We dined here on a Sunday evening and they were out of many things (no sausage, no fish n' chips, etc.). In fairness to the restaurant they are beginning a renovation soon so stockades were low. On the upside, the waitresses were amazing and service...More

I loved the food, the prices are decent, I also liked the way this place looks inside (very cosy). The staff was nice but sometimes it was difficult to find someone to take an order when the place was crowded.More

These people can't take a simple order. They obviously set a low standard and fail to achieve it. Not the first time so I should have known better. I do not recommend this establishment at all.More

Wherever we go we always seek out a Wetherspoons for breakfast or lunch. You know you get served quick, the food is great value and there is something for vegetarians. This pub is off the pedestrianised high street. Parking was a few hundred metres away....More

This is a run of the mill public house on Andover High Street. Very cheap food but very predictable-mostly with chips! Curry night Thursday good value for money. Child friendly but used by all ages. Tables outside.

Never disappointed when I go to a Wetherspoons, I love the BBQ chicken panini! Didn't want to spend a fortune and didn't want a huge meal. Lots of tables, and quick service.

Response from Corey T | Property representative |
Hi Julie, sorry for the late reply. The pub is situated at the bottom of the high street, probably about 5-10 minute walk so I would suggest booking a taxi if you are planning on coming in for a meal.
