Every time I’ve been here it never disappoints. Great menu and great, friendly service. The steak sandwich is an absolute must - washed down with a pint of Dark Drake.

OK - I didn’t think my meal rated as 5 star, but my two companions did, so I think I would be mean to mark the Exeter down. They had Chana Masala and Hommity Pie, and thought they were great - I have to agree...More
