Truly Superb!

There are (sadly) a great many pub proprietors who should visit The Exeter Arms to see just how to do things properly! My business colleague and I visited for a couple of drinks and a meal after work and we could not have been more impressed. The ambiance, beer and food were all absolutely excellent; food was piping hot and tasty. Special thanks to front of house team Connor, Charlie and others, and the chef Patrick, all of whom and their colleagues deserve sincere recognition and our appreciation. I would not hesitate to return and I very much look forward to doing so. Well done to all, and thank you.
