I visited the spinning wheel on a family holiday in August 2014 and on entering the building we were greeted with some of the worst customer service I have ever experienced! I ordered a Devon cream tea but didn't want the coffee or tea with it but a cold drink instead and was told that 'the price comes as a... More

After having a couple of drinks with friends, decided to have a chicken wrap of some kind. It was poor. The chicken was so dry and the fact that the wrap had no sauce meant it was almost inedible. I know this place is renowned for its food, but a chicken wrap is basic. The bar lacks the atmosphere it... More

We had a lovely meal which I was pleased with bearing in mind the bill was on the high side. The only downside, we had to chase our sweet as this had been forgotten.

We went to the Spinning Wheel twice in one day. Firstly for lunch before a day of digging on the beach. The food was beautiful, the jackets were proper ones - not microwaved ones. The childrens meals were wonderful and the guest beers were much appreciated. We returned later in the afternoon for a cream tea and I have to... More

Decent pit stop with kids so they can play on playground. Standard pub grub, nothing special but nice. A little bit slow but it was a hot day in August.

An affordable venue for drinks and entertainment. Plenty of room both inside and out, entertainment every night, late and later bars too. A good place to end the night, having eaten elsewhere.

My partner and I visited 'the spinny' today for a Sunday carvery and we were both left very unimpressed. It comprised of a few frozen potatoes that had been fried to within an inch of their lives. An odd selection of under and overcooked vegetables and meat so full of fat that it was inedible. For £6.95 you can surely... More
