Great for all

A good place to go for cheap drink and good food, recommended to all and those with children. Access for wheel chairs is there and the location is good as it's at the beginning of the town centre.

It was raining so hard in sunny torquay so green ginger seemed the obvious choice for an English fry up. I was more than pleasantly surprised it was by far the best wetherspoon breakfast i have ever had. Lovely staff lovely hash browns everything spot on.

Wetherspoons must be disappointed with this place! I am a frequent visitor to wetherspoons - up and down the country and usually like what I find - cheap, cheerful with good food. The Green Ginger was a massive disappointment. Looks interesting from the outside but dark, dingy and depressing when you get inside. Food was basic, clientele were appalling, staff... More

Fairly clean place, had drinks and a curry tonight, had to send the popadums back as they were just big crisps full of grease, we also didn't get any nam bread, not great quality and would give it a miss next time we visit this area.

My wife and I visited The Green Ginger yesterday (21/07/15) we noticed it was steak club and ordered 2 of the 14oz Aberdeen Angus steaks. We were not told by the bar staff out food would take the 40minutes that we had to wait. We were further annoyed by the fact that our table number was given out for another... More

Possibly the strangest location yet, upstairs in a shopping mall. However, good old wetherspoons didn,t disappoint, usual busy atmosphere and everything up to scratch. Also try their sister pub, The London, over the road.

While located in such a beautiful building, the venue itself is reeking of puke. With poor lighting this place looks so gloomy and sad. The poor lighting probably covered up the stains on the carpet though.

I have rated this establishment as 'very good' in that as with other Wetherspoons establishments there is a consistency. If you want a quick inexpensive early breakfast then this is the place.

Good value for money, but a bit dark inside. A building that looks better outside than in. If you want good value food and drink then this is probably your best option, but if you want a bit of character then not.
