After reading the previous reviews my family and I thought we would try this for Sunday lunch. We were not disappointed as the food and portion sizes satisfied two very large teenagers. The pub is a little tired but the atmosphere is good and service is excellent.

Housed in the old Exeter Rowing Club boat house, in use up until the late 1970s or so - a pleasant riverside location within easy walking distance of the Quay and the city centre. We had a very enjoyable meal here on a Saturday evening. The food was very tasty and portions were of a good size. The range on... More

Booked rather late on Friday for a Mothers Day meal on the Sunday. We had a genuinely great time - the food was superb, inexpensive considering the day, the staff were really pleasant, and the location was nice (as long as you can ignore the gasometers, the rest of the view is rather picturesque :-) ). Honestly, I don't have... More

I went to the port royal for a meal with my girlfriend and her mother. To look at the outside of the pub it does not look great but don't let this deceive you the inside is warm and inviting and has a very good atmosphere. The drinks are a good price and the beer is well kept. The restaurant... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times. Service is quick, prices are resonable and the food is fantastic. Not very well known in Exeter, it is a little further walk past all the cave shops. Seating outside over looking the quay and plentiful seating inside. Landlord Carlos is a fun guy, very welcoming and always has a smile. Staff... More
