Popped in yesterday lunch(Sunday) to meet a few friends who live in the area, not that busy. I have used a lot of Wetherspoons pubs all around the country due to work. This is honestly the worst I have been in for service, all staff should be trained properly instead of thrown in at the deep end. 4/10

I have never been so relieved to set foot inside a Wetherspoons, after my visit to O'Neill's next door. OK, so this is an older Spoons, a bit bland and sporting a bit of a canteen style layout at the back of the pub, but there were different areas towards the front to break up the space. Just looking a bit run down - dirty stained seating and varnish wearing off the tables. All part of the character though right?

Anyway, on to the beer - 5 pumps at the bar of which 1 was off. An interesting selection on this bank and I went for a pint of Midnight Express by Salopian at £2.35 for the pint. Bargain - and a much needed decent refreshing pint after my visit next door. Strangely after paying with a £5 note I received £2.35 in change, so I think the person serving got a bit confused. Not worth arguing about though especially once you have left the bar area. The Midnight Express was a dark ale and very tasty.

There was a second bank of 5 pumps which I didn't inspect fully but seemed to have the usual Wetherspoons offerings of Ruddles and so on, plus a couple of "coming soon" ales.

Busy but no problem getting a seat. Plenty of interesting looking characters around.

If I am up that way I would probably go again, purely for the decent selection of ale on offer.

Seems fairly civilised on a Thursday evening, good service, reasonable beer at competitive prices.

It served a purpose last night as we needed something to eat quickly. Service was quick and efficient. Conwy Welsh Pride, Old Speckled Hen, Bishops Finger and Lymestone's Stone the Crows were available and, at just over £11 for 2 meals and 2 drinks, we could not go wrong.
