This independent basement wine bar-restaurant is a “reliable city-centre standby” with a “lovely atmosphere”, plus a “decent menu” and wines – even a reporter who says “it won’t thrill you” says “it won’t let you down either!”

There’s “not much choice in Exeter unfortunately” but this “business quarter stalwart” (morphing into a “night out destination on evenings and weekends”) definitely merits a visit for its “super wines” and, to a slightly lesser degree, “interesting” and “good-value” menu.

“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).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
