So the last 2 meals I have ordered here were actually edible which surprises me due to the recent track record. Countless times I have had to send my food back - usually because it's burnt, raw, cold, looks like an utter mess or countless other reasons, but the last 2 occasions have actually been ok. Whoever is working in... More

Well this place is a disgrace to the wetherspoon chain. The toilets whilst normally not bad have been either recently gutted and there was no loo roll for visiting customers. When asked downstairs they said we simply haven't got any! Can you believe it? Downstairs the place was filthy and smacked of "we simply can't be bothered" empty glasses everywhere,... More

TBH it is probably what you expect for the prices. Had fish and chips with a pint for 8 quid. Now that has got to be almost unbeatable. The downside is the quality. Sorry it's a mediocre score but despite the price it just wasn't great.

You know what you're going to get here. Food is exactly the same as every other Wetherspoons. Cheap prices attract those who want to drink on the cheap all day and become a loud annoyance to other visitors and it's for this reason I don't visit any more. Ok for a meal during the day and on a weekend evening... More

The establishment is a nice place with good atmosphere. Plenty of space inside and out on nice days. Staff were pleasant , only criticism is not enough staff so the wait was a bit longer then expected to be served. Food was good with quality, amount and value. Good place to have a meeting as there are plenty of tucked... More

Had a really nice lunch with some friends at the Standing Order. Been there to drink quite a few times before but it's the first time I've eaten there. The menu has the amount of calories listed for each product which helps you make choices if necessary. All of us ordered separately but our food all came out together and... More

I had a meal at The Standing Order yesterday which was both very poor and disappointing. I am not one to usually complain, however, today's meal was an exception. Firstly, the bar member failed to mention that there was a lack of ingredients in the kitchen today, and if informed, we would have ordered an alternative to avoid disappointment. Secondly,... More

When we visit the Old Town, Stevenage we always have a drink or two in the Standing Order, it is a really pleasant place to enjoy a drink, sociable, friendly and has a very relaxed feel about it.

Was in a few times over the course of 5 days. You get what it says on the tin. Typical Wetherspoon's. Found the food to be ok and as you'd expect the drink is reasonably priced which I suppose is the reason it was always busy! No real issues.

We were looking for an evening meal as our hotel had let us down. This pub offered a good choice of menu and the prices were fair. The food was served in good time and there was plenty of it. Service was good, staff very friendly. Would recommend to anyone in the Stevenage area .
