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!

I have visited this pub on many occasions during my yearly visits to Exmouth, and found it a useful venue for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, providing wholesome food at a very reasonable cost, and the service is usually ok, though it can vary from day to day. The pub has a good atmosphere, and the building is quite interesting with... More

Visited this pub recently and thought a review is in need of writing fantastic spooky seasonal features eg. Halloween is here again. Lovely warm fire and brill fast and friendly food service. The 5 star food merit is matched perfectly with the high standard of cleaning eg.toilets are immaculate. A wetherspoons pub that is not run out of toilet paper... More

We have been to many spoons and we always have the same meal. Today's trip to this new spoons was disappointing. My daughter fish was tiny and when she did manage to find the fish it was very rubbery and she never eat it. My husband had the buffalo wings he asked for it on a flat plate but was... More

Apologies for your experience. Having reviewed the CCTV I can see the lady brought you out the chicken and changed the sauce at your request, no request went through on your ticket and for that I can't say sorry enough. Please feel free to contact myself at the pub to discuss this further. Regards Rebecca More
