I spent two nights at the excellent Exeter Inn for a work assignment. I ended up eating most all my meals in their Epoch Restaurant. The food was good and the service outstanding. Bonnie was my server two of the meals and she was friendly and professional with an outstanding memory. I really returned the second time for her. Adam... More

Good food, pleasant staff, pretty setting. There were plenty of choices, and we enjoyed eating on the patio with the garden setting.

Enjoyed my breakfast of corned beef hash with Vermont cheddar, the best I have had in a very long time. Overall my family enjoyed the food and the experience.

Some family members and I ate at the Epoch restaurant and bar twice over a long weekend when we were in town for a family wedding. We were staying at the Exeter Inn so it was very convenient to eat at the Epoch downstairs. The servers and bartenders we interacted with were very welcoming and friendly. We found the service...

Hi, I took my son and daughter-in-law here last Sunday to celebrate their anniversary. Lovely atmosphere, etc. The silverware was not covered or moved to the left.' The waitress set the germy menu directly on my silverware. If i'd been alone i would have asked for new silverware but didn't want to make an awkward situation for them. I used... More

We were delighted dining at Epoch with the wide variety of menu choices that my granddaughters loved which included crispy fried chicken, mini burgers and Parmesan frites....yummmy, while I loved the smoked tomato risotto. It was all so good we went back for breakfast! We had excellent food and excellent service.

Locals complain Exeter has no place to drop in for a simple meal. That's what makes this a hidden gem. Great for a burger or it's too hot to cook night. Grab a bite a the bar you never know who you might meet.

I always take friends here because the food and atmosphere are great! I have had many meals on the menu and they are all delicious but I always return to the Epoch burger because it's amazing! Haddock sandwich is also a favorite! Oh and did I mention the cocktails? The cocktail menu changes seasonally and they always have amazing new... More
