Great bar tucked away on the infinitely cooler Fore St end of town (sorry bright shiny Princes Hay). Walk into a warm, welcoming subterranean feast for the senses. The cocktails are the best in town and the staff are rather ace. Oh and they've also managed to squeeze a whole theatre in there too. What else do you want? :)

Quality performance. Actor even welcomed patrons to have a chat with him afterwards at the bar. Great venue to pre and post drink. Cheap Tuesday only 5 pounds! I'll be visiting again!

I have only ever been into the bar, never ventured into the Theatre, but this place is amazing!

They have the best bands, big sofas and excellent coctails, the bar itself is very atmospheric and free from the usual weekend rowdy crowds, this is a very relaxed and beautiful place to go out. Great for girlie nights, or if you are on a date.

If you get there later you sometimes have to pay to get in, but it's usually £1.

This place is fantastic. A lovely vintage feel throughout, with stacks of board games to play while you try their delicious food and cakes in the afternoon. Coming in the evening? Try their range of unique and amazing cocktails, made by their charming bar staff. In the mood for a play? They have the most innovative performances in Exeter. You can't help but feel you're seeing future stars treading the boards.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
