Location and contact

The Oddfellows is a stone's throw away from Exeter's main shopping centre. This is a very friendly unpretentious gastro style pub, with a sociable, down to earth atmosphere. With a fantastic lunch starting at £10 for 2 courses, but still offering some pub classics like fish & chips, but one properly! Fine Ale, in the Good Pub Guide 2014, 2015 & 2016 result! Great wines! Just take a load off and visit us!

Easily the best cocktails in Exeter, and as good as anywhere else you could find. Friendly staff who care about what they are doing and it shows. Best Old fashioned I've had anywhere by a considerable margin.

Really cool pub tucked down a side road in Exeter. Cosy and quirky, Oddfellows has a great range of local beers on draught as well as a huge selection of gins. The burger in here is hands down THE best in Exeter. Plus there’s a...More

Had the scotch egg starter which was great and the steak mains was perfect. Very busy night with a big party in the same room but we were made welcome and had good friendly service throughout the night. Would return.

The pub was really busy but staff helpful and very attentive. I had scotch egg and chutney for starters which was freshly cooked and delicious! The roast beef was lovely great freshly cooked veg and great potatoes.

I recently had a birthday dinner at Oddfellows, for 14 people. The food was excellent, the service and atmosphere great, and really easy to settle up, individually at the bar. Oddfellows is one of the best places for good gastro pub food in Exeter.

Visited previously a couple of months back on the night of their quiz and decided we should try their Sunday Roast as other friends had been and were bowled over. Needless to say we were thrilled with our choice for lunch. Visited without booking, although...More
