Called in for a drink while in town. Two pubs across from here have recently been refurbished,and this pub is now starting to show signs of wear and tear. Still good value drinks, but other local bars are now competing on food prices. The whole place is in need of a refurb and some t.l.c. People have many bars to... More

Arrived early so the place was still pretty empty. Was served fast at the bar, there was more staff than usual and you could tell, it was a lot better. Food good, plates hot for a change. Just feel the place needs a good clean and decorating.

We also spend a great deal of money and time touching up the pub to make it look welcoming. If you could email the pub... More

New menu has been introduced. Very busy bar on a Saturday afternoon, and much better when management and staff are attentive and good at what they do. Good choice of ales and ciders - Real Ale festival due to take place 22/3 to 2/4 ; one to watch out for.

We visited this Wetherspoons on Friday 10th February 2017 mid morning for a breakfast which we usually do when in the area.
