My husband and i live in plymouth and we come up to exeter for shopping trips and we also make this resturant our regular place for lunch. We usually manage to get a little booth with the fairy lights around which we really love. I usually have the lamb and mint pie as its one of the best pies ever... More

Firstly I ordered a Chilli Lasagne from the specials board but when it came out it was just an ordinary Chilli, not too much of a problem as I didn't realise how much I was craving a chilli. It was a lovely homemade Chilli with a handful of nacho's to dip into it. We also ordered the Honey Glazed Ribs... More

We visit Exeter on a regular basis and Chaucers is our usual lunch venue. The food is always good and sensibly-priced. The service is always excellent. And the staff are always cheerful. Thoroughly recommended. On our last visit - September the 1st 2014 - we were served by Coral, who was particularly helpful and cheerful.

Visited Chaucers again with my partner a couple of weekends ago, and ordered our usual favourites. Though I did have to wait roughly five minutes at the bar to order drinks, Steph came across and apologised, and happily took the order. Bonus that we had a discount card, saving us a total of approximately £4 for the meal. The food... More

Stacey and Kasia know about real customer service. They looked after us as if we were special. This is so rare to find these days where English customer service has gone very American where you can tell it is not them speaking and not sincere. Good selection of food and specials. Beer and wine excellent quality and well kept. Well... More

Such a shame. A lovely setting, lovely bar, loads of food choices. However, the portions of food were ridiculously big - far too big. The service at the two points of ordering was dreadful. You have to go over to the bar on one side of the place to order drinks from a rude Barman, then over to the till... More
