|Lots of previous reviews resonate with me regarding ABYSMAL level of service. I abandoned this place in 2005, having gave its management the benefit of my '3 strikes and your out' policy regarding pub service. Obviously the SAME issues exist now as did back then, ignorant staff, stupid managers, oppressive doormen, all of which result in ABYSMAL SERVICE! I, foolishly may I say, once stood for over 20 minutes for a drink as I was ignored and 'passed over in favour of bar staff's friends and family, when I complained I was ignored. This continued to be the presentation whenever I went in the pub. On more than one occasion we were told to ' do our talking as I was walking' by the doormen 20 minutes BEFORE last orders on a quiet evening during the week, our assumption was they had other places to be, eg working at a nightclub, and were keen to get rid of us to facilitate same! This happened on two occasions and there were no other reason why they would want us out, as we were NOT drunk, quarrelsome or disorderly! The straw that broke the proverbial was when one evening during the week I went in and approached the bar, two barstaff were standing unoccupied, there was only one other person at the bar, so quiet was it. I was asked by one of the barstaff for my order and pint of Stela was my reply. The barman said 'no bother' and appeared to search for a glass, he then disappeared into the back of the bar service area. Approximately 4 minutes elapsed during which time I assumed he had went to change the barrel or something, where upon my supposed 'servee' emerged from the back room with a clot and a container of surface cleaner and proceeded to start cleaning the tops of dirty tables. I approached the same 'servee' and asked him where my pint of Stella was, to which he replied 'sorry mate, I forgot'...I truly wish this was fiction, but alas not! I have numerous other examples of 'fun' experienced in that place, too many to go into here...BEWARE of that place, by ALL accounts it hasn't changed, I am just pleased I elected not to wear the Whetherspoon's Victim Bandana at an early stage!|

|I have frequented Wetherspoons many times over the last few years and find it to be a family friendly place to have a meal. |
Staff are friendly and polite,the food is good and the beer is reasonably priced. Always a nice atmosphere and welcoming.

|I would advise people not to listen to a review obviously posted by somebody with a vendetta. Perhaps "eyes" you should invest in a dictionary and spend your time reading it rather than verbally attacking people online, as your spelling is somewhat atrocious. |

|This used to be a good real ale pub, but has been let down by the poor selection over the last 18 months. Very few local micro's are featured in lieu of Greene King regulars. You often find that over a weekend beers are not changed very quickly and you find most beers are off!. For some reason with this weatherspoons they don't/refuse to stock the bottled ciders that they advertise? Magners being the only cider stocked - no Bulmers or Westons?|
It a shame but this pub is well below the Weatherspoon standards

|I am a local resident of consett who frequently visits company row for meals with my young family, the staff are helpful and geniune they also monitor alcohol intake of parents whilst in care of children. Only good for the community.|
