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

Having enjoyed going to the green ginger for 2 years and making good friends disappointed to see standards slip. Have pointed out to the management that every table has chewing gum deposited under the table, after over a month nothing has been done. most staff have been excellent however there are some bad apples, after a discussion about the standards...

An afternoon meal with my mother was an awful experience, I would have rather gave a homeless person the £17 we spent in there. The burgers were cold and the order was incorrect, the staff were abrupt and the whole place is dark and dingy worse than an old man bar, poorest Wetherspoon we have ever eaten in. Will not... More

Usual Wetherspoon's fare but staff are not as efficient as they could be in both serving and clearing tables even though average busyness. Cutlery a little grubby. Nice views of harbour.

We decided to have a pre-theatre meal at this restaurant as generally Wetherspoons are pretty consistent both in quality and service. Our 1st impressions on arrival was that the tables were not being cleared so they must have been busy so that was not a good omen. However as we were in Torquay off season, there was not a lot...

Had curry and a drink here last week; the food was hot and good value as expected from the Wetherspoon chain. We sat outside in the evening, which was perfect for watching the hustle and bustle of the centre. I'd like to comment on the welcoming, honest and hardworking staff. Many thanks to the young man who returned some money... More

The only good thing about this visit was I could see the firework display from the balcony ! On ordering, they couldn`t give me a bill, the till roll had run out. The red & white wine ordered were poured into wet glasses. Were told the meals would be 10 to 15 minutes, waited for 30 minutes plus. My medium-rare... More

You think that you can't go wrong with Wetherspoons but oh no! Firstly, what have Wetherspoons done to the menu? Hardly a vegetable in sight and almost every dish is spicy or covered in a sauce! On this occasion I fancied something a little plainer, good authentic pub grub but unfortunately there was nothing on offer except for Fish and... More
