This is quite a large restaurant right in the centre - below street level. Decor was inviting and we received a warm welcome from our waiter (he appeared to be the only person working front of house!). It was a quiet Monday lunchtime and so not very busy. Menu is quite extensive with a few interesting options and portions were... More

Looked for somewhere to eat and came across Chaucer. Very nice place, very friendly staff and good atmosphere. Had to wait a while for our food but we did enjoy once it arrived. Drinks were good prices. And cocktails were good value, would definitely visit again

We had visited before and we were disappointed then but whilst in Exeter we decided to have another look to see if it had improved. Sevice was excellent although it was very quite nothing like before when it was always full. We both had the lamb. Mashed potatoe was to be honed rubbish, lamb was ok but a little fatty.... More

We recently visited Exeter as a treat for our granddaughter (age 13) and looked for somewhere for lunch. This established looked impressive in the old building and was very convenient being on the high street. After traversing the very steep staircase we found ourselves in a large dining area where the nicest tables were in alcoves. Although not busy the... More

Popped in on the off chance they had a table and they did! Large party before us and you could see they were short staff, so was a little concerned especially with reading the reviews on here! Have to say food was perfect. Guy who served us - Rob was amazing. Didn't stop. Friendly, happy chap who certainly deserves some... More

Waited over an hour for our food to arrive to be disappointed by what we were faced with. I ordered the lasagne which was a tiny portion, ordered chips which I was told would be extra as it already came with salad so I was happy to pay the extra but expected the salad to be a reasonable size seeing...

We had a look through the shops and couldn't decide where to eat and then we came to Chaucers. The menu outside looked to have a good variety and was reasonably priced so we ventured in. We were told to choose a table and were given menus. A young guy came over to take our drinks order. We decided on... More

My friend and I decided to have our lunch in Chaucers today whilst shopping in Exeter. The Chillie con carne was absolutely horrible. It smelt, and was dry and inedible. When we complained and asked if it was fresh (as advertised) she said no it was yesterdays and it was the last of the batch!!!! She said she would reduce... More
