Summary

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.

Summary

“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).

Summary

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!”
