This is a very average weatherspoons, the bar service was good did not have to wait for more than two minutes. The food was to the usual weatherspoons standard cheap but you get what you expect. The let down was they did not have enough people clearing the tables so it was difficult to find a clean table.

The staff were amazing deserved a credit for their hard work, helpfulness and always willing to help. They were ran off their feet but nothing was a problem . Deserve a pay rise for their royalty.

Visited on two occasions in the evening and once for breakfast. On the first occasion my wife's Noodle dish had the taste of washing up liquid. It was taken back but she had to opt for something different. There was no problem with the way the complaint was handled but she was very disappointed. On the other two occasions we... More

A Weatherspoons establishment. Good food with very good Service. Very good value for money. Tables could have done with wiping.

We went in on a Friday for a quick meal, we had the Friday fish with a drink and ended up staying the whole of the evening. Great atmosphere and good prices.

We spend a lot of time in this wetherspoon pub but it's getting really bad lately. Ordered food was quick being cooked as could see it sat on the pass. It was really quiet so can't understand why it took so long to bring to table. Maybe because waitress kept going up to it moving it about then walking off!... More

Visited this pub whilst in the Torbay area, it's certainly better than the other Wetherspoons establishment in the town as it is modern whereas the other pub is a bit tired and dated in my opinion. There is a small outside terrace which is nice but there isn't much off a view! As there didn't seem to be many pubs... More

Mention "Wetherspoons" to anyone, and most people will think of cheap fare, slow service and sticky tables. All this is true of the "Talk of the Town". But why do they market themselves as "family friendly" when they turn away well-behaved dogs? Do they not realise that, increasingly for many older people, and for families, a dog these days is...
