A lovely restaurant situated just outside of Exeter, the staff were really friendly & helpful. The portions were reasonable with a nice selection of sweets on offer. Would be a great place to sit outside on a summers evening.

After a not very satisfactory Sunday lunch earlier in the year, we recently visited the Toad again with friends who come here regularly. We were not expecting a great deal, so were pleasantly surprised. The menu is not extensive and I would have liked a little more choice, but the food is undoubtedly good and well cooked. We had breaded... More

Second time a visit this place and it´s been fine both times. Staff is friendly, food is above average and the inn is nice and cosy.

Had a great Sunday lunch here last Sunday, roast beef was spot on, staff were attentive and booking online was very pleasant. Pub has great interior and attractive courtyard / garden outside. Top marks

We were walking on the footpaths and stopped at this place for lunch. We were able to sit outside in the shade and enjoy a wonderful "Ploughman's Lunch for Two". It was served on a wooden board and there was more than enough food for the two of us. Staff very friendly and the setting outside very nice.

We went for Sunday lunch to The Lazy Toad earlier this month and had a perfect Sunday roast. The beef was perfectly cooked and the Yorkshire Pudding was fantastic. The puddings were excellent as well and the staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. We shall definitely return.

We had a lovely lunch at The Lazy Toad. There were good light sized options. The staff were really friendly and helpful on the phone when booking. And they were great when there too. Portions were big (I couldn't finish mine) but food was lovely. We are already booked to go back!

I have been here several times now and have never been disappointed! My partner and I went for a Saturday lunch and had amazing fish and chips. When my sister visited we took her here and had a lovely three course meal. This weekend my parents visited so we took them here for Sunday lunch and again were blown away... More

All good! Nice waiting staff provided a good service and the food was at a very good standard. Only criticism is that the gap between courses could have been a bit longer....
