Description: The Oddfellows is a stone's throw away from Exeter's main shopping centre. This is a very friendly unpretentious gastro style pub, with a sociable, down to earth atmosphere. With a fantastic lunch starting at £10 for 2 courses, but still offering some pub classics like fish & chips, but one properly! Fine Ale, in the Good Pub Guide 2014 & 2015, awaiting 2016 result! Great wines! Just take a load off and visit us!

I've been to the Oddfellows half a dozen times now. The service is always excellent. Food is of a very high standard. The menu is varied, though in all fairness not too extensive. On saying that I always seem to have something different. They do a local wine from the Dart Valley ..... got to say it's one of my favourites.

“Best Chocolate Brownie EVER!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Had a meal here last week with work colleagues and the food was exceptional. There is a really good atmosphere and the staff were excellent. I had the duck for main course and it was cooked perfectly, and the chocolate brownie was the best I've ever had! A good night all round and I would definitely return.

“Fantastic atmosphere, food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Tonight I took some work colleagues and Directors of my business out for a meal and drinks at The Oddfellows. The service was second to none, the food was perfect (thanks to the chefs) and the entertainment and atmosphere was spot on. I would highly recommend this venue.

“Probably the best bar in Devon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The Oddfellows just does everything so well whether it's a romantic cocktail, fantastic food or just a drink with friends. The selection of wine and beers is great the Proper Job is always in top condition and the Korev Cornish larger is a real treat. The wine selection ranges from good value house wine to some quite bespoke robust reds all great. The menu has something for everyone steak and wedges are a quick lunch favourite or ask the chef, we were recommended local cod stakes done in a beer batter absolutely fantastic. The staff are relaxed and friendly which all adds to the chilled out ambience. The Speakeasy Cocktail Lounge upstairs is the idea place for a romantic liaison, great selection of drinks made with a bit of flare and passion.
The Oddfellows is a absolute gem and worth seeking out.

“Cocktails are nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Friendly bar with a good atmosphere, especially at Christmas. Often go there on a work do. Lots of standing up until late, but a fun place.
