(THE HOTEL CARPARK DOES NOT EXCEPT LWB Vans, Large vehicles, Campers & large commercial vehicles. The hotel is an old 'Coaching Inn' built in 1356! And is situated in the City Centre within the old city walls. There was an extension built on the back for 32 of the rooms in 1971 (These rooms have lift access). However the remainder rooms including the suite are located in the 'Old Part' above the Inn (These involve stairs and no lifts.) This part is a 'listed'property as the building is an 'historical place of interest' due to its part in Medievil history. The Pub boasts a large 'Chargrill Menu' concentrating on Steaks, Burgers & traditional pub classics to suit all tastes. There are 2 bars. The 'Tap Bar' is open 7 days a week and is traditional 'Olde Worlde' pub still with all the Medieval fixtures & fittings that has lots of fine Real Ales to choose from. And a 'Cider Bar' that opens at weekends and was newly refurbished in October 2015 & is where breakfast is served every morning. The pub also boasts an exclusive 'Secret Garden' very popular with couples. It's ideally situated to enjoy all the city has to offer, from its famous Gothic Cathedral, The Quay & the Princesshay shopping centre.

The receptionist was very welcoming and cheerful and checked us in easily and also sorted out our query regarding the car parking - it is free for guests so no need to get a ticket. The car park notice board says to get a ticket and then produce a copy to get the amount taken

We visited last Aug. The staff are very friendly and genuinely care. The pub had great food and a real British warm atmosphere. Overall, a great experience and we would definitely recommend and go there again next time we're in Exeter.

Since the carver ended, Sunday lunch is not as good. The food is served at your table and is clearly not cut from the joint. Very disappointed. Won’t go again. Standards being lowered. A shame. Good atmosphere though

We decided to have a Xmas social here. The place was packed but we were welcomed in a friendly way by a lovely Scottish lady. We were waiting on a few more people to arrival and not once did she rush us to get our meals served. The food was top notch, we had the Xmas 3 course.
