The Exeter Inn is a warm & welcoming traditional 15th century inn in the heart of Devon, offering a menu of locally sourced quality produce. We have recently refurbished the Inn and look forward to welcoming you to our relaxed and atmospheric country pub & kitchen.

Acting as a hub to the local community we aim to cater for all requirements to a broad variety of customers, including local businesses & organisations. Our location is also ideal for touring both Devon coasts, Exmoor and Dartmoor, with easy access to M5 and A30.

The Exeter area with the nearby Exmoor National Park has much to offer you as a visitor. Anything from beautiful walks in the National Park to picturesque villages by the sea. If you want urban culture why not visit Exeter itself with its impressive cathedral and ancient architecture.

The nearby historic town of Bampton dates back to 700AD. It is a short walk away and contains many historic and beautiful buildings. Bampton takes its floral displays very seriously and and has won the national Britain in Bloom competition no less than six times.

Our team of friendly & interactive staff will ensure a valued customer experience upon your visit, which can be pre-booked via our website or by phoning.
