Worst chips we have ever had in a Wetherspoons. They were dry and tasteless. Generally elsewhere we have found them crisp and flavoursome. Chicken strip goujons were hard and again lacking in flavour. Seats and tables were dirty. On the plus side service was good.

Nice spoons which serves all the standard Wetherspoon pub grub. Service is efficient and polite. The meal was served within ten minutes and was hot and tasty. The upstairs bar area was very quiet which was nice compared to the bustle on the ground floor.

Went there at Sunday lunchtime on the May bank holiday weekend - quite busy, but the food didn't take too long and was reasonable for the price. But the upstairs seemed a bit scruffy and not the sort of place where you would want to spend a lot of time.

Only went here for drinks, but it's a Wetherspoon's, so you know what you're getting. As is common in many towns, on our way here we passed many empty bars, but it was busy here - the low prices here being the obvious factor. Drank here twice during our 3 day stay in Ryde - the first time an inexperienced... More

Had the 14 oz angus we where Hungry. Such a shame they can't cook steak here. I would've given it back but we didn't have time to find someone to ask and then wait for new ones.

Dear David H, I'm ever so sorry to hear your visit to Fowlers wasn't a pleasurable one. We always strive for perfection and when we fail, we always rectify it. If you had asked one of my waiters/waitresses to take the Angus back and cook you a fresh one, we would have done that immediately. Sorry the time frame you... More

Visited with my other half. Everything was all good until we ordered drinks and food. The food took more that 1 hour and the drinks were served in dirty glasses. Would be my last visit.

Not sure what this building was originally used for but Wetherspoons have developed a comfortable pub in it. The usual menu was delivered quickly and efficiently. Thoroughly enjoyable visit.
