Pubs & Bars in Exeter

For real ales, scrumptious ciders and fine wine connoisseurs Exeter is a great place to sit and enjoy a beverage. Whether you need a break from the busy city or are looking to have a fun night out there’s a place to suit everyone.

Exeter is home to some historic pubs with fascinating stories - Sir Francis Drake was said to frequent the Ship Inn on Martin's Lane, and the White Hart on South Street is one of Exeter's oldest inns. The Old Firehouse, situated in the city's old fire station, is said to be the inspiration behind JK Rowling's Leaky Cauldron in the Harry Potter series - Rowling studied at the University of Exeter.

The city also has some great cocktail bars - go upstairs in Oddfellows to discover its bespoke speakeasy cocktail bar, visit the vibrant bar at Circa 1924 where the friendly mixologists will make an exclusive cocktail just for you, or seek out Doctor Ink's Curiosities on Exeter's quayside for Victorian inspired craft cocktails! The Bike Shed Theatre's underground bar is wonderfully unique and serves delicious classic and more unusual cocktails. 

For top quality pub food, head to the Rusty Bike or Fat Pig, both home to fantastically quirky, locally sourced menus. The Hourglass also has an excellent, ever-changing menu.

In warmer months, walk or cycle to the Double Locks and The Turf waterside pubs to enjoy a drink beside the Canal and River in their large beer gardens, and summer BBQs. The Turf is one of the only pubs in the country only accessed by bike, boat or on foot!
