Wetherspoons is known for its cheap drinks, quick and easy food and toilets that always seem to be hundreds of stairs away from your seat.

There’s not much to expect when you go to a Wetherspoons, just cheap and cheerful drinks and laughs with friends.

However, many customers take to Tripadvisor to leave reviews of less than cheerful experiences in different Spoons.

Looking at Tripadvisor ratings from customers, here's how the Island's two pubs rate:

TripAdvisor rating: 3.5 (385 reviews)

The number of 'Terrible' reviews: 90

Hundreds of people have taken to sharing their experiences of The Man in the Moon on Tripadvisor.

In April one customer said: "Called into this pub whilst staying the night in Newport.
Lovely old converted chapel which still maintains many original features. Must admit when we first went in we didn’t realise it was a Wetherspoons pub but that soon became apparent."

They added: "Well must admit we were pleasantly surprised when our food came. Waitress was polite, friendly put the plates down correctly in front of us and asked if we needed anything else!

"Food was well cooked, hot and actually looked appetising on the plate.

"All in all for the price we paid we were more than happy and would definitely use again when back in area."

However, The Man In The Moon is not without its issues. Some customers reported slow and sometimes rude service.

S.Fowler and Co.

Where: 41-43 Union Street, Ryde PO33 2LF England

TripAdvisor rating: 3.5 (406 reviews)

The number of 'Excellent' reviews: 107

The number of 'Terrible' reviews: 42

A quarter of S. Fowler and Co.'s total reviews were 'Excellent', making the Isle of Wight's 'worst' Wetherspoons not that bad at all. 

In fact, TripAdvisor customers have dubbed it the fifth best 'quick bite' in Ryde.

Sharing his experience, one customer said:"Brilliant staff Chris and Barbara were so helpful as we here on holiday.

"Service quick though busy which was excellent and as always hearty cooked breakfast and loads of coffee we shall definitely return."

But not every S. Fowler & Co. customer agreed with many complaining about unwashed tables.
