We went to the Powder Monkey for a meal before Christmas with my two young children. The premises was dirty and our table was sticky. We ordered some food nonetheless as the kids were hungry. After a long wait our food arrived...luke warm. My 5 year olds food was smoothered in a spicy sauce. He immediately burst into tears upon... More

This is what you expect a quick and budget place to have some lunch. Pretty busy but lots of tables. Food was ok and very quick to be served after ordering. No complaints. There are probably nicer places to eat, but for value for money this is excellent.

No defrosted Carrot Cake, at 11am, so unable to have the coffee and cake offer. Beer on hand pump, turned out to be off, and had been unavailable for weeks. Then offered a Left Over from Christmas piece of Cheesecake, to go with my coffee. I took my coffee and alternative beer and was seated. Quarter of an hour late,... More

Hello Mrs Kay. Thanks for your review that you advised me you had already posted when I called about your complaint. I was happy to hear you received your coffee and cake voucher. As discussed our 'Xmas cake promotion' was running instead the carrot cake offer, but after your feedback I shall enquire as to whether we can run both... More

Staff work hard to clear tables and talk to customers in this busy pub in the centre of Exmouth. It is not as smart in appearance as other Wetherspoons in the area, but it is ok for a beer and quick meal. Spacious lounges downstairs and quiet areas if you want to chat. The food ordered was of the usual... More

My husband visited on Tuesday night for steak night and asked me to write a review as he isn't register with trip advisor. He said the 14oz Aberdeen Angus steak was the best he'd ever had in any Wetherspoons. He travels up and down the country as a lorry driver and has visited many Wetherspoons pubs, some good some bad,... More

Went to this pub on a Thursday for a curry, good selection / good taste and very reasonable price, this pub seems like it can cater well for families looking at the menu.

When in Exmouth we often visit The Powder Monkey as its not only good prices but quality of food is nice too. We went on a busy saturday afternoon and despite being part of a large group we had no problems in finding a table. The bar was busy but soon got served, and there was a 10 minute wait... More

We had a great Wetherspoons breakfast here this morning which was brilliant value for money at £3.95 per person. This was just what we needed!
