We went for a drink and a meal on a wet Sunday in October 2014. My only complaint was that the barman had no idea about the real ales offered commenting that he was a "lager" person but he did arrange for someone more knowledgeable to help me. The 2 special beers (an American Pale Ale & a Brewdog Lager)... More

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.
