We called into this delightful place on a cold, rainy, blustery day and it was like stepping into a lovely escape...

The atmosphere, the view, the decorations, the food, the service, the wonderful wine-by-the-glass list...

Just perfect!

After originally being quite taken with this place, something has definitely gone astray. The last 2 visits have left us disappointed. Food not up to scratch and a little on the expensive side for what you get.

We had a very good meal which was well presented. The staff were extremely polite, friendly and welcoming. The pub is situated right on the quay with many tables outside. Due to the time of year and inclement weather we sat inside. We have no hesitation in recommending the pub.

Friday night and the need for a good meal in a good pub/restaurant with great service and a great atmosphere. Where else but the Lighter.
There are many good pubs and restaurants in the Exeter area and the Lighter is one of them. The menu is first class as is the varied, quality and reasonably priced items on it.
If I had one point to raise it would be that on a busy night the Lighter can be a tad on the noisy side but that is to be expected when so many people visit.

The Lighter Inn suffers from good location disease - it has a lovely spot just by the waterfront in Topsham and so it doesn't have to try in order to be full. And it certainly doesn't try very hard. The menu is huge but I have yet to eat a dish on it that's worth the money it costs. The service is friendly, but often slow. Next time I'm going to just take a picnic even in February!
