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

Staying overnight in the area our B&B host suggested this pub as a good place to eat. The menu was not completely typical pub style but quite varied with reasonable prices. The food was tasty and hot, the staff friendly & polite. We would happily recommend this, based on our single visit. Unfortunately we live too far away to make... More

I have been going to the Exeter Inn for 15 years , Never again. Sat at the bar and ordered some chips , it was 8.45 pm, I only wanted a snack, the chips were vile . They seemed to have been blanched, then fried , but there was still a raw bite to them. Asked for some salt &... More

Having been a regular of the Exeter Inn for many years this is now the last time that we will be visiting there. Having changed hands again recently, the time has now passed to put our awful experience down to "settling in" or 'Getting the hang of things". We have tried the pub 3 times since the new owners and... 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
