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

This was my favourite Weatherspoon's until today. I orginally planned to order two beef Tenesse burgers but had to opt for the chicken because they had been out of beef for the past few days, once we had sat down a waiter approached us to tell us they were also out of the sauce that accompanies the meal and if...

The tables are hardly cleaned anymore and the food portions are have the size they used to be. On our last and final visit to the ginger was horrible there was no atmosphere, no que system people jumping... More

We've been sampling Wetherspoon pubs on our trip. This one has been the most disappointing by far. The staff at our end of the pub seemed disinterested and even trying not to be helpful, yet with just enough service so as not appear too rude. When we asked to have a messy table cleaned, it was as if we were... More

Not a great deal to say about this Wetherspoon's as it is much the same as most others. Most of you will be familiar with this chains format so i'll just say what I particularly didn't like. It is quite a large place so it is quite easy to lounge around in there for most of the day without buying... More

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
