A great steak night.

A trip around the Torbay towns, steak night in Torquay before theatre in Paignton ... bliss! We know what food standards to expect from this popular chain, 14oz Aberdeen Angus for me Smothered Chicken for the good lady did not disappoint, though I commented to her that the chain are generally a bit... read more

Been here several times over the past few years and it seems to get worse! Breakfasts have been inedible. Coffee undrinkable and on my last visit they didn't ever have ice. Add in dirty toilets and uncleared tables and this is a place to avoid.

Had a steak for dinner. Was cooked to perfection . Very cheap prices . Only downside was being served lager in a beer glass and some of the clientel were a little rough around the edges

Very often chain pubs (This is part of the weatherspoons chain), get a bit of a rough review but I have to say what a lovely spacious place it is, and when we were there the food was of a really good quality and the staff were attentive and very polite . Would defiantly recommend it to holiday makers for... More

Working in the Devon and Cornwall area for most of the summer and always use Wetherspoons for a place to eat and relax. The green ginger was definitely one of the best I have visited. In the 3 times I have visited the food has always been very nice and to a high standard and the service was also excellent.... More

Despite the pub being quiet, all empty table had glasses everywhere and had to ask for them to be cleared. Staff were really friendly and helpful, made my visiting family feel very welcome, food cooked perfectly especially my angus steak, absolutely beautiful even if half my chips appeared to have been left behind in the kitchen. Cider was good too.... More

In comparison to other wetherspoon pubs this wasn't the best, the top bar didn't have many drinks available- no point in having it really! Long waits at the main bar- you seemed to wait for ages. The waitress's and waiters were attentive and run off their feet, seemed under staffed. The toilets were appalling looking at the cleaning log on... More

Visited for a meal during holidays, but decided otherwise when plates with food left overs were left on table for over an hour. Staff obviously stretched The area we were in was messy , food on floor. Not nice experience.Bar Staff were friendly and helpful. Contacted Wetherspoons over 1 week ago, no response.

Went here for steak night on Tuesday. The service was very good, the food arrived promptly and was cooked as we requested. Excellent value for money and polite friendly staff.
