We visited here last Saturday, I've not been here for a while but have been to their Carvery plenty of times over the last few years.. Decided to try out their Christmas Party Menu with a couple of friends after being disappointed by a nearby venue last year. All I can say about the visit is 'Wow'- you really know... More

During a 2 night stay my friend and i attrnded here both nights. It offers entertainment every night and we thoroughly enjoyed the karaoke and quiz nights. Its a pub with a real locals feel but not being local didnt stop the staff from making us feel very welcome. The main staff we met who were absolute superstars were sadie... More

Cracking place although probably could get a bit manic during busy times. Great selection of beers served by very welcoming staff.

Had a lovely carvery in here with my family today. Great selection of meats, also a great selection of vegetables. The staff were lovely and friendly, cleared the tables quickly after we had finished. Didn't take any photos unfortunately but it was lovely. Only problem I found was that it wasn't very spacious other than that it was lovely.

Had a couple couple of nights entertainment. Great staff and fair prices with food and drink. Had a great time at their quiz night which was free to enter and a good cash prize. Jam nights have local talent and they really are talented too. Great place to visit

Let me start by saying that me and my friend are regulars at the Spinny and usually have a great night there. Reading some of the other reviews on here though I don't think we would be the only ones to say that they have a serious issue with their door staff. Tonight myself and my friend went over to...

We visited twice during our holiday in Devon and stopped for lunch both times. The menu was varied and the food was delicious and served piping hot. Eating out on holiday is a luxury because our dog is usually with us so it was a big plus that our dog was welcomed inside too, especially as it was late in... More
