Dropped in here for a drink before a meal with a couple of friends. Typical Weatherspoons (not a bad thing!) and pretty large - although very busy on this Friday evening. A good range of ales.

Better than the Weatherspoons in our neck of the woods (West Yorkshire) food was average but sufficed for midday lunch.

Ordered breakfast, 2 adults 1 child. Absolutely terrible. Not cooked properly, either overcooked or undercooked, sent back several times & just came out worse. 'Chefs' don't give a monkeys and clearly don't temperature check the food. Staff unable to handle complaints. Have had plenty of Spoons breakfasts in the past, but this was by far the worst.
