I have been to this pub on every visit I have made to Exmouth over the past 4 years and feel it is really time I wrote a review. My friend and I had searched for a really good place to go for a decent roast meal on a Sunday in Exmouth, and the Beacon Vaults has never disappointed us.... More

This was only our second visit but the first made us keen to come back for more. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived and while we waited for the rest of our table to arrive. The menu is small but I feel varied enough for most tastes - I opted for the Jamaican Goat Curry and... More

A warm welcome, well cooked and honest pub food, including homemade desserts and a Cornish cheeseboard, and friendly service. On a very wet and windy evening so pleased we made 5 minute walk from our nearby Premier Inn.

We had a very nice meal, even though the menu was limited too much to choose from as liked it all. Going back tomorrow to try something different. Well worth the visit.

Ate here twice during a short break in Exmouth - so good the first time we had to go back! Majority of the menu is available as gluten free and the food both times was absolutely fantastic. Staff very friendly.

We took the dog and received a very warm welcome. Our dog was given treats by the staff throughout the evening and they even put one with the after dinner mints. Very thoughtful. The food and service was really great. The pub had a warm and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

Hi Everyone, Welcome to The Beacon Vaults! We are a pub restaurant between the town centre and the beach. In our Restaurant we offer a varied menu, mostly based around good Homemade English food. Our Restaurant has seats 26 and our Bar area seats around 35 people plus 4 high back chairs around the bar, and of course standing room. We have a good range of beers, lagers, wines, soft drinks and a choice of real ales.We play a wide range of music dvds from Adele to Motown, Micheal Buble to complications. We have free wi-fi and packs of cards, connect 4, newspapers and magazines in the bar area. (In the evening we aim for a more relaxed adults atmosphere, so we do have a 'Kids Kerfew' of no under 6s after 6pm)For more details check out our web page.Hope to see you all soon,Thanks Andy and Lynne,Owners.
