We happened to pass this little place while out looking for a new restaurant to eat at. After driving for a while, we turned around to give it a try. Amazing! We were seated in a spacious and quaint room surrounded by large windows overlooking...More

Ate at the bar and service was great. Found out the hard way that the word "Lite Fare" on the menu means small; not less calories. Had the fish and chips ( my choice, no fries ), and left hungry. For 15 bucks this should...More

River is the main draw. Food and service very average. Wait staff inexperienced, food was simple and plain. Interior decor lacking. View of the rushing river is excellent: gulls, herons and osprey fishing. Will try other restaurants in Exeter before coming here again.
