It's quite big, but has small booths at the side (some of them with books!) for a bit of privacy. A large lion statue dominates the entry. There are three banks of handpumps on the bar, each with five or six pumps.
Only been here once, on a Friday afternoon. The usual Wetherspoons daytime drinkers were in evidence, but the atmosphere wasn't unpleasant. Barstaff were very friendly. There are some pubs where I wouldn't feel comfortable going for a drink on my own, but this isn't one of them. --[[Kake]]

[[Kake]] and friends first visited on a Friday afternoon during the Spring 2007 Wetherspoons beer festival. All the ales we wanted to try were on (although when one ran out they didn't turn the label on the pump round, which was a little confusing), and the barstaff were very patient when asked to pour nine 1/3-pints per round. Service was very friendly. The usual Wetherspoons daytime drinkers were in evidence, but the atmosphere wasn't unpleasant. Two of us went for the "two main meals for £6" offer, both choosing lasagne, which was excellent for the price.)

[[Kake]] visited again on a Tuesday lunchtime in August 2013. There were plenty of interesting real ales available, as well as interesting real ciders. A pint of lime and soda was a pleasingly cheap 65p. Five bean chilli (&pound;4.79) <small>[http://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/9529686478/ photo]</small> was OK, though the flavour was more acidically tomatoey than versions I've had in other Wetherspoons, and not in a good way.
Food is the standard Wetherspoons menu, competently prepared. And how can you go wrong with two main meals for six quid? (We both had lasagne, which was excellent for the price.)

Accessibility: No steps to get in. Stepfree to the bar, some of the seating, and the toilets, including an accessible one. However, much of the seating (including all of the area where children are permitted) is on a dais, up three steps with a handrail.
The BITE comments linked below suggest that it can get crowded.
