Wetherspoons Paignton

Popped in here for a quick lunch. Was OK but not up to the usual Wetherspoon standard that I am used to. The staff were very polite and helpful however there was an issue over the lack of staff at the bar where you order food and drinks. This resulted in people arguing over who was next.

A Wetherspoon pub with great food, although more staff could be needed at peak periods, tends to get busy about 6-7pm

Was a good variety menu but the food was basic but nice and cheap. Handy for a quick lunch or if you are on a budget.

This Wetherspoon serves a very tasty breakfast with good coffee. However the ladies toilets need a deep clean. I visited on 3 seperate mornings before 11am and on all occasions the toilets were dirty and smelly. Address this one problem and a5 star rating would be achieved.

Nice food and friendly staff. We visited here for both coffee breaks and evening meals! We had one meal where the food came out a little cool but this was quickly exchanged and staff were apologetic.

My fiancé and I decided to have our dinner out whilst waiting to see the fireworks at the Paignton Regatta. The first time we went in there were no tables whatsoever which was understandable as it was a busy Friday night with everyone having the same idea as us to have dinner before watching the fireworks. We went in about... More
