Very busy big pub. Beer was good and well kept.

Great hubbub with numerous screens blaring World Cup games with a loud enthusiastic audience of drinkers spectating! - so not a typical time to visit!

The beer garden was a good size and you might get a bit of relative tranquility in the corner if that's what you prefer.

Have loads of seating. There is also a sizeable beer garden at the rear. Food was served quickly and was lovely. It was really busy and the bar staff were run off their feet. Getting served at the bar was a bit of a down side. Also food was served to our table for another table the waiting staff were confused over where tables were and the table numbers.

Usual good standard of ales. However I have frequented many Weatherspoons all over the UK and without question the bar staff are the least aware/attentive I have ever seen. Pay absolutely zero attention to who is next to be served simply serving whoever is nearest. Really very bad.

Good Wetherspoons on Broad Street. Ate here on a Friday afternoon. Plenty of seating and a small beer garden which was a sun trap. We like it here because there is no music playing but as we were about to eat the sound on the televisions were turned up because of the football. Not everyone one enjoys football and we wanted to enjoy conversation with our friends but it was very noisy. Meals were good.

Good breakfast, well priced and good service. Just what we needed after any early start. The service was great and we were served quickly. Good for the kids
