Our story

We are proud to be independent and do not compromise on our values and quality. Our mission is to take fresh, locally sourced ingredients and combine them to create our own twist. Our menus are carefully written to best select the seasonal ingredients available. We combine our food with carefully selected beverages to ensure your restaurant experience feels just like home.

Situated just off Exeter’s High-Street, on Bartholomew Street East, we offer a friendly spot. So whether you’re looking for a light family lunch, romantic meal or a private hire function room, we’ve got something for everyone.

Unfortunately, due to the age and nature of the building, we currently do not have wheelchair access to the restrooms, but please be aware we are working actively to try and resolve this.
