Went for breakfast with my friend, we were stood at the bar for a while waiting to be served however there were rather busy and we could only see one girl serving and making coffees. Once we had ordered we waited for about 29mins for our full English breakfasts. They were brilliant, I didn't enjoy the sausage but that us... More

Nice big space and small outside area at the back and few tables out the front. Mainly for the smokers rather than eating. Lovely food and not too crowded.

Ate here last night, great buzzing atmosphere frequented by all age groups and although reasonably busy, the service was friendly and quick. Tuesday night was Steak night with other specialties most evenings. The menu included a drink, alcoholic or soft, so made the meal very reasonable, large coffee to finish at £1.10 was also very good. Would definitely come back... More

Nothing dramatic just your average wetherspoon pub not a "WOW" place & not too bad either. Near the Vue cinema and walking distance from Paignton train station/ near bus station. Seating could do with a refurb. Some waiting staff keep looking at their phones tho-(you never know where it has touched/dropped to) ... then handling your plates. I recommend a... More

Nice typical Wetherspoons pub. Good quick service, I asked to swap the hash browns for an egg from the breakfast menu and the accommodated. Cheap food and helpful staff. The decor and ambience was much nicer than the other Paignton Wetherspoons, the Isaac Merritt.

Had the ultimate burger, love it. We sat in the rear lower section and wow it was freezing, to the point that our food cooled very quickly, may need to look at that one x

We visited several times over the Christmas period as we were staying locally at Goodrington sands. Food was ok as usual in wetherspoon but pub tatty around the edges as huge amount of traffic through the pub and struggle to clean and maintain as fast as it gets worn - problem that we have seen in plenty of wetherspoons. Food... More
