We decided to eat at the Powder Monkey as I had eaten Georges Meeting House in Exeter which has always been good. It was very busy not many staff the table that we first sat at was dirty and had used glasses and a dirty cup on it, when another table became free we moved to that one but that... More

Decent enough Wetherspoons but could do with a bit of a refurbishment as the pub just felt a little bit tired. My friends and I sat outside and the chairs are extremely heavy, some ladies next to us struggled to move the chairs to make more space. Good choice of beers and as per usual the prices were favourable.

Came here with the small ones and the staff were more helpful than expected. Cost of the meal was good but quality was a little below average compared to other Wetherspoons I've been to. Very helpful and good natured staff and good location. A little spending on interior decor wouldn't go a miss but I would happily go again for... More

My friends & I had lunch here & where the upholstery needed a lot of attention as it was badly stained from greasy food or drink which had been dropped over it at sometime. Our meals were all ordered at the same time but alas the kitchen staff/ chef could not send them all out together. Some drinks were included... More

Hi, thanks for taking time to comment. Sorry you found the furniture in disrepair, we are awaiting a refurbishment. The policy is to send out tickets, so even if you were the same table it would be one ticket at a time, I hope that helps to clarify. There is a tab at the bottom of the menu that details... More

We use Weatherspoon's a lot as they are usually fair service and fayre at reasonable prices but have to say this Weatherspoon's was not run of the mill. On entry the place is very clean, not shabby or in need of updating like most are. We only had breakfast but the staff were very friendly and attentive, even coming over... More

We had breakfast here this weekend, very reasonable and the food was good. It's a Wetherspoons so you know exactly what you will get for your money. Always reasonable and editable.

It was a rainy day and needed somewhere to eat and to dry off, chose Powder Monkey as we have been here before. We was lucky as the pub was busy but we found a table that had just been cleaned and there was 7 of us so it was a perfect spot. The is a large array of meals... More

Wetherspoons seems to have it bang on when it comes to value for money, sadly service etc can be very hit and miss. Hats off to the staff of the the powder monkey for fantastic customer service. It was very busy during our visit staff apologised for the delay and served us with a smile. A few mistakes were made... More
