We were in the area to as a family group to visit the final resting place of my father in nearby Ketton. I'd booked us a table in the Exeter Arms for lunch. We were given a pleasant welcome by the friendly and attentive staff and shown to our table and provided menus...a main menu and a lighter options one.... More

Lovely food and great service, highly recommend the sticky toffee pudding. Sat by the fire you could be there all day and still feel welcome

This was a pleasurable visit to somewhere local to me. Welcomed by Tyler at the bar, the evening went without a hitch. The menus have significantly improved - a nice selection of winter warmer type dishes perfect for an up-market gastro-pub which I now think this is. The Exeter has struggled in the past to know what sort of place... More

Delicious meal and great service. Fabulous evening out. White bait for starter steak for main and cheese and biscuits for a perfect end. Top class.

I've passed this restaurant for the past 30 years and never once ventured in, until a friend of mine recommended the Exeter Arms. I visited with a new customer to my business last night, not knowing what to expect and I have to say it was tremendous. Great food, wonderful service, and a warm friendly welcome. You won't be disappointed,... More

The fish and chips was very nice and came with thick home cooked chips with it and some thick bread. I also had the breakfast here which... More

We were traveling from Scotland and wanted a pub lunch just off the A1. This pub is excellent. The food was great, a real gastro experience ! The service and decor were exceptional too. Highly recommend.

I only frequent this establishment a couple of times per year, however I have always enjoyed my dining experiences. This inn has an "olde worlde" atmosphere, with friendly and courteous staff.
