Great value as always at Witherspoon . Food piping hot and delivered to table very quick. All staff were polite and helpful. Very convenient for the Travel lodge next door. Very busy pub, but managed to find a table.

We visited this on Good Friday afternoon of the Easter weekend. It was busy as to be expected at this time of year but there were tables available. Unfortunately they were all dirty or sticky with leftover food on the tables and/or empty glasses. None appeared to have plates on them, surprised the food leftovers weren't taken away with the...

We went here mid afternoon on Easter Saturday, a day that everyone knows will be busy in pubs/restaurants especially Wetherspoons pubs.

Stopped off on way to our holiday accommodation. Friendly staff and nice pub in a good location overlooking the river. Plenty of parking around. Food and service is what you would expect from weatherspoons ( good price for decent food).

Was there yesterday and used the awesome weatherspoons app to order food & drinks. The drinks arrived within 1 minute! Which is extremely fast and impressive! Food shortly after! I believe the app is a great move and the service gone one level up! Totally satisfied! Will return soon!

Food and drinks are very reasonable, the food quality is good. A little off the beaten track, the pub large and bright but lacks a little atmosphere
