Good but not in my top 10 for restaurants Exeter

Very enjoyable but to be honest it wasn't as special as I'd thought it was going to be given the reviews on trip advisor and the glowing recommendations from friends. Maybe we just caught them on an off night, or perhaps the Chef had prepared the food in advance and the had a rare night off? Who... read more

We went here today for Sunday lunch and chose the 3 course option. We were seated next to the lovely fire and service was fab! Our food was excellent! Absolutely great value for money. Lovely atmosphere. Will definitely go back!

Had Sunday lunch here recently. The Manor Inn was easy to find with GPS. As we entered the inn, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. Which was very close to the fire place. It was a cold day so we welcomed the seating location. We went for the set menu of the roast with all the trimmings.... More

Had lunch with friends here (again) yesterday and it was a real treat. The food was excellent - my vegetarian wellington and chocolate tart were superb - well worth coming off my diet for a day. Staff super-friendly - beer excellent too. We would have been better off coming here for a recent celebratory meal instead of the option we... More

I wanted somewhere special for my other half and myself to enjoy a Sunday roast and it occurred to be a perfect place. Extremely warm welcome, great choice on the menu, very prompt and attentive service, delicious food, competitive prices and the venue clean and cosy.

The food was excellent as was the very friendly, attentive service. We would recommend this fine establishment anytime and despite the fact that our son is no... More

Friends have said this is their favourite eating pub locally, so we went with them for a small group Christmas lunch - & very glad we did ! A very warm welcome to a well laid out restaurant / bar, the turkey etc. cooked extremely well & the staff were very attentive. Good local beers, & I enjoyed a decent... More

We have been here several times over the last couple of months, twice for an evening meal and twice for Sunday dinner. Every meal has been delicious, the vegetables cooked just right, roast potatoes - marvellous. Besides 2 choices of a roast on a Sunday there is an extensive menu and a specials board. The staff are friendly and the... More

Having driven through the narrow roads on a foggy evening, we really appreciated the welcome. Our meals were delicious; we recommmend that you save a bit of room for the lemon and amaretto trifle - it is wonderful!
