was not up to our usual standards. The lady behind the bar was checking young people ID's as we have to check the age of anyone buying restricted products who they believe to be under 25. More

The food is reasonably priced, and a fair selection, we didn't wait long to get served. It's very much a case of you get what you pay for and at under £6 for lunch and a drink it's good value.

Weekday evening meal with the girlfriend and her 2 kids aged 11 and 8. Turned away because they don't serve children after 7pm. Looked at the menu and on website and can't find this published anywhere.
