Easter bank holiday and decided to head down the road to Exmouth for an afternoon out. After a bimble around all 6 of us were in need of lunch and as we'd never tried Ocean we thought we'd give it a go. £70 for 6 meals and drinks including a local real ale is great value. Try the posh fish... More

Looks can be deceptive. This is a glorified cafe with a bar. Not much on the menu to call it a grill. We only wanted a snack so ordered a fish chowder and crab cakes. For chowder call porridge (thick and Gluppy could have used it to repoint my garden wall. Crab cakes overdone and did not taste of cab.... More

Visited on what was probably the first sunny weekend of the year so Exmouth was packed. This restaurant looked modern with a good family menu and we were able to find a table. Food was average quality but above average prices. We had to wait about 45-60 minutes for food, which it would have been nice to have been told... More

I visit this amazing facility once or twice a week with my granddaughter and meet friends there regularly. You cannot fault the facility and children just love it. It is enormous with different areas for different ages but you do see toddlers gleefully staggering around the junior area. The staff are all young and generally delightful but woefully totally untrained.... More

Looks like a lovely place, the staff let it down, none of which looked like they could be bothered to be there, one chef was coughing into his hands repeatedly and carried on preparing food, and the pulled pork sandwich i can only describe as dog food in a bap

Just had lunch...Didn't try the arcade, soft play or bowling here. It's a bit like a wetherspoons..Order at the bar etc and it has the usual range of sandwiches, burgers etc. The kids had fish fingers, sausages and chips and we had a crab sandwich and a "posh" fish fingers (goujon) sandwich. The service is very quick as the food... More

Bowling is good, arcade is a bit rubbish, play are only any good for kids probably less than 6 years old and can get pricey if you don't feed them before going in. not tried the grill bar yet but will do.

We are Regular visitors to exmouth with the children and due to the weather we opted for the eat in option rather than the usual fish and chips on the beach. This establishment always looks inviting from outside so we gave it a try. We found ourselves a table and hunted down a high chair for our toddler which unfortunately... More

Popped in after a walk and we enjoyed tea & scone & also lemon & poppyseed muffin. Both clearly had been freshly made & were really tasty. I could have done with more jam being my only small criticism Very tasty
