“A popular haunt for the business and legal classes in Exeter”; this Southernhay basement wine bar is a “great place” where staff are “very obliging” and the food is consistently well-rated (though arguably it plays second fiddle to the wine).
In Southernhay, a basement wine bar that’s “slightly out of the centre but well worth finding” – not least for its “super wine list” (“but the food’s OK too”); the ambience is a tad schizophrenic… whilst one reporter found it “dead as a dodo”, another felt “overwhelmed by the conversation of ultra-important-sounding office workers!”
This Southernhay basement wine-bar is a “useful option in the city scene”; alongside top tipples, it's praised for its food too – a combination “seemingly popular with the area’s professional class”.
Worth seeking out in Southernhay, a “lovely” wine bar, tipped not just for its “really first-class selection of wines”, but also its “varied, good-quality and reasonably-priced” cooking.
