Interesting Pub in a beautiful setting

We were actually lost when we called into this pub on the road into Bampton! We decided to sit outside and have a glass of beer and some lunch before trying to find out exactly where we were? It is a Camra pub and they had a good choice of well kept real ales and have Guest Beers as well... read more

We visited the Exeter Inn having read a selection good reviews on trip advisor. To say we were rather disappointed is an understatement! On arrival we met with two disgruntled guests how had left their food... Worrying! We sat down and were given three menus to share between eight of us. Having ordered we then waited TWO HOURS for our... More

We were a group of about 15 and were looked after beautifully. There is a good varied menu and everyone was happy with their meal - very good value, and better than expected going on price alone.

We visited the Exeter Inn for the second time last evening. The welcome was warm, staff friendly and attentive. We sat by the log fire and enjoyed beautifully presented, well cooked, very testy food that was very reasonably priced. Very good choice of food and wines. This will not be our last visit.

Despite living only 3 miles away hadn't visited until this week. Saw an advert for lunchtime Carvery and it was definitely worth the visit. Locally sourced meat, fresh veg and yorkshire puddings were amazing. Will definitely be going back

Food are average. Duck pate is good n smooth. Fried Prawns starter is good m flavourful. Unfortunately the soup of the day is blunt and tasteless. Grill steak is dry n... More

I went for a quick lunch with the girls and I have to say it was the perfect stop. It's not exceptional food and they would suggest it is but that's reflected in the price. It's cheap, simple English menu with helpful staff. They have lots of local ales and a good choice of other beverages. The Irish coffees weren't... More
