Lovely choice of food and very tasty when it arrived, nice atmosphere, cosy. They helpfully let me store my bike in their outhouse whilst I ate.

Called in for lunch on a South-North road trip. Very quiet but the food was outstanding. The place could use a little redecorating but otherwise Fantastic.

Dear Miss Simran, we can not forcibly move customers from their seating. We agree, it's not ideal when a lone customer occupies a large table. Invariably when asked if they can be re-located to a smaller table 99 times out of 100 they are more...More

I visited the Exeter for an annual Christmas get together with some friends. The beer here is superb and a great range of ales on offer. The downside is the venue is a little cramped at times and the bar can prove to be a...More

We went here for drinks and a light meal. We opted for the chip buckets with meat and a sharing platter. Very good at reasonable prices. Seating is a bit crammed in but comfortable. A real cider would be nice but the Thatchers is acceptable.

Great atmosphere. Warm glowing fire and candles add to the ambience. A great place with plenty of character. Food was very well presented.

Hi. Parking is by way of meters immediately outside but free after 6 pm. There is also free parking in the nearby area but you need to drive around a little to find some. I have never had a problem with parking in this part... More
