We always look forward to our trips to The Powder Monkey as food and drink not only tastes good but is inexpensive too. I recommend the Chicken Korma for £4.99 you get 2 poppadoms, naan bread and a generous portion of chicken korma and rice....More

We went to The Powder Monkey for the first time on Sunday for a coffee. I loved the canon outside the entrance and loved the history of how the pub has got its name. Sevice was quick and the coffee was good. A really nice...More

Very quick service good customer service at the bar. The only thing stopping it from being perfect was overcooked eggs on the ham egg and chips. Best chips I've had in a while.

This was a typical Wetherspoons pub clean and tidy with cheap food and drinks. £7 for a cocktail and a pint of kronenbourg you just can't go wrong. Although we didn't eat the food that was being served looked really good.

This is a standard weatherspoons, with poor service the guy behind the bar was more interested in telling his friend about all of his conquests than serving. There were glasses on a few tables and it was not even that busy. There are nicer places...More
