Good real ale pub with friendly staff and prompt service. Food order taken quickly and served with no delay. No complaints, and would recommend this pub to others.

The Auctioneer is an old Wetherspoons pub, now owned by a different company. It has a great selection of drinks on offer, the staff were very friendly and... More

Stopped by for beers. The range of beer was extensive, unusual and well conditioned. The CAMRA member discount added to my enjoyment.

We have popped in the Auctioneer many times, but it is now time to review it. Yesterday we called in for breakfast, the food was hot and very tasty, served on a hot plate. The pub was full of people enjoying themselves. A relaxed atmosphere. The staff are polite and friendly, the place is clean and well presented.

We all had different meals. Everyone thought they were fine, not exceptional but decent enough. I would say somewhere between an average and a very good.
