Visited here on a Saturday afternoon with some friends. We were seated in a cosy booth, the atmosphere in here is lovely, warm and friendly, just what you want on a winters day! Food was very tasty, although the fajitas were too spicy for my taste buds. Food prices are reasonable, higher then whether spoons but less then a posh... More

We have been to Chaucer's before and the food has been ok, today we visited Exeter and called in there for lunch. We were the only 2 people eating, I had slow cooked lamb and hubby had fish and chips. Well the lamb, considering it was supposed to have been slow cooked was very chewy and I struggled to cut...

We are frequent visitors to Exeter having family close by. We like Chaucers as it is a bit of a character place in a very central location. Having read some very adverse extreme reviews I am going to try and be constructive. I feel lots of people use trip advisor to have a whinge. However, It is also give the... More

We didn't enjoy, didn't complain, but won't be back - Exeter... More

I went as part of a group for the set menu and the food was terrible. £20 and I could have cooked a much nicer meal at home. The starter was okay, the main the turkey was nearly cold and potatoes hot and served on a cold plate...the dessert looked and tasted like an awful kids meal. The staff were... More

I took my parents to Exeter today for a trip to the sales. I suggested a visit to Chaucers for lunch after having been several times before with my wife. We ordered our food & I was told that there would be a half hour wait, which we didn't mind. Although it didn't look that busy at the time of... More

a large group of us went for our Xmas meal. What a great night. We eat in the booth seats at the back. The prawn pasta dish was superb. So nice to eat from a real pub menu. Debbie served us and was the great fun. New manager seems to be doing a good job. Thanks
