Cheshire news Cheshire's best and worst Wetherspoons, according to TripAdvisor PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Not all Wetherspoons are created equal
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Wetherspoons, love them or loathe them, are a mainstay of our high streets in Cheshire and around the UK. As we move to the next stage of lockdown easing on May 17 when all pubs and restaurants are allowed to serve customers indoors again, Wetherspoons pubs all over the county are set to become busier than ever. And despite one of the main attractions of the free houses is that they offer the same low price food and drink no matter where you go, not all Wetherspoons are created equal. In fact, the only aspect of Wetherspoons that is consistently different in every pub across the country is the carpet design. Here we take a look at some of the best and worst Wetherspoons across Cheshire, according to TripAdvisor. Queen's Arms, Winsford (Image: Google) The Queen's Arms in Winsford is popular among locals and has an average TripAdvisor rating of 3.5 stars with 148 reviews. The majority of these reviews come from the "excellent" category. One satisfied customer was pleasantly surprised to find his wife's bag still there after accidentally leaving it behind for more than four hours. He said: "She was devastated. "We then went back to the pub not expecting anything but to our amazement the bag had been put behind the bar by a member of staff who was looking after the tables that morning. "Thank you to the staff there." Another customer was extremely pleased with the value for money. "We went to try out the steak night, I was not really expecting it to be that great as it seemed too cheap," he said. "Was I surprised! The steak was really good, tasty and tender. Overall the experience was great and such good value as you had a choice of drink too! I don't know how Wetherspoons do it, but let's hope they continue to." The George Inn, Sandbach (Image: Google) The George Inn on the High St in Sandback is rating number one for quick bites in the area by TripAdvisor. The average rating is also 3.5 stars out of more than 250 individual reviews, unfortunately, some of the more recent reviews have been far from exemplary. One customer said: "My meal was cold and we complained only to be told, “it filled a hole”. Avoid at all costs. I cook better without training, quite dreadful." Another customer who dined there in October 2020 was concerned about COVID measures: "Very disappointed, not one staff member was cleaning tables, just chatting at the bar. "Will never visit a Wetherspoons again." The Society Rooms, Macclesfield (Image: Google) The Society Rooms in Macclesfield has been given an average rating of 3 stars. One disappointed customer who was travelling for work said: "I’ve been having breakfast at this place all week as I’m working locally. "I went in this morning sat down as it’s table service only. "There was only me in the place, I sat for 10 minutes and then walked out. "If they want to do table service then they need to be more aware of people coming in. I could hear the staff talking but they never came. "Last time I use the place." Another customer echoed the same sentiment, saying that despite COVID measures, the service was poor. "Service tonight was dreadful.

. "No problem with the COVID arrangements at this establishment but the service was dreadful. "Had difficulty getting a person's attention to be served, not allowed to leave seat but kept getting ignored." The Bull and Stirrup, Chester
The Bull and Stirrup in Chester is a favourite among Chester's student population. It also has a 3.5 star rating out of more than 200 reviews and most of the reviews are in the "very good" category. One satisfied customer who praised the value for money and the service said: "Can’t beat them for prices. Food is good and their cleanliness is now much better in terms of getting tables cleaned quickly." Another had a very similar experience and said in her review: "The staff are very helpful and professional. Had the light bites and it was exceptionally good value for money." The Counting House, Congleton
The Counting House in Congleton also has a 3.5 star rating, although more of the recent reviews have been less than impressive. One reviewer was very disappointed about the wait times: "The staff are over worked and unfortunately take the feedback for the appalling waiting times. "We ordered via the app at 7.01pm, the drinks arrived at 7.42pm, the food earlier at 7.25pm. "Mr Martin loves to tell politicians how badly they're doing running the country, perhaps looking inwardly and spending a few quid more on staff, his precious bottom line could look even better."
Another reviewer who visited just last month said they probably need more staff to cope with COVID measures: "Ordered through the app and waited 20 minutes for a drink, 10 minutes later my breakfast arrived which was lukewarm. The cook refusing to do scrambled eggs. "Only two staff were serving people in the beer garden, which I felt sorry for as they were trying their best but a long walk from the bar. "Needs more staff in these times." The Square Bottle, Chester
The Square Bottle in Chester City Centre is a firm favourite among the city's shoppers due to its convenient location. It has the highest number of reviews with 559 and an average rating of 3.5 stars. However, its recent reviews haven't been very positive. The most recent from December 2020 was titled "NEVER AGAIN": "Showed to a dingy table next to three yobs who were swearing at the top of their voices, even while being served drinks by Staff, no reprimand. "Moved table and ordered a Pizza, no pizza whatsoever in the Dump. AVOID. "Cannot answer any other questions as we lifted the dust off the floor in haste to get out." Another reviewer who visited around the same time had similar complaints about the service: "Apparently, staff had other things to do, I would have thought hot food to paying customers would of been the priority! "Strangely not according to the manager but also wasn't sure what was more important as it was 'packed' though plenty of empty tables. "Usually really enjoy Wetherspoons and first time in Chester will go to a different one next time."
