We’re one of Exeter’s few independent restaurants and offer simply cooked, clean and delicious food in the city centre. All of our dishes feature ingredients which are locally sourced and freshly prepared by our Chef and team.

The Club Room is our relaxed eating and meeting space and is open all day for hotel guests and non residents alike. Choose to eat from our casual club  menu or seasonal menu.  Al fresco eating and drinking when the sun shines is a must on our beautiful veranda or terrace in the green oasis of the garden while in the winter our Club Room is a cosy base, heated by a log fire.
