I was surprised at how good the quality of the food was considering how cheap it is, my meal was delicious and all of the sides I had ordered were delicious too. The atmosphere in the skylark is good, staff are friendly and helpful plus drinks are very cheap. Highly recommended for a tasty meal and drink.

We've just had the worst experience ever here! Took the family for a lunchtime treat as we've had nice meals here in the past but all ruined today due to poor service, lack of cleanliness and bad food!! Took 30 mins for someone to come and tell us one of our dishes was out of stock so then another 15... More

A few weeks ago myself and a few friends went to the skylark on a Thursday evening. We arrivied and we greeted by the staff in a very welcoming manner and they asked what we wanted. Throughout the evening we were able to have a laugh and a lot of jokes with the staff team. At around 11 o'clock unfortunately... More

The Skylark does everything a Wetherspoons should do. You know the drill - walk into a quiet room, see the same faces as last week, order a perfectly poured pint for a second-to-none price, enjoy your drink, repeat. The best thing about the Skylark is that a lot of the staff have been there for a few years which suggests... More

A real gem of a find in this area and its open and serving until midnight on a Sunday which was ace. The characters in there were really nice and helpful to me when I needed the toilets. I would go back in a heartbeat.

It seems that every pub now does its "Fish Friday" or whatever deals, and most seem to use it as an excuse for rubbish food and service. But the Skylark is efficient, good quality for the price, and the beer is really well-priced. It gets really busy, over two floors, but I have never had any problems with speed of... More

Popped in here for a few drinks with friends before a night out in London. We ordered a shared platter for a light meal and it tasted nice. Drinks were as they should be in a pub.

I visited this pub on a Saturday lunchtime and it was surprisingly quiet, which was good as my friends and I got served straightaway. There was a good choice of beers on offer.
