Wonderful food served in a very relaxed but professional. Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this quaint pub. Great attention to detail both regarding decor and service.

“Fantastic Sunday Lunch!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We booked The Lazy Toad for a Sunday lunch as we had some family visiting.
We had never eaten here before however it came highly recommended by friends and colleagues.
The menu uses local ingredients from across Devon and Cornwall or grown onsite, which is accompanied by locally produced drinks at the bar.
All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our main meals, possibly the best meal I have eaten locally in a long time.
After letting our main courses settle a little, we spoke to the staff and moved to the gardens as it was such a lovely day and ordered desserts which were delicious!
The staff were really knowledgeable about the menu and were really helpful and made suggestions from the menu.
The pub has a really nice atmosphere and is in a beautiful location in Devon which we took full advantage of after our meals and went for a lovely walk by the river in the sun.
I would highly recommend The Lazy Toad!

“Excellent Food, Drink and Service”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Enjoyed a very pleasant evening here with my wife on Saturday 20 April. The meals were made with locally sourced ingredients (Devon and Cornwall) and were complemented by beers from the two counties. The service was very good on the whole, and our waiter gave us useful advice on areas around Exeter in which to consider buying a house (one of the purposes of our trip). Will definitely return, most likely staying the night in the one of Lazy Toad's rooms as well.

“Wonderful Food - Great Service”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We visited for Sunday lunch and I can honestly say it was the best I have had in the Exeter area. Fantastic beef. All locally sourced and very well prepared. Truly special place.
The service was fantastic, great wine recommendations and all unobtrusive but friendly. Very welcoming landlord and staff made for a great Sunday afternoon.
We will all return very soon.

“Fantastic food, great staff”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stopped here for a meal whilst on a short break in Devon. The staff were very helpful ( I only rang to book a table 50 mins prior to arriving ) ringing me back to confirm my booking and also taking note that one of our party needed a gluten free menu.The staff were lovely and chatty, providing a separate gluten free menu as needed. The food was excellent, the quality superb, with skillful presentation. We would highly recommend the Lazy Toad and will definitely return here on our next visit.
