I love coming here because i can be guaranteed Excellent quality food, top changing menu including snacks starters main meals Deserts and quick food to suit everyone excellent range of real ale, excellent presentation, good service reasonable pricing the place itself you can pass in an instant and after youve parked (Derby city council do not do anybody, traders or visitors any favours with the parking costs Richardheads they are )
in you go i would recommend you reserve a table to eat between 6-8 Don't expect a new contemporary restaurant cause it aint but it is comfortable has ambience and atmosphere with the decor candles and oozes history as a Derby Public house also being busy with people enjoying food drink and friends helps
all the food was good that we ordered (we all have a taste of each others) but the bucket of chips are good and the most exquisite stilton starter i have ever tasted wish id chosen that
Iam like to try all sorts but when i see calves liver on the menu i choose it every time
the food was served promptly as we requested we like to order starters eat them drink talk and then order main course this wasn't a problem service with a smile very attentive professional
as it should be
theres loads of menus for snacks main deserts quick food some superior beefburger combinations as well

Visited the Exeter Arms last night for the first time, and will defiantly be making many more return visits. The food was the best meal we have had in a while, the fish and chips were delicious, as we're all the the mains our party of four had. A mix up with the order which was entirely our fault resulted in a extra meal being made which they gave us free of charge!! What a nice gesture.
Real ale pub which is obviously very popular. Nice cosy atmosphere, friendly staff and reasonably priced. Not your chain food pub grub at all. Would highly recommend . Outside seating area was lovely with blankets provided for chilly evenings.

Visited this lovely venue last week, the food was well presented and the atmosphere was spot on! Unsure about the decor but the staff were very friendly - will definitely be back

This pub is great. Went with my wife for lunch and we both thought it was great. The food was very nice and the portions were generous too.

It is easy to miss as you drive past the pub. I've driven past it for ages and not thought to go in, but after seeing the reviews it has had on here we tried it. It lives up the reviews about great food.

We will be visiting again for lunch and dinner.

It is also a dog friendly pub. Whilst we ate there 2 dogs came in with people, i asked about bringing my own dogs and the staff said it would be fine.

Visited as a group of nine. They had set us up in the snug which was perfect. We had a selection of starters, all of which were generous and tasty. The mains were also excellent. The service was also a real highlight - friendly and accommodating. Whilst the pub doesn't look much from the outside I would strongly recommend.
