I've passed this restaurant for the past 30 years and never once ventured in, until a friend of mine recommended the Exeter Arms. I visited with a new customer to my business last night, not knowing what to expect and I have to say it was tremendous. Great food, wonderful service, and a warm friendly welcome. You won't be disappointed,... More

I was staying at the Exeter arms whilst working away. It's a lovely old country pub with a cozy feel to it. I had fish and chips £13.50 and a bottle of coke. The fish and chips was very nice and came with thick home cooked chips with it and some thick bread. I also had the breakfast here which... More

We were traveling from Scotland and wanted a pub lunch just off the A1. This pub is excellent. The food was great, a real gastro experience ! The service and decor were exceptional too. Highly recommend.

We visited as a work party, excellent selection of food and wine and service was top quality, but just not enough staff to cover

I only frequent this establishment a couple of times per year, however I have always enjoyed my dining experiences. This inn has an "olde worlde" atmosphere, with friendly and courteous staff.

I visited here with my family. Grandparents, grandchildren etc. The service was great and friendly. I had high hopes that the food would also be of the same standard but we were disappointed. We ordered the Sunday Roast which came out Luke warm but edible. 2 of us ordered beef, this was very tough and fatty and no steak knives... More

Had a meal there last night. Black sheep real ale is a great start. Starter was very good and the steak excellent. The chef enjoyed cooking a rare to blue steak and was interested to know my thoughts on it. It's rare to find a chef that really knows how to cook a steak properly and he does. The service... More

A great improvement since the last time we visited. Menu options were good and plenty of options for gluten free. Waiting staff interested in their jobs but some looked in experienced. They prepared an excellent fruit salad for dessert although is wasnt on the menu. Surprising there was only about 4 tables with guests for the whole evening. Could have... More
