We've eaten here for a while now quite regularly and have loved the grapevine, great music, fantastic food and helpful bar staff. Unfortunately it's not what it used to be, no friendly faces remain. They seem to have been replaced with just faces and the food has taken, let's say..... a turn for the worst. A terrible wait, poorly seasoned... More

I love the Grapevine for its versatility. You can be dancing around to a great band in the packed bar on a Friday night then sitting down to a quiet chilled Sunday roast on a...Sunday! The bar staff are always friendly and smiling. The food is always up to scratch and they offer a good variety. Great pub.

We booked our work Christmas lunch here, based on a previous lunch I had enjoyed. Everyone loved their food, the service was excellent and easy to pay seperately at the end, the atmosphere was quiet but this did not affect our meal.

Olly the owner keeps banning customers that are having fun and paying for the privilege. I have just just been thrown out for for no good reason apart from him thinking that that I was shouting in in the the bar last weekend. I was in spain last weekend. He is an idiot. He has thrown out loads of good... More

My wife and I called into The Grapevine a couple of times while in Exmouth for a short break. Our first visit was on a cold and dreary Monday evening for a pre-dinner drink and we liked the feel of the place, even though we didn't stay for the weekly quiz! This is a no frills kind of place, with... More

Despite a terrible first visit I was willing to give this pub a second chance. All it did was to confirm my my previous experience that if your face is not recognised, you are simply not welcome but they are still content on taking your money followed by a fond goodbye and good riddance. Management rude and exceptionally unwelcoming.

We went here for a family dinner. We have a variety of ages and meal/evening expectations in our extended family. Ages ranging from 3yo to 75yo. This occasion was a 70th birthday celebration. Beer was good. Wine was good. Food was good. Not fine dining, but good pub grub.

Local pub with good range of drinks and food. When I visited there were several real ales and a variety of regular and specials on the food menu. Staff were friendly and the clientele mixed. Good value and well worth a visit.
