My wife and I called at Wetherspoon's Green Ginger restaurant in Torquay for lunch on Monday 8 September. As regular customers of Wetherspoon's restaurants in various locations around the country, we were obviously aware that we could expect good food at value for money prices. We were certainly not disappointed in the Green Ginger. We were seated at a lovely... More

Went to the bar and waited to be served eventually the bar maid finished serving the other customer and just walked away with no explanation, eventually another barmaid arrived... More

Contemporary interior decor, very clean (and non sticky!) and friendly staff make this idea for drinks, especially with the terrace garden with lovely views and atmosphere. The shame is the food isn't as good as everything else. We galled the pulled pork sandwich and a classic burger. No rocket salad with the pulled pork (really made the dish at the... More

Wetherspoon's pubs can be a bit hit or miss but I had absolutely no problems with this establishment. I was a bit apprehensive at first as the bar appeared to be seriously undermanned but the staff to their credit dealt with everybody in a polite,cheery and enthusiastic manner. It does really make a difference. I went for a familiy birthday... More

This is the usual good basic food you can rely on . The place itself is quite large & more like a sports bar type place . But the service was good & staff friendly as always . Great chicken & steak good basic food.

The place is a restaurant until late at night and then the dance floor starts. They have very good offers for mels, I recommend the Chili Con Carne. Usually busy so the service can be a little slow sometimes. I also recommend the pitchers.

We visited Torquay and usually love having breakfast at a weatherspoons. The food was great. The only problem we found was the drunks we were surrounded by at breakfast. Who even got served before us at the bar. So they moved away. But that didn't stop them from sitting rind us. Even create a breakfast area. Or an area for... More

Called in late afternoon over the Bank Holiday weekend. Most people had come in for a pre-dinner drink or a break after shopping so it was fairly crowded with a good, cheerful atmosphere. However, the wait at the bar was far too long! Two drinks took 25 minutes to serve and those waiting for food were almost eating the glass... More

Nice food. Nice service. Nice atmosphere. Good prices. No frills done right. The only downsides were there were no relish on my burger and spicy sauce on my wife's chicken wrap which should have been separate. Other than that. No complaints.
