Food was nice if a bit expensive for what you get. Service shockingly bad, we had just ordered food when a member of staff came over and rudely asked us when we would be leaving so he could re-use the table.The restaurant wasn't even that busy with some empty tables available.Was it not the fact we were drinking our drinks...

Four of us went here for a bite to eat before going down to the Pavillion for a show. Staff were courteous, with a bit of banter but without being in your face and were able to answer all the questions we had about the various items on the menu. Food arrived in a timely fashion and was of a... More

I have come to spoken for brunch many times and it is always fantastic. The avocado salsa on toast is amazing, as are the pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup. Spoken is THE place in Exmouth for Gin and Tonics. Such a wide selection, some unusual fruity ones, some locally made. All expertly mixed with lovely garnishes and the... More

Was warmly welcomed and shown to my table. The place looks really cool and has the biggest spirit collection in Exmouth. The waitress was happy and polite and gave us as much time as we needed to choose our food. I ordered Calamari Rings which were absolutely huge and unfortunately made me too full so I didn't manage to eat... More

Probably my favourite place to eat in Exmouth. Anything you order is so tasty and can tell is made to order and with love. Nothing is too much to ask, the staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is great. The music is a little loud at times and you can't really hold much of a conversation but that can... More

This place could very well be different at the weekends, but was quite empty for an early Friday evening. Beer selection isn't all that, but the spirits on offer is staggering; very impressive display behind the bar. Oh, and some of the seats resemble old cinema seating, complete with push down seats, and they are bolted together and to the... More

I was initially intrigued by the concept of Spoken in Exmouth. A rustic chic American cafe bar cum restaurant just off the town square. The reality is somewhat different. I came away thinking it was a poorly organised glorified greasy spoon. True American dinners are characterised by milkshakes, pancakes with bacon and great service. Spoken gets the food right, but...

Very lively bar with plenty of choice for alcohol, good atmosphere and seemed the buzzing place in Exmouth Saturday night, not from the town so headed here as seemed busy and it was very good. Menu looked good too but didn't eat as anything.

Spoken is not a spirits bar, a cocktail bar, a cafe or a restaurant - it's a fusion of the whole lot! Oh and it's a gastro bar! We are whatever you want us to be! We have one of the largest selections of vodkas in the UK erectly standing at 186 vodkas, 160 gins, 90 rums and a whole lot more! We offer a American street food to a high standard. We have the loveliest and friendliest teams for miles and a comfortable and trendy atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you soon...
