“Average pub fare”
Reviewed January 12, 2011

I have been in the Exeter Inn fairly regularly over the past few years and found the ale to be good and the food satisfactory. The pub is in line with Modbury prices (think £3 - £3.10 for a pint of ale before the VAT rise), but is usualy busy on weekend evenings.

The pizzas served are OK, maybe slightly expensive, I wouldn't say they were any better than that, it'd probably be a better idea to stick to the beer and grab something from the Chinese or the White Hart if you were after food.

Service is usually prompt and friendly so no complaints there.

“heart of modbury!!”
Reviewed January 14, 2009

absoloutely beautiful pub in a lovely village location enjoyed it thoroughly, as for the bad review in this site where they had bad service we were staying there on the night in question these four chaps were very obnoxious and rude and drunk, the landlord had the right to ask them to leave and we were greatful for this, the staff at the 'X' as they call the pub locally are extremely helpful and kind and very friendly and the landlady is a lovely lady who has done wonders with the place since taking over and is very highly spoken off thankyou for such a memorable holiday fantastic meal and great bar service we will most definately be back in summer 09' thankyou

We arrived in Modbury looking forward to a nice meal in a traditional pub. One of our party was vegetarian and we discussed our options whilst ordering a pint of real ale. Our first choice was off, the second arrived cloudy and undrinkable. The landlord, or someone who appeared to be the landlord, then arrived having listened and watched us expresing surprise at the lack of even one vegetarian option on the pubs security camera's (!) and told us that if we didn't like the menu then we could leave.
In twenty-five years of drinking in pubs around the world, I had never been spoken to in this way. Perhaps I've been lucky.
So we left and had a lovely meal elsewhere.
A dreadful experience.
