As a fan of Wetherspoons pubs, the powder monkey was a lovely pub to have a pint. The food was excellent as well.

For good honest grub at a good honest pub that understands beer and provides good service and real value for money Weatherspoons takes first prize. Usually. The Powder Monkey can do it too but has problems holding a reliable standard. The good news is that it is a real family diner just a ten minute walk from a fun beach... More

Inside dark and dreary....maybe they are trying to recreate the powder monkey's world inside a ship (?). Menu extensive but the usual 'pub chain' fayre. 2 of their 3 real ales were unavailable; apparently too busy to change the barrels. Only Diet Pepsi available on the soft drink pump.They did have time it seemed, to be playing games behind the... More

Thanks for your review. I am shocked to hear about the real ales- we dont keep 3 on it's actually 8 available; we do like to make sure we clean the lines before any ales go back on too- you will always have atleast 4 available. I am so sorry to hear about the delay on food- we did achieve... More

Had a lovely meal for 9 here, when we visited August Bank Holiday. Was busy but the food was very good and staff great.No faults found for the price.

Yes a typical Wetherspoons with a good range of local real ales. My wife went with the Bells whisky. For a busy Bank Holiday there was sufficient space & the bar was well run

Powder Monkey is a Weatherspoons pub. We went there on a Thursday 'curry day' . We actaully ordered a 'Surf and Turf' - with a stilton sauce and Ham egg and chips, 2 pints of Thatchers and a Bombay with tonic. All served promptly and of a reasonable standard. The big plus the cost - £20.79. Simply superb value.

Semi resident in Exmouth we frequently eat out for breakfast, one advantage The Powder Monkey has for us is that you can visit and eat before the shops and other eating places are open. During a recent visit we were disappointed to note that a waitress was wiping her nasal area with the back of her hand and without washing... More

As visitors to Exmouth we were looking for something cheap and cheerful and this ticked all the boxes. Good food, good price and good service, couldn't fault it.
