Not sure if this is national but today's Special at Wetherspoon, West Kirby, Wirral is 6oz burger and chips £2.99. Great price

Probably not national price as they have local pricing policies. For example, the steak club is £5.85 in Scunthorpe and £7.35 in Brigg even though they are only 9 miles apart.

They would have over ordered on burgers, so just getting rid of them.

not in London

Yeah my local does a similar deal. Sometimes even curry and rice for £1.99.

Free drink as well?

Spoons food is just so bad, awful quality.

I work in spoons part time, this won't be national, just a local deal.

Can't expect world class food for how cheap it is. The food is fine, nice pub grub!

Cold, its just a food special to get rid of/ avoid wasting food thats going out of date.

It's funny how so many people say how awful Wetherpoons food is. Yet the majority would walk into Nando's, eat an average portion of chips and a chicken breast burger, and tell their friends how great it was.

I guess it's all about branding, people assuming that Wetherspoons is full of 18 year olds getting their pints of fosters in, so the food must be awful. When in actual fact food the food is pretty good, and very good value.

Wetherspoons does however seem to be going in the same direction as Lidl and Aldi, with people realising that actually you can get decent food for a decent price, and the snobbery against it is gradually wearing off.

Compared to what? I've paid over a tenner for burger and chips in restaurants and I've enjoyed them less than Wetherspoons. The burgers used to be horrible Rustler type things, but now they are pretty legit IMO.

Spoons is probably one of the safest places to eat out as well - most of them have 5 hygiene ratings so to say it's awful quality is just daft.

Some of the latest Wetherspoons are beautiful places. Hitchin, just opened, is a fantastic pub, and has convinced (some of) the local snobs already.
Yes, it's mass produced food cooked to a certain standard, but so are many more establishments perceived as more up-market.

That comment is about right.
My local one was mad about 10 years ago , more busy "all the time" than anything else and i stopped going.
Went back about 2 years ago and love it , my local now.
The food is dead on , I challenge anyone to beat the chicken and rib combo on the steak night!
Good eclectic crowd , no loud music or pointless sports on 20 TV's , wide variety of ales and ciders.
Whats not to like?

Double thumbs up from me for Spoons, Beer fest starts tomorrow too. X)

Yes but posting a positive comment wouldn't have gained A1RN the attention they so dearly crave. The product and retailer are immaterial.

They're cooked on a clam griddle, like most fast-food establishments.

You'd pay three quid in most pubs just for the chips!

My spoons in Reading is a well run pub with loads of local ales. The manager is a knob but he keeps the place clean and the tossers out. That it's cheap is secondary to how nice it is. And the food is good so there!

Then why does everything taste so bad? It's not about snobbery, I appreciate you get what you pay for and you shouldn't expect haute cuisine. But a handful of soggy chips and a burnt burger...that seems to be the standard across all the ones I've been to.

On a purely value versus quality basis, spoons is pretty much perfect

tried their burgers, i remeber lifting it off the plate up to my face grease ran down both arms and it stank...
whatever filler they stick in the burgers is rank, oe maybe i just had a bad one, i do like Buffalo chicken wings though

Damn right! & i'm a very satisfied customer,my kid has learnt to eat out & not annoy the **** out of others as a result of parenting values & regular trips to spoons since she was a nipper, & I'm a right demanding so & so where food & customer service is concerned I assure you, yet to have a bad experience in a spoons, (anticipate it will be along time coming) ..if there is ever a cock up with ording (e.g suddenly being out of something) a server is very apologetic & seems to mean it! ...service that makes all the difference imho.

My kid also learns that eating out / pub environments aren't just an excuse to get bladdered but to socialise, frankly i'd have to be bladdered or desparate to go in a Mcdonalds / Nando's ..knowing the attitude & lack of vfm.

Long may spoons do what they do, they excel (for the money) making going out affordable rather than a rarity!
(& the aged steak is pretty darn good too, had the best ever at one just a fortnight back, beautifully rare yet so, tender & well charred, have payed far more for lesser quality)

Wetherspoons have my thanks!

Very true

ta op! yes our local has started a monday club as it's always quiet. for two pounds fifty ham egg n chips and a big tasty portion and wine is 2.20 for 17ml! you can't go wrong really as in our local pub wine is 4.50 to 4.75 a glass!!! Also rather than a burger we tend to have chicken burger which is actually a chicken breast in a burger bun with chips and an alcoholic drink for less than a fiver!

I have never had a soggy chip in any spoons, if anything they are too dry. Not that I'm complaining. Spoons snobbery methinks.

i think there foods good as the quality is pretty consistent

the beef burgers are a bit ropey so i normally get the chicken breast.they dont do the 2 types of chicken now though

That's strange, because I've have the chips countless times over the couple of years, particularly last year at uni, and I never had ate anything close to soggy chips. What's more, if you were to pay for and receive a "handful of soggy chips", a quick word with the manager or member of staff would have soon sorted that out, no?

i remember when you got a pint aswel for this price!!

I'll be honest, if I pay £3 for food and it's not great, I won't bother calling the manager over. Life's too short to send bad food back.

To be fair, Nando's is 10x better than Weatherspoons - which is just all ding ding food.

Not knocking it as I go there myself, but the food is pretty bland - eat there for convinience or when I'm on the pop

To be fair the sorry ronnie was an awful burger, glad it went.

I do miss the lamb burger.

When the Chips are down.... eat them. heat

Good deal, however it is no different to my local charging £5.99 and over a free drink with it.

O, well I have been to Southampton, but I have never been to Scunthorpe...

Spoons breakfast is top drawer

The grub is good and great value for money. Beer is cheap compared to my other local £3.50 pint of fosters. And the Wealdstone raider drinks in my local weatherspoons. (not sure if that's a good thing)
