We went for Sunday Lunch which was very good lovely surroundings and excellent food. The roast beef was just perfect pink but not sliced too thin and plenty of vegetables. The menu had a good choice for Sunday lunch at £24.95 for three courses. The wine list had plenty to offer as well. We will definitely go back and try... More

The food was very good, Service was poor and the menegar had a bad attitude, Women's was really rude. The staff were standing around looking bored on the Friday evening (6th of October) we were unfortunate enough to go there. Extremely unwelcoming staff, Outfit should be more elgant!!!!!

As we really appreciate customer feedback, we weren't made aware of your experience on your visit, but not sure which evening you are referring to as Friday night was the 7th October with no female staff present. If you would like to contact us personally to discuss this matter further please don't hesitate to give us a ring on 01572... More

Went tot he marquess last saturday night, amazing food, very helpful staff to my husbands requirements. Really great ingredients, simple but fantastic combinations, they definitely know what they are doing. How people can put negative reviews when they didnt event stay to eat. You get what you pay for, and this is quality.

We were staying at the hotel for a wedding. As a family we had booked 3 separate rooms in the hotel for a total of 7 nights. As a favour we asked if the Hotel woundn't mind organising a brunch for the wedding party the day of the wedding, which they agreed to. We were charged in the region of... More

I couldn't fault the attentiveness of the waiter, but the food was very expensive. £18.50 for the lamb dish, then vegetables had to be added at £2.75. It as well cooked, but not particularly well-presented, rather clumsy. The red-mullet main was a tiny piece of fish laid on a bed of 'salad.' Starters & desserts steeply priced also. The restaurant... More

Well done to all at the Marquess especially Gill (or Jill) and Brian for the amazing wedding reception. Food and accommodation was first class and the whole wedding party had a fantastic time. Highly recommend the Marquess of Exeter.

Went once with the family. Having been given a menu to peruse in the bar area, we noticed how very expensive the limited menu was. The restaurant was quiet and lacked atmosphere. We left without ordering. Have since returned. We were the only ones in the restaurant and with no background music I felt uncomfortable and like I has to... More

We stopped off for sunday lunch and had a flawless roast dinner each. Beef cooked to perfection, huge yorkshire puddings and fresh local veg. The only down side was that we sat a little out of the way in the bar area and felt a little forgotten, at one point we had to go up to the bar and ask... More

Food was nice but took over 1 hour from ordering to eating, quite pricey for what you get. Drinks are reasonable price. Staff are slow at serving but friendly.
