Great meal with the family. Service was perfect and my skate was cooked to perfection. Was greeted with lovely smiles by the staff upon entering the restaurant which is always a great sing. Then finishing of the night with live music in the bar! Fantastic

Ate here last week on a Wednesday - they have great hump day offers. But I would say was super value at all times. We loved the infusion gins! The steaks were simply the best, soft and succulent! Loved it! Thank you. Can highly recommend.

Friendly staff! Quirky interior, and a modern menu. Drink selection was great, Steak was good and sides were tasty. What I liked about this place is even when it’s busy it’s still relaxed unlike allot of other places in Exeter. I will definitely be returning!

As I said the music was upstairs and did not start until 2215 on the evening we were there. We did not find the music (which had started before the end of our meal) to be a problem. You could hear it in the background but... More
