Castle shows the evolution of the castle through the centuries - but you have to use your imagination to picture what it looked like in previous times!

“So cold we had to wear our coats right the way through the xmas party”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

What a shame. We'd booked this venue on the promise that we would be one of many corporate parties attending, and as we are only a small company this suited us perfectly. HOwever on arrival we found ourselves put in to a side room with just 2 other tables, whilst the main, great party, seemed to be going on in the main hall. Our room had no music, decorations or atmostphere and was so cold we had to sit with our coats on throughout. The staff were miserable as sin, and when we asked for the £1 we'd had to pay for our coats, we were refused it back. There was no credit card facilities or receipts - ridiculous as it was a corporate party.

On the plus side, the food by Dartmoor Kitchen was supberb. What a shame that they chose Exeter Castle to pair up with, I hope everyone at the event realised that they were two difference companies and don't blame the caterers for such appalling organisation. They even gave us a 20% refund on our catering costs to compensate.

I don't recommend this venue for any parties during the winter.
