We ate here on Tuesday (Steak night) when selected dishes+ a drink were £7.99. Very good value, for large portions of freshly cooked hot food. Have to order at the bar, where there is no queuing system - staff need to try and check that some sort of 'order' exists. (As a female, I often feel that I am invisible... More

Hi Ruby067 Thank you so much for your review, we do strive to offer good quality whilst keeping our prices low. Tuesday steak club is our most popular club! I am sorry the service at the bar slowed down the ordering process, there is a system that should of course be in place and staff should be ensuring that all... More

Stopped here for cuppa tea, staff and service efficient tea good. As with most wetherspoons looking a bit shoddy could do with freshening up.

Full marks to Cameron who served me. When I asked for a glass of Pimms he actually checked first to see what ingredients they had. He then said "sorry I don't have any cucumber, mint or apple". Do you still want it?? I thought this was great as so many places just make it up and when you ask where... More

We arrived in Paignton late Thursday evening and so decided to go to Wetherspoons for a quick bite. We had the Curry and it was very mediocre together with the service. Staff quite miserable.

Hi NewYorkDivaBeckie So pleased you enjoyed your visit with us and thank you for the five star review! Unfortunatley it is company policy that dogs (except guide dogs) are not allowed in the building, however, the seating area outside the front of the building welcomes dogs, and of course we provide drinking water on request.

For a large chain Wetherspoons have got it right on price. Themed lunches with drinks are a good option, example two toasties and chips with 2 pints for under 9 quid, what's not to like? Good selection on menu to suit most tastes. Okay staffing levels a bit down so table clearing a bit haphazard but the busy bar staff... More

Hi Richard A Thank you for your comments and review. Wetherspoons does strive to be unbeaten on value for money, as well as the variety of deals we offer. I can only apologise for the access facilities not being available for your use. In theory it is only accessable through the use if a radar key held at the bar,... More
