This is a standard weatherspoons, with poor service the guy behind the bar was more interested in telling his friend about all of his conquests than serving. There were glasses on a few tables and it was not even that busy. There are nicer places you can go for just a couple of extra pence per drink

Dear Chris W I am sorry the service was not up to standard on your visit here. This is obviously not the experience we want our customers to have and I appreciate you taking the time to let us know about it. Please feel free to give us a call if you wish to discuss this further. Thank you, Becky More

I decided to try the new dessert as labelled on the menu. Chocolate cookie dough sandwich. It was just... More

Dear bakingboy Thank you for leaving your review as we really do appreciate all customer feedback. We do agree with you about the chairs and hopefully in the coming weeks you will see some improvement in that area. The layout of the pub is slightly trickier to change and we have tried to make it look interesting with artwork and... More

Great quality food at a reasonable price... well, the main course at least! Sadly the significant delay in serving our desserts coupled with the fact that when they did arrive the ice cream was liquid and not even cold somewhat let this surprisingly nice Wetherspoon pub down. In fairness, they did apologise sincerely, replace the Desserts (eventually!) and refund us... More

We popped in here on a Saturday late afternoon until early evening. The service at the bar was very good. A very friendly happy bar staff and it's good to be acknowledged by the staff now to let you know they are aware you are waiting. The food was excellent. Very hot and a nice size portion. The deserts were... More
