We come here on a regular basis. Best priced drinks around and the best selection. Love the gin club. Each type of gin with the appropriate garnish. The food is consistently good and excellent value for money.

Never asked how the meal or desert was! The meal was not up to standard as with other Wetherspoons! Lamb Shank usually falls off the bone but not today. Dinner plates on the table no room for desert plates this is not acceptable to me!...More
