Description: Spoken is not a spirits bar, a cocktail bar, a cafe or a restaurant - it's a fusion of the whole lot! Oh and it's a gastro bar! We are whatever you want us to be! We have one of the largest selections of vodkas in the UK erectly standing at 186 vodkas, 160 gins, 90 rums and a whole lot more! We offer a American street food to a high standard. We have the loveliest and friendliest teams for miles and a comfortable and trendy atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you soon...

“What is acceptable these days?!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Walk in and all the seats are ripped and torn. Decoration is in serious need of an update. There's only ONE toilet! Toilet was very dirty and untidy. Every where was sticky. The staff obviously aren't bar tenders.

It's a shame because location is good and out the front gives the impression it's higher end.

Pretentious, over priced and underwhelming.

“Special occasion drinks”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Great bar, even though expensive for Exmouth. I like to come here for special occasions. G&T are lovely. It is a popular place to drink, with table service and a good vibe.

“expected something more...”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Me and my friend visited The spoken on the 5th of March. Wanted to try some coctails it seemed to have a good venue and a wide selection of bavarages. We were dissapointed with just a few coctails on the menu, but decided to stay because the bar had a nice atmosphere and lovely sparkilng ceiling. The bartender recomended us a good choice of coctails and it tasted good. We were happy about it . Although this was the only good thing in this whole experience.
After a while we ordered a bottle of prosseco with double shot of creme de casiss. The bottle of prosecco was delivered opened to our table and not even poured to our glasess. I am not even mentioning the fact he should ask us to try it first. We are not fussy we didn't say a thing, but the next thing we saw was the same bartender serving a bottle of sparkling wine to the table by the window and he did opened a bottle at the table. Did we look too poor so he assumed that we don't need a service or the bottle he served us was opened before and he did want to get rid of it? I know hospitality business its not everyone's dream to work in but opening the bottle of wine at the table is the basic. I makes me concerned about the future visits. Wouldn't it be better to buy a bottle of prosecco in the shop ? At least you are 100% sure that no one opened it before...

“Enjoyable lunch”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We looked at quite a few spots before deciding on having lunch here. The waitress was very welcoming and attentive. Nachos were well presented and tasty - could have done with some more sauce/condiments, but really enjoyed it. Cappuccino at the end was also pretty good. Can imagine that it must be popular at night as well.

“Fun night out”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

We arrived just for a drink but decided to stay for supper. All round was good, nachos to start they were ok, a little soggy but tasty, prawn cocktail was amazing and huge! Really good wines and selection of drinks.
But is there any need for it to be so loud?? Music yes, but booming?? I'm mid 30s but really, it felt like I was eating in a night club!!
