Good place if you like Youngs (as I do), though the beer is a bit on the cold side. Nice quiet atmosphere in Exeter city centre, with a big garden just under the old city walls. Didn't try the food but the menu looks good value. Tiny criticism that won't affect most people: the bar doubles as the hotel reception area so, if there is only one person on, and someone wants to check in, you don't get served at the bar until ... [yawn] ...

Imposing pub just off the centre. Nice eclectic mix of seating and log fire (punters encouraged to 'feed me' which is a nice touch)

Good to see a local guest beer now that Youngs has gone downhill since the brewery closure. My Ohanlons Yellowhammer was spot on.

Good range of well-kept beers. All-in-all, not too bad a place for a pint. Had the London Porter which was on good form. Food looked quite good to.

Felt sorry for some of the younger staff as the older (managers??) ones all stood at the left-hand side of the bar laughing and joking amongst themselves as the others did their jobs for them - despite there being quite a few empty tables to clear of plates and glasses; plus a load (25-30 at least) of empty glasses on the bar.

Like a lot of places I've been to recently, the customer comes second to their wanting to go to work to socialise and not do what they're paid for!

Rant over.......

A fairly quiet spacious pub on the edge of the city centre. The kind of pub you would go to on a sunday night for a quiet drink with your mate.
Good to get away from all the city centre chaos bars. 7/10
