Good to see that the current incumbents have settled in well and are working hard to meet and exceed the performance of the previous owners. Efficient and effective 'phone call booking and we were expected upon arrival. Shown to our table straight away though a little dark so a challenge to read the menu - sorted by moving to the...

This title has been used by a previous reviewer. But I can't think of a more appropriate word for the following reasons. I came here a few years ago and was very impressed: my recent visit was disappointing. The pub fabric comprises a beautiful building with an authentic, homely, and welcoming interior and friendly staff, but the main component of... More

Stopped here for Lunch and next day Dinner. The food was good but the range a little limited. Prices were keen and portion size very good. The meals were very tasty and well presented. The drinks range was good and the staff very friendly and helpful

We stopped by The Old Inn recently for Sunday Lunch (2 adults and a child) - We have visited this pub several times over the years, but sadly I think this will be the last as our meal was very disappointing. It was the later side of service but I phoned first and was told it wasn't too late and... More

We booked a meal at another pub down the road, but wished we'd booked here, only realising when we popped in on the way. The menu looked really nice, especially the specials menu. We sat in the bar in front of the wonderful open fireplace, on a cold December night. Coming from London, we're used to free wifi, so the... More

After spending the day with my wife and daughter Christmas shopping in Exeter, we decided to stop off and try the food, for the first time. What an absolute delight. The food was excellent. Thank you from a disillusioned caterer.
