We decided to eat here as were in Paignton for the day. We were 4 adults and 2 children. When we arrived the place was absolutely heaving but we found a suitable table. The table was wet from beer glasses but cleaned it with wipes. As it was so busy, we expected to wait for quite a while but were... More

This venue is quite large and is always very busy, which is why I was rather surprised that there was only 2 staff at the bar serving drinks and taking food orders. The food which was hot and very tasty, was bought to the table very quickly by a very polite though quiet man. During the meal another man came... More

Staff are brilliant, even when there really busy. The staff said we would have a wait for food but food arrived quicker than we expected. Quality food with extensive menu should be something for all tastes Would recommend

This place is okay. It's not the best and it's looking a little past it's best. The food is very average, not very inspiring, but cheap. Some good ciders, can get a cup of tea and the service is reasonable timely.

We use Wetherspoon pubs weekly and are usually happy when we do. Came away for a mini break to Paignton so popped in for dinner. Very suprised to see dirty tables, nor cleared etc, I cleaned ours off. We ordered and had a 45 minute wait even though people sitting around us who'd arrived after us were served their food....
