Lovely meal here before a concert at the nearby Metro arena. Good range of food and drink, very reasonably priced, with lively staff. You know what you're getting and what's wrong with that?

A standard Wetherspoons with good food, well priced, and good service. It was very busy when we visited so downloaded the food ordering app and it was brilliant. No queueing, and food and drink served within ten minutes. Definitely the way to go.

Now I've been visiting this place for years - with the family, as a couple and periodically, on my own and will probably continue to do so, so long as the language police step in. The Quayside Bar is a favourite for many where food,...More
