My wife, daughter and I were in Paignton having travelled to the south west for a holiday at Butlin's Minehead and thought we would have some time here as I lived here many moons ago. We found this pub on Trip advisor and thought we'd check it out. We were there about 5pm on a Saturday night and it was... More

I don't usually leave a response but I have been to many pub chains and understand that every now and then it gets busier than expected. People leaving unnecessary bad reviews for a minor short fall through social media can be more detrimental than its worth. I have been to this wetherspoons many times over the summer and the passion... More

My wife and I are regular customers of Wetherspoon's restaurants and have used them in various locations around the country for many years. Consequently we are obviously aware that we should expect good service and good food at value for money prices. Whatever has gone wrong at The Talk Of The Town in Paignton? We went in for lunch at...

Eaten a few meals here over the summer, some have been good (curry, steak), others less so (gammon). The service has always been polite though a little slow at the bar - sometimes serving people in the wrong order. Overall it's good value but as said a little hit and miss on the food.

We came here as it was busy expecting that meant the food was good. They never came to clear our table of the previous people's glasses, even though they walked past empty handed multiple times. When our food finally arrived they still did not take away any dirty glasses, and told my partner they would be right back with sauce,... More

It is always good to find a weatherspoons because you have a good idea of the quality of the food served. They always seem to be consistent and reasonably priced which makes a change from some of the other more expensive restaurants. The pub was busy as it was during the holidays so some wait was necessary but the food... More
