The Stand Off


Owned by former Rugby Union player Gareth Steenson, The Stand Off is Exeter's Irish bar and restaurant.

Large TVs throughout the bar and restaurant as well as a giant projector means you can watch live sport all day long. They are obviously passionate about rugby, so you'll never miss a televised game here, but you can also catch other live sports throughout the day and evening.

The bar has a great selection of beers, ales, ciders and Guinness on tap, as well as a good choice of spirits and wines. 

Good, homecooked food sourced from the best local suppliers is a priority at The Stand Off, with some amazing food choices including the Clubhouse Menu (filled with delicious pub classics), Chef Specials (seasonal dishes), the ‘Home of Loaded Fries’ menu, legendary Sunday Roasts and a partnership with the funky Absurd Bird, serving delicious chicken treats! 

It wouldn’t be an Irish bar if you weren’t jigging along to a brilliant Irish band, and there is regular live music on Saturday nights, featuring local bands.
