Poor options for food allergies and chef clearly has limited will or capability to accommodate these. I ordered the vegetarian meze minus the flat bread (they had no gf bread). It came with 3 dips and 3 batons of carrots and 3 batons of celery....Having accepted the order they brought it to the table and told me I couldn’t have the fritters either! The saving grace was the gf brownie which was delicious.More

The best Sunday lunch ever. Slow-cooked pork belly with all the trimmings and wow 7 vegetables. If you love your gravy, this is so flavorsome and you can request more. All the family catered for, steak tender and perfectly cooked, linguine with chorizo with a...morish sauce. Fab range of gins too. Lovely friendly staff, fast service, ample portions, and relaxing surroundings. The best in the area and will now become our go-to when visiting Huntingdon.More

It's that time of year. The 'Christmas Lunch' options start to appear on menus....and they can be very good or they can be awful. From previous experience, the food in The Exhibition is consistently good, but having returned from lunch, my warning to diners would...be avoid the Turkey with trimmings option at all costs. The food was bland, parts were lumpy, some parts cold, fatty bacon....and a sense that it had been plated up on 1st December and partially reheated every day since, until we ordered it. Just order something else from the menu...anything else......just avoid the 'nightmare before Christmas menu'. Still charged full price despite highlighting our disappointment, so don't hold out any hope of a Christmas miracle. Just order something that needs to be cooked from fresh and not tortured in a microwave.More

Having only lived in the area a year, we frequently visit The Ex with the kids, the dog and on own our own. Nothing but a friendly atmosphere each and everytime. The food is absolutely delicious, hats off to the chef and his unique cooking...combination of flavours. A must place to visit!More

We visited with high expectations after reading the previous reviews but were all very disappointed. The staff, whilst reasonably friendly, were unorganised. The service was slow. The seafood was quite good but the aranchini was a huge hard lump of crispy stodge that sat like...a rock in the stomach. We had to negotiate for the balsamic reduction that should have been served with it and after some time got given some balsamic and oil dressing 🤦‍♀️ The 'side salad' was a sorry thing too with some limp mixed leaves and not much else.More

We took the boat to Godmanchester and ate at the Exhibition very welcoming staff, great selection of food and drinks. Pizza was lovely. Can’t recommend more!

Not a place for gluten free options , very limited menu even fries are not suitable due to preparing fish and chips in the same fryer. Ordered Pimm’s and lemonade and came up with only a slice of lemon !! We decided not to have...a lunch and ordered some crisps with olives and again another bad choice. Tasteless olives washed up in water. Can’t believe in our days a so called gastropub cannot keep some gluten free bread or buns for burgers. Will definitely not returning back or recommend this place.More

Came here last weekend and enjoyed a great dinner Staff were friendly and able to help with various options as my fiancé has a dairy allergy. I personally had soup for starters, which I will admit was extremely hot (temperature wise), took a long time...to eat it. Main I had the turkey roast, nothing to complain about whatsoever, maybe the £16 cost. I do feel the bar food is a better selection and priced better, but again can’t complain about anything really.More
