Went out for a lunch in the sunshine with Devon's lovely views. This place has the potential to be lovely with its beautiful scenery, easy to get to location and the lovely staff and service. However the food really let it down and I will not be coming again. We ordered two of the sandwiches that come with crisps and... More

We chose to eat in the bar rather than the restaurant because we love the log fire and cosy atmosphere, wood beams and flagstone floor. The menu isn't extensive but the food is home-cooked and tasty with generous portions. We were given a very warm welcome and made to feel at home. The only challenge is the car park which... More

I'm not one for reviews but feel compelled to do so. I quite often work in Bampton, so thought I'd give Exeter Inn a try for a meal with my wife and daughter, the staff were really nice, but the food was dire! We had salad with the starters and main, but it was only dry lettuce, nothing extra whatsoever,... More

Bar staff friendly and helpful. The meal we had was good value and service was good. The menu is the same as the previous restricted menu so still missing the... More

My husband and I were travelling to Exmoor and stopped for lunch. The service was pretty poor and although there were plenty of vegetables the meat portions were wanting. Beer and wine ok and would visit again because it is a convenient stopover for lunch

There was 9 of us for supper unfortunately 2 of the meals were disappointing for their recipients. Plenty of vegetables and the Chilean Merlot is good!
