Description: The Oddfellows is a stone's throw away from Exeter's main shopping centre. This is a very friendly unpretentious gastro style pub, with a sociable, down to earth atmosphere. Throughout the day it is more of a café style bar, offering the best coffees in town, and becomes a gastro eating house during the evening

Been going to this bistro pub on and off for over six years. As far as Sunday lunch goes, if you are not doing it yourself there is nowhere better in Exeter in all aspects. Price is good, staff always brilliant, service just right (not too intrusive, not too distant) good choices, and for house wines difficult to beat on... More

I visited The Oddfellows in Exeter last night for a business meeting/social evening with a friend. We shared the most amazing bottle of red wine recommended by the lovely lady behind the bar. The menu was simple but delicious and we found it difficult to decide what to choose but eventually selected the breads, olives and balsamic which was a... More

Called in for lunch as had heard good reports of this place which is round the corner from the main street in Exeter. Lunchtimes in Exeter get very busy these days but Oddfellows was virtually empty, a shame because the atmosphere was non existent. Small lunch menu ; we opted for the burgers which were excellent. Not many places ask... More

Hi DevonBunny, Thank you for your review. I have reiterated the discounts to the staff for the NHS, which still do apply, we hope to see you again soon, to use your discount. At times lunch can be very hit & miss, today we were full with bookings, and Tuesday can be 5. We are just sticking by our guns... More

I booked a meal for 24 at The Oddfellows and we also used the cocktail bar upstairs. Making a large group booking was simple and staff were really helpful, especially Steph, our waitress. The food was really delicious and good value and we had a wonderful evening. The menu was lovely with local and free range meat, fish and they... More

9 of us went there for a meal. Having booked a table we arrived only to immediately be told that our food order could not be taken as the kitchen was too busy. Once food was ordered, it took 1 1/2h to come out! Food was totally over-priced and disappointing. Wouldn't eat there again.......

We've been here a couple of times for lunch with the kids, and while it looks like a good place for a night out as well, it does a decent job for family lunch, too. Relaxed atmosphere, where you can watch the chefs prepare your food. Good fresh home-made grub for the kids as well as the adults, and for... More
