I came here with the intention of having a pre lunch drink with friends after a morning shopping. When we went in our feet stuck to the floor which set alarms bell ringing. We thought we would sit in the window on a settee, but the only vacant one had no cushions, just the base. The tables were filthy and... More

Can't comment on the food as we didn't stay long enough. Torn seating and dirty tables put us off, the place was filthy.

The Green Ginger needs a complete make... More

I'm quite a fan of Wetherspoons - always a good choice for a quick cheap pub lunch with a drink included! Always a bargain! The food here was good, however we didn't feel very welcome. I appreciate there are many people at the bar trying to order food and drinks but it would have been nicer if the barmaid had... More

I loved the fact that there was plenty of room and seats were easy to get to. The bar served great coffee and my husband is a great fan of the real Ale they serve. I have no complaints about the food as it was well cooked an plentiful. Staff were polite and helpful.

We had our first visit here on a day trip to Torquay. Its a lovely large and airy pub with plenty of seating. The staff we encountered were very friendly. We ordered the gourmet Chicken Burger and the Pulled pork Sandwich, you get so much with them, they are really filling and excellent value for money. The pub is in... More
