When travelling I have always trusted Wetherspoons. I have not been to this one for a couple of years and went in on 20/2/15 - what a mistake. The place is filthy dirty. When we finally found a table it was covered in left over food, plates and empty glasses. (Many other tables were the same where visitors have cleaned... More

Dined here with 6 other family members. We ordered steak, chicken dishes and they were cooked perfect. The restaurant wasn't busy but there was lots of uncleared tables so we took the empty plates/glasses to the bar. The pub is very dark,hardly any lighting. Turn the lights on!

I felt it was a bit dark and dingey, worn around the edges and ok if you're looking for a traditional dirty pub but if you want somewhere to take the family or a date I wouldn't bother.

Fab atmosphere, great music and friendly bar staff! Special thanks to Emma for organising a few things prior to our visit. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Keep up the... More

Very large and always busy Wetherspoon pub across from the inner harbour. One of two in Torquay, this one tend to attract the younger crowd in the evenings, keeping the doormen busy.

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
