Went here for lunch with some friends. The food was amazing and of good value reflected on the price we paid. We went to the bar to order and ordered a pitcher and it seemed like this was a trouble for the person on the bar as she huffed and shrugged and then asked her colleague for help. If you... More

Went in yesterday to find the manager and another member of staff were clearly on some sort of drugs. Witnessed a load of glasses being smashed and glass being kicked under the bar. Had my food spilt all over me whilst being brought out to me. The place was incredibly messy too. Absolutely disgusting behaviour, won't be returning.

Was waiting for a bus in Exeter after taking the train in from London. Had plenty of time to kill and walked up and down looking for a good spot for lunch. The Inn had an amazing deal on Fish and Chips with a beer. They were some of the best I've had in the world. Exactly what I could've... More

Been here a few times and always had a nice meal. Found it hard to feel its restaurant like as it's always full of people drinking and loud behaviour which being where it is and what it is you would expect. Not somewhere a quiet meal is what your going to get. Alway busy and a long wait so staff... More

Called in for brekkie for 4 people. Everything was cooked well, hot and no complaints at all. Quick service, clean tables and polite staff.
