Our unique marina side location is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing drink and some good food away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront. There are great views of the Exe Estuary and the Marina from our extensive outside seating area. Right next to the landing pontoon for the Star Cross Ferry, Water Taxis, Stuart Line Cruises and the fishing boats. Child and dog friendly. If you are lucky you will get to see the swing bridge in operation too!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The sharing rib eye was very good value and superbly cooked. Service was friendly and efficient on a busy night. There are lovely views over the marina.

We always stop for a drink before going to the River Exe Cafe, the staff are lovely and friendly and service is quick. I'll be coming back soon to try the food again as haven't done that for a while. It's lovely to sit outside...by the water and the atmosphere is nice.More

Really disappointed as used to be good for choice of meals and quality. Ate there last night it was noisy as they had a function on, staff could not cope as looked very stressed and this meant service was bad. I know these places are...busy but none of the staff looked happy in their work. Not likely to eat here again. Sorry !More

We pre-booked for Sunday lunch. Our server was lovely and as we ordered roasts, the food was served very quickly. It was nicely presented and hot, and the meats were tasty and of good quality. My only negative would be that I didn't like the...gravy at all (possibly a red wine gravy??) and as this was served already on the meal, it affected the taste of everything. My husband, however, loved it so it is down to personal taste. Great location.More

One of the best fish and chips I've ever had. Beautifully cooked, piping hot, very nicely presented with mushy peas, tartare sauce, curry sauce and a charred half of lemon. Service was excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. Perfect!

Visited for a drink on a Sunday the roast on a nearby table looked amazing we would definitely return for this the next time we are in the area. Great views from the balcony but we were told to sit in a corner as they...were preparing for dinner service so could y really see the Marina as we had hoped.More

We love this place, it's funny to say but it's wonderfully easy! We usually come in mid afternoon with a sandy dog and boots on, always welcomed by a friendly face, never a problem getting a table, dog friendly, relaxed, great food I could go...on. When other resteraunts exclude dogs require booking weeks ahead, offer slow service and overpriced food, point does just the opposite! Thankfully the new owners have just upgraded things and changed none of the things that make it great and the general manager is lovely, mussels and fish soup were fab, well done guys don't change a thing!More

Booking a table at the end of service is always a risky shot, but the food provided was as good as the start of service. Roast Sunday meal comprised beautifully tender beef and plenty of vegetables. All served hot and with a smile. Recommended.

We had heard a new chap had taken over so we decided to go for my birthday with 7 friends. On booking well in advance my husband informed them that it is my birthday and its important to have a quiet corner because i suffer...real badly with tinnitus. We arrived, table set for 8 in middle of restaurant rather than in the corner where a large family were dining, their table would clearly have been more appropriate for us. Also the table was set up with 3 each side and one at each end but the tables had all the pull out bits pulled out so we all sat too far away from each other, especially the end guests couldnt speak without shouting to each other we rearranged this ourselves as the waitress didnt seem to really understand what we were saying. The food. The fish of the day, seabass I think, was amazing as was the pie, sadly i didnt order either of them, i had an aubergine thing, i love aubergines but didnt really like this, it needed some sour cream/yogurt or something , just looked like splodge and tasted like it. I also ordered the scallops which came in a sort of tasteless thin soup, not what i expected. Plum and apple crumble for dessert, cant go wrong surely!. The fruit was hard and massive. Now i know its fashionable for veg to be aldente but surely not fruit in a crumble, i actually couldnt cut it small enough with a spoon to get in my mouth it was so hard. Oh and yes, it was MY birthday...not a candle, not a chocolate, nothing... when larry re-mentioned it he was told oh we dont have any candles, end of conversation.... Happy birthday to me!More

Hi Steve. We do have a large number of tables outside which we manage on a first come first served basis. I’m afraid we do not take bookings on outside tables.
