Weekends they have great live bands, food is good and a great atmosphere. Bar staff are great always visit this pub when I go to paignton. You wont be disappointed. All age groups attend this pub. Not to leave out the security, they do a good job aswell as the cooks.

Just a stones throw from our accommodation, this place had very friendly staff and the food was good. The seating area at the front was a little sun trap and we visited this place a couple of time a day. They play excellent live music in the evenings and we found this a friendly place to relax.

Just getting myself started on Tripadvisor by reviewing my favourite places. The Spinning Wheel is the best in Paignton for live music in the evenings or a pint in the sun in the daytime. The food is good too I've heard although I have never been for a meal. I usually go for the live music which is always great,... More

My husband and my 3 and 5 yr-olds had dinner here when we were visiting Paignton on a long weekend holiday. It was nice to have a pint outside while my kids played on their playground in front. However, the food and beer were terrible. We didn't care for their beer selection on draught and the ribs and pizza had... More

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
