“Quaint Inn”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for a friday and saturday night on a B&B basis, rooms clean and tidy and adequate for our needs. Inn staff all extremely helpful and accommodating. We only ate breakfast at the Inn but was a good full english and the bar area was obviously a popular haunt for the locals and had a pleasant atmosphere. This would not be our usual style of accommodation and once my wife got past the fact that this is a 14th century Inn and not a large chain style of hotel, we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely return. Only real down point is the lack of parking but a pay and display car park round the corner had plenty of spaces.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

We stayed at the inn for 2 nights in the summer, we really liked it! We stayed in 2 different rooms due to size of party and both rooms were lovely, really nicely decorated and comfortable. Breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. The Exeter in. Is in the middle of a small, sweet high street in a good location.

The historic feel of the inn is brilliant - really feels like stepping back in time!
The old oak construction looks superb. The owners clearly work hard to maintain the feel.

Food:
- Good quality, smartly presented in individual portions. Nice large portions. Decent Value for Money. Service OK.

Would highly recommend for the historic experience. Food is very good and worth a try.

Something a bit different, out of the ordinary. Not a 'generic pub'. Great!

A wonderful stay at this very old inn.. The owners have made the Exeter inn inviting and all of the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Rooms lovely and clean ok no wardrobe but plenty of draw space coffee etc. in room plus if you require it a tv, bathroom a lovely size.
food is very good cooked fresh to order but well worth the wait, ok no food on wed nights but the bistro next door are very good.
will defiantly be returning highly recommend

Room Tip: rooms at the back are lovely and quiet

We ate twice at the Exeter while on holiday in the area, the first occasion we did not book but they were able to accommodate us, the second time we did book. If you get the chance to book it maybe advisable. The food is typical pub grub, tasty and a good sized portion. The staff are friendly and it is reasonably priced. Just a note of caution, the second time we ate we did book but were not advised it was a grill/pizza night so it maybe best to check if you do book another meal whilst there. It was not a problem for us on the night. It was busy on both occasions and we did have a bit of a wait but the staff did advise us of this so we did not mind.

Positives - clean and tidy rooms & very comfortable although little storage space, Good evening meals and friendly locals.
Negatives - if travelling on business, breakfast from 8.30 is no good and no food on Wednesday nights. No mobile phone reception or internet.
The Bistro next door is however very good alternative and was suggested by the Pub.

Stayed for 2 nights including breakfast. Quite a quirky place and well located for Devon's attractions. Quality of food very good especially breakfast, staff very friendly real family affair. Only parking issues and lack of storage place in room prevented 5 star award. Will definitely return for a short break
