Pre book a table if I were you this place does get busy. Five meat choices and plenty of lovely fresh cooked vegetables hot and tasty. Pleasant staff and a nice feel to the place, one of the better places to have a carvery.

Had a fabulous Sunday lunch. Full Carvery with a choice of 5 meats and a multitude of vegetable options. Stunning! Fantastic value for money. I would highly recommend a visit. I will be back to try their varied menu and specials board. ❤️

Well, it was happy hour, whatever that meant! Drinks still quite expensive.....tables dirty, bar staff rude, we gave it another try after visiting a couple of years ago.

Once removing the rocket my meal was lovely.... More

Great night at the Spinning Wheel. Great music at night and nice relaxing pub in the day time. There's a small dance floor to dance on and there's a great atmosphere

Visited the Spinning Wheel whilst on a 2 day visit to Paignton. Absolutely brilliant pub, fabulous atmosphere, great food and live music every night. Saw two fantastic bands over our 2 nights, best one for us were the red hot chilli pepper tribute band. Had the place rocking! An all round family friendly pub which then becomes the place to...
