Sunday roast

Great value, they had run out of turkey so we had beef, the meat and the veg was all cooked properly, it was good food and the price included a drink. Bargain!

This ideally situated bar just missed the grade . During busy times there are rarely enough staff on duty so you may need to wait to get served. lack of staff also means that tables can stay un-cleared for a long time. They have a good reputation for the variety of drinks and ales seem to be a speciality. The... More

Hi Karen, it's great to hear from you. I totally agree that we are at times understaffed. It's an issue I am working on- Kepping staff from going to Sandy Bay definately seems to be an issue- That said we have just done another recruitment drive so hope this improves. We do love our Ale, but have some great Craft... More

I really like this pub as it has interesting beers and also a very wide range of food which really caters to everyone. As a vegan I appreciate this particularly. I often have a vegan cooked breakfast here and it is excellent as well as reasonably priced, and I never have any trouble with a main course. My veggie Christmas... More

It was OK. Having walked around for a while we decided to grab a beer and sit in the garden. Sunny day, proper sun trap. Inside needs a bit of a freshen up and the beer garden was grubby and in need of updating. Not the greatest of Wetherspoons, but the beer was good

Hi, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I completely agree we need a refurb, so much business through our small old pub has taken its toll on the pub. Thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. More

I had asked for no onions on my meal and it came out with a lot, and my friends onions rings had been put on my plate even though we had ordered separately. We all commented on the blue patterned plates, and suggested that Wetherspoons were using them to hide any dirt left after washes. This put us off our... More

Hi, thanks for your review. Sorry about the confusion with the no/ add onions. Did you tell the staff? They would rectify it straight away. Onion rings when not specified on a specific meal but as a side option come out in the bowl on the nearest plate. This generally helps on delivery time too. Sorry for your disappointment and...

We visited the "Powder Monkey" whilst we were rallying in our motorhome in Exmouth, we generally look for a Weatherspoons wherever we go, I am afraid this establishment fell short of the mark.
