Best pub food in Exmouth!

The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the Grapevine is a really pleasant place to spend an evening. Their food is all freshly cooked, generous portions and the quality is quite a step up from your average 'pub' food.

When I am in Exmouth, this to me is "the only go-to Pub". Why, simples, the beer is from 100% Micro Breweries, exactly who I prefer to patronise. Plenty of options available and I haven't had a bad pint yet. Decent background music too - the bar/waiting staff are mainly ex-Students and very mature ones too. Now the food, this... More

A good selection of real ales and craft beers. The menu choice was limited but looked good. The pub is hosting a real ale festival later in the month.

Firstly, I have to state that my partner and I have previously enjoyed many visits to this lovely pub - he enjoys the fine ales, we have eaten many times here and frequently enjoy the live music with some great bands. I would consider myself to be a 'regular', often coming along with friends/colleagues. However, on the last two occasions... More

I organised a meal at the Grapevine for my birthday, the choices on the menus were so limited I ended up ordering something I really didn't want. When it came it was ok nothing special which as it was my birthday I felt really disappointed. Most of the party ended up just making do with what was on offer which... More

Visited on a Friday night and as well as the excellent range of real ales and foreign bottled beers we caught a superb 9 piece jazz/blues band who made a great wall of sound. Thoroughly enjoyable time, we didn't eat but plenty were and the food looked good. Packed house but good bar staff and service.

Excellent food, wide variety of beers, good atmosphere and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. We went to the restaurant as part of our coast path walk and it is one of the best we have encountered along the way

Went for Subday lunch as a group of 6. The place was nearly empty but we waited a long time for our food. The crab sandwiches which were advertised as "fresh locally caught crab" had less than a teaspoon of crab meat( which I do not think was fresh crab) on them, when we complained they bought out 2 pots...

the Grapevine is my local pub so my view would seem biased. But yesterday I introduced it to a colleague who was in Exmouth for business and he was certainly impressed with the experience. What a lovely wholesome tasty food, we had burgers and plenty of ales recommended by the enthusiastic landlord all within a context of a great atmosphere... More
