It has been known to get a bit rough on weekend nights, but during week days there is little wrong, the food is adequate, and the service o.k., the location is very good, and exepting night time, I would take the Familly here...

We were here for a wake. We got here just before the big race at Cheltenham. Great atmosphere. The place has lots of character and great views off the balcony. The food especially the chocolate cake was nice

Perfect for families and singles, this is probably the best pub/restaurant on Paignton Esplanade. It is right opposite the cinema and the children's play area. Always busy but food is excellent, live music and dance floor. This is a family business and the owner is a great guy,.

My wife and I went to the spinning wheel on a Friday night. The sign outside stated there was live music so we decided to 'check out' the band. We arrived before the band stared, so we managed to get a seat and plenty of drinks. The pub it self has plenty of character, plenty of seating and most of... More

when we go to Paignton we alway call into the spinning wheel inn for a drink. They have good bands playing on a weekend and a dance floor. It is a large pub and has a second floor with more seeting. I wouldnt take children there though.

The day clouded over so we headed for the nearest attractive pub. A choice of two; this and the nearby Irish pub called Murphy's. Fortunately we made an excellent choice. It's very olde-worlde with low ceilings and sturdy wooden beams, cosy but commodious with plenty of corners and nooks in which to enjoy food and drink. Doubtless it's one of... More
