The Fat Pig


Tucked away in Exeter's west quarter, this old Victorian pub is an independent free house. We pride ourselves on our creativity and support of local independent suppliers.

We operate a distillery on site producing Gin, Moonshine, Rum and Vodka. We also operate an onsite Brewery producing a range of traditional and craft ales both European and American in style.

To top it all off we have a smokehouse too, which lends itself to our small but all home created menu, available daily.

If you like small independent not bland corporate you'll settle right in!

    First visit to this place, nice to try a different pub, beer was excellent, but the slow cooked pork was not the most tender, and we could cook better at home, the salad was way over seasoned. Too... Read full review
