Only stopped for a quick drink. Expensive prices for the area, more like London pricing. Nice interior and friendly staff.

Came with friends a few weeks ago for roast. Absolutely gorgeous. We returned the following Friday to try their pizzas..they were truly wonderful. I am obsessed with anything truffle (and pizza - ha!) so was not disappointed with their delicious, truffle pizza!

We have passed this pub on numerous occasions and never thought to call in. What a terrible mistake on our part. Paul and Nataliya proved to be the most entertaining of hosts.

This little pub is a typical old fashioned pub inside but the food is excellent. It's a hidden gem in Exeter and definitely worth a visit for the food. It was my second visit so have eaten off the full menu and the light bite lunchtime menu. Both experiences were proper home cooked food at very reasonable prices. All people... More

Spent around 30 minutes at the pub while waiting for my car to get ready at the car wash across the street. Really nice atmosphere but the prices are a little bit to hight and also not very clean. Think twice to go back again.

Went to this pub based of recent reviews, unfortunately our experience was poor. Ok some reasonable beers on offer but the food was average at best. We both had fish and chips but the batter was very greasy and chips were simple frozen ones served with frozen peas. The venue was very busy and noisy but understand that it's children... More
