The Old Firehouse


Widely acknowledged to be one of Exeter’s best ale and cider pubs, The Old Firehouse is very popular with students and locals alike and offers a buzzy atmosphere along with a great range of food and drink at reasonable prices! Our Head Chef has been trained to the highest level in French, Italian and traditional English cuisine and creates delicious, rustic food using locally-sourced ingredients where possible. From pub favourites and delicious vegetarian dishes to giant pizzas to feed a crowd, there’s so much choice that no-one’s going to go hungry! 

We serve food daily from midday and our pizza oven fires up from 5pm, we also serve Sunday roasts! Children over 10 are welcome from 12 noon to 5pm, after which we operate a strict over 18s policy.

As well as our famous Monday quiz hosted by Terry & Jude, we also host a great range of free live music including an Open Mic night every other Thursday. 

Check out our social feeds and our website for upcoming gigs and events!

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
