Well, it's Wetherspoons!

I find this to be one of their nicer establishments. Family friendly, the staff are polite, and as always, good value for money. Only a few minutes walk to Paignton seafront.

Hi, Glad to hear you enjoyed the service from the team - that's our aim. Unfortunately you are correct, our carpet is a bit run down from being so busy so we're having a new one put in soon. That should spruce the place up a bit so hopefully it will be more appealing to you next time you visit... More

Have eaten here a few times now and always enjoyed it. Food is well cooked and well presented. Staff are always nice and don't harrass you every five minutes to ask how your meal is. Well worth a visit.

This is a wetherspoons pub so you know what to expect. My children are quite fussy and the pub dealt with their requests superbly - all items came as requested! i.e. gravy in a jug, custard on the side etc.
