Poor Food (The burger sauce was not spread evenly on the bun of the "Ultimate Burger") and Poor Service (I had to wait quite a while for a straw for my soft drink).

Called in here as part of our Saturday night pub crawl. Around 9:30pm it was really packed and busy, took ages to get served and no chance of getting a seat. We only stayed for the one drink.

Can't go wrong with a Wetherspoons breakfast! Great value for money! Good quality filter coffee with free refills.
