One delighted punter wrote: "My husband and I like to treat ourselves to a breakfast on a Friday morning before starting work. Wetherspoon pubs are known as being cheap and cheerful so we were a little dubious of what the quality would be like. We were pleasantly surprised.

"The price was very reasonable, a varied range of choices on the menu, service was quick and most importantly the food was great. I would definitely recommend The Standing Order, in Stevenage Old Town for breakfast."

One positive review read: "As with most Wetherspoons the prices are very good, for both food and drink. Our food was served quickly and came out very hot, unlike some places. This is a good sized pub. Plenty of seating inside and a few outside as well. Staff were very friendly and helpful."

A happy punter wrote: "This is a great example of the chain and somewhere I’d happily return to in the future for a drink. While in the centre of the town and having a great location it’s also rather hidden, being tucked down a small side street and away from the busy shopping road.

"Out the front is a lovely garden with lots of tables and seating, complete with umbrellas. Inside is also really nice with loads of seating types throughout the relaxing area, with a wonderful ceiling worth admiring. The staff behind the bar weren’t the friendliest but at least there were enough of them to prevent any long wait."

The Full House - Hemel Hempstead

3.5/5 stars

35 excellent

27 terrible

Based on 171 reviews

One review read: "We visited a couple of times and we’re impressed by the atmosphere, staff and food. We eat out regularly, in all sorts of places, but have now decided to make this place a weekly event.

"You really can’t go wrong. The food is very good, the atmosphere chilled and the staff are friendly and efficient. No sticky tables to be found. What’s not to like? Keep up the good work!"
