We were delighted dining at Epoch with the wide variety of menu choices that my granddaughters loved which included crispy fried chicken, mini burgers and Parmesan frites....yummmy, while I loved the smoked tomato risotto. It was all so good we went back for breakfast! We had excellent food and excellent service.

Upscale dining, very pleasant atmosphere, friendly & knowledgable staff. Food was excellent & nice presentation. Very old building, beautifully restored in a historical quaint town. Loved it!

Locals complain Exeter has no place to drop in for a simple meal. That's what makes this a hidden gem. Great for a burger or it's too hot to cook night. Grab a bite a the bar you never know who you might meet.

I always take friends here because the food and atmosphere are great! I have had many meals on the menu and they are all delicious but I always return to the Epoch burger because it's amazing! Haddock sandwich is also a favorite! Oh and did I mention the cocktails? The cocktail menu changes seasonally and they always have amazing new... More

We've enjoyed several "special occasion" dinners with our daughters when they visit from out of state (Thanksgiving, Easter, etc.) These have always been buffet, which is more expensive, but well worth it. Service and food quality have always been superb.

Although I have lived in the area for years, I never considered the Epoch at The Exeter Inn to be an affordable and comfortable option for us on our date nights out, but I was so mistaken! It is cozy with a beautiful bar, not snobbish in the least. As a matter of fact I went to get a haddock... More

Epoch is a very intimate, cozy, lively bistro with brick, red tones, and dark wood accents. The food is both classic and regional fare, and the service is friendly and efficient. A quaint and chatty bar area is attached at the front of the restaurant. The chef provides imaginative starters, appetizers and entrees that are nicely plated. A well rounded... More
