My word the drinks are expensive. I keep being told that this is simply "because it is Exmouth", but even so. It gets hammered at the weekends, and with it being relatively small, it can get quite cramped, but the doorman keeps a count on how many are inside. Really nice place though.

We was on a day trip to Exmouth and after being dropped off in town on the train we wanted a drink! Franklins had seating outside available and looked good. It was!

We called in early on Saturday morning after a long drive, and it was the first place we saw that was open. We certainly hit the jackpot here. Lovely clean surroundings, very pleasant, smart and efficient staff and LOVELY food. Our breakfasts were piping hot, freshly cooked and well presented, also ample servings. We will be visiting again!

Popped into the best place in exmouth for a nice evening drink. Great service with an even better atmosphere, recently refurbished to a great standard. Some of the best bar staff I have experienced in all my travels. Always a pleasure to come here

Visited on a Monday lunchtime with my sister, I opted for a panini, which was served with fries and a salad garnish, she had a prawn cocktail which came in a tall glass and looked delicious, as it was about 1o'clock probably waited about 25minutes but it's all freshly prepared and was very nice. Would definitely return.
