This is a very popular and busy Wetherspoons in Motherwell. On Saturday night it was heaving and very loud! No loud music, but lots of customers enjoying themselves. Ordered food and despite how busy it was it came really quickly and was hit. The Wetherspoons app didn't work and would not order food from our table!

It is what it is, a fairly typical "Spoons." It's hard to argue with the value for money you get here; no other boozer in the area can compete price wise. My gripe is with the availability of guest ales; "available soon" seems to be a permanent fixture on a lot of the taps. On frequent visits to another 'spoons... More

Cheap drink which is great. The food in this particular weatherspoons isn't really that good compared to other weatherspoons which i have been to, had a few meals here and everything is either under or overcooked, more so overcooked and very dry as in burgers etc. Bar service can be VERY slow at busy times, doesnt seem to be enough...

This is a typical wetherspoons. Cheap night for either food or drink. The food is of a relatively poor standard if im honest. The draught pints are excellent though. It is what it is!!!!!!!

Hi there, I am very sorry you felt the need to leave such a negative review. I realise you weren't familiar with JD Wetherspoon as you don't have them in USA, but as I explained the way we cook things is the same concept across our company. To clarify our rice is not packet and salsa is fresh, just not... More

This place was jumping when we called in but lots of staff behind the bar and we soon had a table cleared for our use. The standard Wotherspoons fare was available and I opted for the curry dish of the day. My chicken curry was served promptly with some nice fat chips and some nice rice as well, Pakora was... More
