Paul is the perfect host!

Lost count of the number of times I've eaten here, and it's always good. Inventive cooking, good local ales, great surroundings, and friendly service. The perfect gastropub!!

Heard great things about this venue, we were disappointed at the selection also the standard of the food. Polite helpful smiling staff, but it didn't make up for the disappointing food.

I use the word 'slightly' in the title very loosely. This was our 2nd visit and whilst we were blown away with the food but disappointed with the slow service, it was sort of the opposite this time. The service was quicker but the food (albeit, still very good) didn't blow us away like the 1st visit. Still would definitely... More

Came here as a party of 7 the night before our wedding. From the welcome we received we knew it would be a great evening. We started with drinks in the bar which had a selection and comfy seats. Then the food...which was amazing. Everyone agreed that their dish was the best they had had for a long time. Service... More

With regard to the review of 6th june the waitresses must have been fired by now. To be sure the male staff had a certain arrogance about them but the young blonde waitress was really friendly. Do not get me wrong, the guys were fine but they did have a certain air about them - the service from them was... More

Five of us out together decided to try this gastro pub having heard lots about it. 4 of us chose off the specials menu, the fifth from the a la carte for the main course. Mostly those who ate from the specials rated it 6 out of 10, and the person who had duck thought 8 out of 10. The... More

Went here with clients at their suggestion and it was great. On arrival the place looks like a decent country pub in the middle of nowhere with old fashioned furniture. Our welcome was extremely warm and service throughout was very good and certainly on a par with good London eateries. The food was first class - beautifully cooked and presented... More

We attended on our first night in Exeter. Really enjoyed the food and drinks. The service was good and they also arranged to get us back to the hotel. We returned the next night for drinks after having been in Exeter allday

I've been here twice within the past two weeks because the first visit was so wonderful. Everything just works here. The pub is comfortable, nicely done out with large dining areas. On arrival we were given menus and shown into the lounge area whilst our drinks orders were taken. We were then shown to our table, already prepared with bread... More

Lovely food at a good price, friendly staff, it was very busy so probably worth booking! Definitely recommended I will book next time I'm in the area!
