This is by far the worst Weatherspoons we have eaten in. The atmosphere is distinctly 'dingy' and the food we had was terrible. I chose a chilli baked potato ... the potato itself was dry and floury with no pats of butter and the chilli poured over the potato was minimal with an extremely low meat content and not at... More

Quite possibly the worst food I've ever had in one of these chains, I'm not sure how you can mess up nachos,but they managed it!

Visited today for Fish on Friday and was amazed at the friendly staff, and very quick service, even though they were busy. The food was delicious, generous in portion and very fresh. It was also lower price than I paid for the same dish in Paignton last week (see my review on Trip Advisor). This was a very enjoyable visit,... More

Visited on a Tuesday night, steak club. Loads of people eating which just goes to show what a well organised pub it was. Thought I'd try a few of their new sixpoint craft ales. Fantastic. Staff were busy but couldn't do enough for the customers. Toilets were immaculate. I will definitely be visiting again. One word brilliant.

We popped into the powder monkey on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Service was good and quick. The large breakfast was very nice and well cooked. Quite a dated wetherspoons now but still as always good value for money.

Ate twice in this pub, and food was good and plentiful I think it is hard to beat this type of chain for value. The menus include calorie count, and there are many 'meal plus pint' or 'meal plus soft drink' deals. Tried a burger and chicken, both were good, plates and cutlery spotless. Some nice ales, and American IPAs,... More

And this pub has a big noticeboard for CAMRA events in the foyer. Ale well up to the Cask Marque standard and "as cheap as chips". £1.90 for a pint of local brew - just surprised that they find a market for tinned beer. As with all Wetherspoons you know what you're getting by way of food and this was... More

I was lucky enough to turn-up on steak night so I had an 8oz rumpsteak and all the trimmings with a pint of Abbot Ale for about £6. To put this into perspective a pint of Abbot Ale is the thick end of £4 in many parts of the country. It was very busy, however there was plenty of seating... More
