This was a return visit and sorry to report not as good as the first. We came for a bar lunch and loved the bar area again with roaring log fires and beautiful decor. I ordered the pastrami on sourdough, but this time no sourdough - just white baguettes which was very disappointing. Good bar selection of drinks. The service... More

The food and surroundings of this pub cannot be faulted. However the service we encountered was some of the worst we have ever experienced. The staff were rude and often absent. We had to go and find them on numerous occasions and when we did they were rude. For this reason we won't be going back.

Cosy bar area - the dog loved it. The Beef rib to share was outstanding but not too impressed with the starter and desserts.

The Marquess of Exeter is set in a beautiful village and is itself a beautiful old building, full of charm and character. Definitely more of a restaurant than a pub, it oozes a wonderful olde world atmosphere. Our party of eight booked a few weeks ahead and were a little taken aback when our arrival seemed to provoke a small... More

Had lunch here recently and was really disappointed. Service was very poor, staff were disinterested and we wished we had gone elsewhere. Also found the new deli a real let down. Someone had suggested we could get nice fresh croissants so we popped along one weekend hoping to treat the family...never again! Nothing fresh about them, they were taken out... More

Visited this restaurant Friday lunch-time with a party of five. Restaurant empty. Service was attentive, and large menu offered. My friends took a simple meal, three took fish and chips and the others a pasta dish...nothing extravagant. To say the food was ordinary is about the extent of it. This used to be a destination but it is now a... More

The Marquess of Exeter comes highly recommended so we had high hopes but were left unimpressed. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy but they appeared under-staffed which resulted in distinctly average service. Our waiter (Joe I think) was a real character and had a friendly helpful manner. Unfortunately he appeared to be the only one serving in the restaurant, resulting in... More

Stopped to have lunch here which we both enjoyed. Lunch time special was good value at around £12.50 per head for two courses. I had the fish and chips which was very nice though would have preferred chunky chips rather than fries but the fish was just perfect. My wife had the tuna steak which was gorgeous and well portioned.... More

We booked this restaurant for a long needed get together with friends that we hadn't seen for ages. Looking at the website, I remembered the chef from the Fox and Hound in Knossington so was excited that we had found what i believed to be the ideal place for this special occasion. On arrival we were greeted by Brian the... More
