Had an excellent meal (best of the week in Devon) here. And great with the dogs as well. A true local pub for local villagers that served good (large) portions of all our meals. We had liver and mash, chicken, scallops and black pudding selections. All very good. Desert was creme caramel, bread and butter and ice-cream. All pretty good.... More

The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, going above board to ensure that we had a pleasant experience, even though they were extremely busy. There were a vast choice of dishes, including naughtylicious desserts. We went again for the Monday steak & wine deal and were not disappointed. We will be trying the Thursday night fish & chip deal next.... More

This pub is our village local and time and again it doesn't disappoint. We always get great tasting food, a good selection of food and drink and a very friendly welcome with great service. We also used their function room for a large party during which they provided a Bbq for our guests whose comments about the food were all... More

We have eaten here several times recently as needed to be in Woodbury, Devon. The pub offers a good range of decent quality food and the landlord is extremely friendly but also accommodating. On all occasions we have enjoyed a good meal for a local pub. The prices are not overinflated so you feel like you are getting a fair... More

We visited The Maltsters Arms with some friends for Sunday lunch. Everything was great! Food was delicious - most of us had the roast (meat was tasty and perfectly cooked with all the trimmings!), there was an additional menu too, plus the normal kids menu was available as well. Good value - £13 for a roast and a choice of... More

This may of course have just been a bad night for the Chef, as the Beef Lasagne was served with pasta sheets that were tough and it had clearly been left for too long in the microwave. But this was not a one off - the Sticky toffee pudding was only sticky at the top, it's lower half was unforgivably... More

Enjoyed a relaxing evening here, wood burner was fired up and our dog was very pleased to lay in front of it. It was quite a busy evening so getting a drink proved tricky but the food came quickly and was tasty - would certainly go back again

Situated in the traditional village of Woodbury, Exeter, this is a great traditional pub/restaurant. Although the dining area is small, the menu is excellent and the service is very good. The food is typically British and there are specials on the board. The pub also has a large hall for functions. The pub is extremely popular with locals and if... More
