Came here whilst visiting the in-laws, we’d been several times before in the summer months but not in the winter. The welcome is warm, the food is good and they are very dog friendly so all in all a great experience.

We came to Exmouth for the night and popped into The Grove to watch rugby. We decided to have a meal and the British Beef Burger and Butternut Squash Goats Cheese and Spinach Wellington were outstanding. A great pub, atmosphere, staff and great food. Will...More

Hi Steven, Always good to hear when we get it right. Really glad that you liked the Burger & Wellington. Hope to see you back here again soon, maybe for the six nations on the giant screen (but hopefully before). Cheers George

An evening meal with friends. I had the pork loin which was good, the cauliflower cheese and sweet potatoes chips went well. It’s a nice place. The big downside is the toilets. Lock on the door was broken and they were generally disheveled.More

Hi Simon, Sorry about the lock, it has since been fixed. Completely agree with you about the toilets, they are distinctly below average, however; there is a light at the end of the turn (and its not an onrushing train), Young's plan to do a...More

We rented. House next to this place 10 years ago, I really values having a pub close by that serves Young's. Went back for a pint, noisy hopeless music, staff more interested in them selves than customers, bit of a gastro joint. I'm sure Young's...More

Had a very enjoyable lunch there. Food was good as was the service. Our group of six had a range of different choices and everyone was pleased with what they had. Would definitely go back

Came in for a very good Sunday roast after a very long walk so a bit tired and hungry. Nice to see an unusual veggie roast option (Pear and Walnut) with all of the trimmings, good sized portions and a varied wine list. Service was...More

Hi there, Thanks for the review. Excellent to hear about the mussels, we source them locally from Exmouth Mussels down at the quay. Sorry to hear that the meat on Sunday wasn't quite warm enough, we will feed that back to the chefs. Hope to...More

The best location pub in exmouth but the food is dreadful and sinking! From tonight's limited menu I ordered sausages and mash which was from the smaller plate menu. I asked if this could come as a normal size, (rather than child size), apparently this...More

First time experience at this pub, which has great views of the estuary. However, the service and pricing leaves a lot to be desired. Ordered 3x small meals, and selection of drinks - £7.50 for a house wine is a ridiculous rip-off price, explained by...More
