Sunday night in Wick, not the best place to find fine dinning and a bit of a time warp of 40 years ago. The Alexander Bain was the only place in town which had any life and had any modern investment. In fact it was full. The only other choice was the Italian next door. Sat in the main bar on the tall tables with plenty of atmosphere. Standard Weatherspoons fare, but nothing wrong with it at the price. Service was excellent and friendly. Had the burger doubled up for £1, with a pint of larger, still only just over £7. My wife had the veggie curry option. Nothing wrong with that either.

The food and beer was considered quite cheap in this beautiful restaurant bar!
We just dropped by the city and enjoyed it.
It was clean as well. Attendants were helpful and polite.
The food was acceptable, nothing to surprise us but considering the restaurants ambience, price, beer and service, I will recommend

Not the most glamorous of places and to be honest I dont know why I even went. Better places to eat and cheaper.

This is a typical Wetherspoons establishment, cheap drink and cheap food with friendly staff. Exactly what you’d expect from a Wetherspoons, no more no less.

Very poor service tonight. Food came to table, lady never asked who was having what. Set it down on table and continued to talk to boys at table next to us about being so drunk the night before. The lady made no conversation with us and just dumped out food for us to sort out ourselves. Once we started eating our food it was awful. Mash was cold, gravy clumpy, burger tasted funny and chips were cold. Not a pleasant experience and had to take kids to chip shop on way home
