We ran across the Grapevine a few years ago and immediately loved the laid back atmosphere. They serve several cask ales and a nice range of wines and always a tempting snack and meal menu. We have never had a full meal but regularly have the tapas or snacks here to accompany our drinks. A really nice relaxing place to... More

An excellent selection of English and continental beers and lagers. Good food - especially Sunday Lunch. Sundays the place can be full of children unless you go towards the end of service. . . . . . this will influence some people's timings! Good BBQ and a small outside patio area.

Oh dear, it has changed...menu was very uninspiring, standard pub fare, but we went ahead and ordered anyway...and were pretty surprised when our two 'tapas'starters came out along with the main courses. Waitress blamed the barman for the way the... More

Having visited Exmouth I had explored potential evening entertainment venues and The Grapevine had been suggested by other TripAdvisor members. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed especially having read the aforementioned TripAdvisor reviews. I can only assume prior comments had been completed by 'locals'. A different/non-visitor face is certainly only not welcomed and at best they are happy to take your... More

Eating after 2pm( they stop service at 3) yes, but we both felt like we were intruding. My wife's soup was great ,but she had to ask for bread ... Normally home made but not today.... More

The food is always great (try the pulled pork ciabatta), staff are very friendly and there is a great selection of beers, lagers and ciders that you don't get in most places. Highly recommended!
