Near the River Exe, an eighteenth-century inn where the food is a very distinct cut above pub fare, served in an intimate dining room (Friday/Saturday evenings) or the more informal glazed atrium. A newish addition is their wet-fish deli, launched in lockdown to support local fishermen.

With its “lovely, accomplished cooking” and “beautiful building in a riverside village”, this smart, eighteenth-century inn near Exeter is “brilliant for a weekend break”. All the food is highly rated – from the eight-course tasting menu to the “excellent beef sandwiches and moreish homemade soup” served in the less formal Glasshouse.

“Really excellent cooking, with quality ingredients at a fair price” wins very enthusiastic reviews (if from a smallish fanclub) for the dining room at this handsome eighteenth century inn, which nowadays operates as a restaurant-with-rooms. There’s also a cheaper eating option – The Glasshouse, set in a glazed-in courtyard.

For 31 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).
