The Powder Monkey is a pleasant looking pub that I've passed many a time without going in, but yesterday I found myself in Exmouth and in need of some breakfast, so decided to give it a go. Sadly the two full English breakfasts that arrived for me and my friend were not that great. They WERE cheap, but unfortunately so... More

We ate here over the Easter break and had a good burger. It was hot well cooked with a good amount of chips. Sometimes in some wetherspoons the chips can be a bit sparse. The staff were good and efficient. My only complaint is the place is looking very scruffy and could do with a refurb. Hopefully that may come... More

Food came within 10 minutes by a friendly waitress, we all had the BBQ hog burger which was a burger topped with BBQ pulled pork, cheese, salad and onion rings and chips. It was very nice, hot and...

Great ales available, lovely selection and all very tasty. If only they had more staff serving instead of walking around pointlessly it seemed.

Hi, thanks for your comments about the ales. Apologies if it looked like staff were wandering doing nothing. We employ alot of under 18s to run our floor area and they are unable to serve on our bars, hope this clarifies what you saw. More

Knowing that Weatherspoons always provide good food and service, I was looking forward to lunch in the Powder Monkey. I wasn't disappointed by the food. The chap behind the bar was lovely but rushed off his feet. Apparently at lunch time on a Sunday, it was time to have a staff meeting or bag search or something. After a bit... More
