Went in for curry and pint after a funeral. Food and drink were all promptly served. Vindaloo was a tad mild. I have had a hotter madras. But it was still good value for money

Very nice Wetherspoon's in centre of Wick, I would like to say the young lad on the bar was very friendly. We had a chicken sharer platter & haggis burger & chips which were all very nice

0des: I see that you are from Wick so why not just pop in and take a look. There is a menu on each table and no obligation to buy.
