We'd walked past the Beacon Vaults almost every day for nearly 10 months and eventually we figured we should really try it! We booked a table 2 days before we wanted to eat and had a very friendly reception. The same was true when we arrived on the Saturday. The dining area isn't very large but all the tables are...

We visited here for dinner due to the reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. My husband had the pork belly and I had the chicken escalope special, both were delicious. I would recommend this to anyone .

We were so thrilled with our visit to this restaurant! We first spotted it when we were having a trip on the local train that runs around the streets of Exmouth and it looked like a very attract venue. Luckily, and to our great amazement, my brother had already booked a table there for the four of us to have... More

My experience at this restaurant was not a happy one. The barman was cordial. However, the hostess/waitress was less than friendly, appeared harassed and did not give service that is normally expected in a restaurant. Left me feeling let down. Wouldn't want to be treated like that again, especially when I am paying for it. Could not recommend this restaurant.... More

Been a handful of times now, and the food is always spot on, been to many restaurants where after a repeat visit, the standard drops, but not here. Everytime myself and my parnter have come the dishes have been tasty, portions ample and from starters to dessert the food is great.

4 of us popped in on spec. Every body was very friendly and welcoming so that after waiting for 15 minutes they found us a table even though a large birthday party group had just arrived. Our food was served by the chef Andy and he, or his mother - he got the recipe from her are clearly geniuses. His... More

Staying in Exmouth last week I had the pleasure of visiting The Beacon Vaults twice. The first was for a private function where we were treated to a vast amount of delicious food, some even cooked at the table by the one and only chef Andy. The second time we returned for Sunday lunch which again was amazing. We were... More

Delicious looking menu with good variety. I chose the mackerel and oh boy what a great looking dish arrived! Full of little flavour surprises, colourful with just cooked veg.... More

Hi Everyone, Welcome to The Beacon Vaults! We are a pub restaurant between the town centre and the beach. In our Restaurant we offer a varied menu, mostly based around good Homemade English food. Our Restaurant has seats 28 and our Bar area seats around 35 people plus 4 high back chairs around the bar, and of course standing room. We have a good range of beers, lagers, wines, soft drinks and a choice of real ales.We play a wide range of music dvds from Adele to Motown, Micheal Buble to complications. We have free wi-fi and packs of cards, connect 4, newspapers and magazines in the bar area.
