First visit this evening and took advantage of the two courses for £17.50 per person. Starters and main courses were very fresh and extremely well cooked and presented. Nice atmosphere and will definitely return and sample other items on the full menu.

Very friendly staff and excellent food and wine. I just walked in but they were fully booked but I could have my meal at the bar. I will certainly come back here. Nice cosy restaurant in a cellar

Centrally located in Exeter, the setting is relaxed, the food extremely tasty and well presented and the staff attentive and helpful. There are only approx. 5-6 options for each course but this allows the chefs to give full attention to the choices made and this...More
