We were welcomed warmly by Andy and his wife. We had a drink and then dinner. The menu was not normal pub grub, but more interesting and the food was great. Service was excellent and the atmosphere in the pub, with all its history, is really nice. Would recommend highly.

Our party of seven adults and a child experienced a fantastic Christmas Day lunch at the Beacon Vaults. Food was exceptional as always, service attentive and a family friendly atmosphere was enjoyed by all. Never had a bad meal here and Andy's gravy is legendary ! Thank you Andy, Lynne and all the team for a wonderful afternoon.

Visiting Exmouth we needed a good pint and some quick food before going to the Theatre. This ticked both boxes with the range of beer (3) and quality excellent. Food was nice although perhaps a but pricey for what was offered

Welcoming, but........... - Why no starters on the menu? - Plates (oblong & narrow) inappropriate for main course! - Cold plates! - Food presentation not good due to small plates. Meat placed on top of chips with no space to deal with it, + steak 'bled' on the chips therefore making them soggy! - Go back to a) round b)... More

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.

After enjoying a 35 year reunion at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines we capped it with this visit into Exmouth with my brother and his wife (who live there). Our choice was truly inspired This place truly is quirky, serves fantastic food by a very tight knit team led by Chef Andy and his fabulous wife. 2 of us... More

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.

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.
