“Good value @ Spoonies”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It`s always a `banker` when you pitch up to Spoons for a meal /drinks.......Paignton is no exception, nice venue, pleasant staff, expected value for money - `does-what-it-says-on-the-tin`!......Easy access when you`re legging it round town with your mates and don't have much spare time.........simples!

“Nice pub”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We usually poop in for a drink when on our way to East in the West (well worth a visit). The selection, quality and price of the beers is very good indeed.

“Typical Weatherspoons - Food & Ale good - prices excellent”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Once again we were in Paignton visiting family and ate and drank in this branch of Weatherspoons.

Staff were knowledgeable about the beers on tap and willingly offered a taster to allow me to decide on which to choose.

Food was very good value and I was particularly impressed by the fact that the fish was locally sourced (from Brixham) and a sign behind the bar gave details of this over-ruling the stated menu choice. My Haddock (menu said Cod) was excellent and well cooked. I hope this local sourcing will be rolled out across the whole chain.

So, two pleased customers and we will be back when we next visit Paignton in October.

“food is cheap but enjoyable”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I often visit the Issac with work friends for lunch there are plenty of tables and the service is always friendly and at quieter times quite fast.The food is always hot and there is a wide range of meals on the menu, there is a child friendly area, and the meal deal price is fab, they also have specials day which includes a curry and steak days
Parking is available on the street outside but it is metered the nearest car park is about 5 to 10 minuet walk but this is an advantage after the meal so you can burn some of those calories off
