“always a treat to eat here”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Try and eat here when we come to Exeter. A really cozy warm feel to the place. Lovely staff. Huge portions especially the sharing platters (enough for 3) Quite expensive but remember it is a city centre location. It does get busy so i would say get there early to get a seat.

“Deep fried with sauce!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

I should of known better .
It gives the feeling of a theme type pub/ restaurant & it is .
The food portions are very big and generous .
If your idea of good food is deep fried , covered in sauce then this is the place for you .
Staff were very friendly and helpful it's just a shame that the food left me feeling unhealthy .

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Food was excellent and staff was very attentive. Portions are good size and ingredients are of high quality. The menu offers a huge choice so there's something for everyone's taste. Try the "Sharing sundae" - it's almost too good to share. Definitely will go again next time I'm in Exeter.

“Looks posh from the outside”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This place is average on the inside but is ok. I had the most amazing Jacket potato, Stilton, walnut and cranberry. The portion was large and very very tasty, they didn't skimp on the stilton. My husband had the duck in a berry sauce, I felt sorry for him when it turned up and guilty for enjoying my jacket potato so much. His duck didn't look appealing and he said it was bland, the portion of his whole dish was poor, just a few small amounts of veg and no potatoes.. I did give him some of my food at the end because mine was large and his was so bad.
