Worth a little drive out of Exeter. Do a lot of things right. Eaten here several times and have had a great time. It's not cheap but I think it's worth it. Would eat here a lot more but the wife's not a foodie!

Food okay potatoes were like yesterdays job to cut them, not because they were crispy but had been hanging around. But the pudding was the best pannacotta I have ever had !! So not all doom and gloom.But give it a try staff very good, food was served quickly.

We stopped at Exeter overnight and picked The Lazy Toad to eat at from Tripadvisor recommendations. The pub/restaurant is about as good as it could be. Ample parking, seating outside and an attractive menu. Also the pub had excellent beers and wines. We were interested to discover that there are 5 double en suite rooms as well (two being in... More

I was planning our wedding, last year, and read the great reviews for this pub here on Tripadvisor. We then visited the pub, to view the rooms and get a feel of what the pub was like for ourselves. The owners were very friendly and helpful, showing us all the rooms and explaining about the food and the small-holding that... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here (8.8.14) and our first visit will not be our last! The restaurant/pub is very pretty from the outside and has lovely courtyard style outside dining areas. Inside the decor is fresh and modern, but maintains a bit of old-world charm too! The menu is seasonal and it shows and there is plenty... More

We were recommended to visit this pub on a day out in exeter during our holiday and so glad we went. Pub itself is a very attractive country inn with a cobbled courtyard and pretty garden in a lovely village. Food is excellent and well presented and service is polite and attentive. Really hope we can revisit in future

My husband and I walked from Stoke Canon, with our dog Dilly. We were made to feel welcome, as was Dilly. Our food was prompt and very tasty and good value for money. Will happily go again.

We've dined here quite a number of times over the past few years so were surprised and disappointed last night at receiving such awful food in this delightful restaurant. We had noticed over the past twelve months that the menu choices were becoming increasingly odd. My wife and I found it very hard to select a starter and main course... More

It's not often that I write a review but I really couldn't resist this time for all the right reasons. Having decided to take a drive on Sunday and find somewhere for lunch, we stumbled across The Lazy Toad Inn. It instantly looked inviting with its wonderful Mediterranean feel exterior design and wonderful gardens. The welcome was warm and asking... More
