If I could give this review a 0 star then I would. I visited with a group of friends on Friday night and as we hadn't pre booked sat outside - which was fair enough as it was a nice evening. We ordered our food separately as couples and as we had been caught before we specifically asked that all... More

No.The two evenings we visited were not pleasant.The service was poor and non attentive,I suspect that one of the reasons was due to lack of staff. We visit quite a few Wetherspoons on ou travels but this one is below par in terms of comfort,service and food quality compared to the other Wetherspoon establishments

This is a much better than average Wetherspoons pub. It is tastefully decorated and the food, drinks and service are of a consistently reliable standard. It is often very busy and whilst there is sometimes a bit of a wait at the bar, the food always comes from the kitchen in good time. Even with recent small price increases, the... More

In our opinion this is the best pub in Sidmouth. We visit every time we are in the area. We always have a freindly welcome. In the winter there is a log fire and a cosy feel.
