Nice but....

Great ambience, but slightly let down by the choice of lagers available and the presence on karaoke on Saturday nights. But highly recommended for its grub.

Proper pub food, not pretentious, but freshly made to order and absolutely delicious. A refreshing place to find in an area where there are too many 'gastro pubs". Only downside was customers smoking just outside the open door meaning the smoke wafted in - perhaps they could be encouraged to move away from the door (or not smoke at all!).

We visited just for a couple of pints. It's a really nice quiet pub situated down a side street. Could be easily missed. We didn't eat, but the prices were excellent. And the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked very good. My only complaint is I feel the beer is expensive. A beer we'd purchased in Exmouth... More

We only generally come to this pub for a coffee and it is much more open, bright and comfortable than its competitor in the town. It is also a good place to come if the weather is not too good and the Longboat Café is closed. In good weather the downside is that it lacks a beer garden. The coffee... More

Friday night so locals starting the weekend gave the place a buzz and plenty of people coming and going. Food exactly what you'd expect pub grub and generous portions.

Friendlyish but not overly welcoming and helpful. Food acceptable, nothing to write home about. Real ales in good condition. I suspect eating at the takeaway chippie opposite would be better.

The staff were polite and welcoming,I had the Sunday roast which was good but lacked seasoning so not much flavour, my husband had chilli which he said was ok, and we did seem to be waiting rather a long time for our food,as we were only visiting I don't think we will return.

Straightforward pub grub with friendly trusting staff/service. Two floors so plenty of space to drink or dine.

Very nice jacket potatoes and steak. Enjoyed the ales and cider. Traditional pub but very light and airy, so great for daytime visit. Extra seats upstairs overlooking street.
