Waited for a drink. Waited, waited, walked out Does anyone from JDW bother to read any of these reviews people post? I haven't walked out of both JDW in Torquay and for the same reason. Mind you I have done the same in Southampton, Basingstoke and Winchester. Train your staff Mr Martin!

food here was absolutely amazing, and when stock ran out (for me it was naan bread and poppadoms on the curry), they more than compensated with other side orders, giving a couple of extra free items on the plate! Went here loads over the holiday, a little dark but the large windows of the harbour and the outside balcony seating... More

I visited this Weatherspoons while on holiday. It is very dark and dreary if you are not able to get a table by the window. The bar staff were not friendly at all. The meals were served in a reasonable amount of time. The food was the usual Weatherspoons standard.

Situated close to the harbour in Torquay, it seems a prime spot for an early morning Sunday breakfast. Although the interior has a hint of a 1980's club, the breakfast is very good. It is intimidating having to ride the gauntlet through seasoned drinkers who are sitting at the table by the door at 9 o'clock in the morning. The... More

First time that we have tried Green Ginger (J D wetherspoon) Torquay. Can well understand why it was packed as the menu offers good value and very cheap beers or wine. Food ok, slightly over cooked UV. Popular though.

But maybe this was because it was very busy and a Saturday lunchtime. Could do with extra staff during busy periods to help on the bar area and to cleaning tables. Food arrived quickly and acceptable for pub-grub but not amazing.

I decided to take my family in for breakfast on the 15th October 2014. On entering the property I was taken aback by how dirty the place was, the carpets were filthy, and it stank of stale beer like you get in an old man's public house rather than a supposedly family friendly pub. Finding a table that was fit... More

This is your typical wetherspoons. Warm, clean and cheap. Beer was good. Toilets mean. The barmaid however wasn't the best. She was busy chatting and we had to ask 3 times for a drink. Having said that it's worth a visit
