A charming pub with rooms above, just a hop, skip and jump away from Exeter’s historic city centre and Central train station. A firm favourite with the locals, with a fine range of real ale and craft beer aplenty. Open all day, from breakfast through to dinner (and every delicious plate in-between) our British seasonal menu is bursting with flavour, with something for all to enjoy.

Our Cellar Bar in Exeter offers a unique private space with oodles of character and charm, lending itself perfectly for parties, celebrations and corporate events. Not forgetting our gorgeous sun-drenched courtyard garden, the perfect spot to kick back and relax with friends over a cocktail (or two).


There’s no better place to catch the matches than the best pub showing live sports in Exeter.
