Popped in here today for lunch, we ordered off the specials board, grilled Salmon, prawn and mushroom dressing, now potatoes and a plate of salad excellent, well worth a visit.

Food was good-generous meat portions & fresh vegetables at reasonable cost.
BUT
1. There was no heating other than an open fire at the end of the restaurant so we ate with our jumpers on.
2. One large hairy dog was chained in the doorway & another strolled around the restaurant unsupervised staring at the carvery counter.We are animal lovers but this was too much like eating in a zoo.

Not been here before and weren’t really sure what to expect, outside you can’t really see in but it was great. Lovely atmosphere , relaxed, fire on just what we needed after a walk with our dog. Dogs are allowed in. Good idea to book as it was busy. Carvary was all fresh , beef was tender and tasty and puddings were good too. Staff were really helpful and friendly Defiantly be back thanks for a lovely meal

We attended an annual dinner of an Exeter based organisation for about 40 people, which took place in a private room. A three course carvery meal and coffee. We were all made to feel welcome and the "mature" staff [no students!] were well organised and knew exactly what to do and when to do it. So no unnecessary queuing at the carvery, and excellent table service. Went out of their way to ensure that our party of ten had our own table and could all sit together. Nothing was too much trouble fir the staff who were thoughtful and very efficient. The food was good, wholesome and plentiful, the starters generous, and the main course served on hot plates. A good choice of deserts. The set price was very reasonable. Lovely atmosphere and plenty of cosy seating in the bar area to relax in before leaving.
