• We're OPEN OPEN AGAIN!! Wed - Sat through the summer... serving lunch and dinner, and drinks in between! Come and see us and enjoy our wonderful gardens as well as our cosy (but nicely spread out!) wine bar and restaurant area inside. After a tricky few months in lockdown, we've missed you all so much, we're delighted to have reopened on 4th July and very encouraged by all the support from our customers and the confidence they've shown in us. It's thankfully been rather a busy few weeks and the garden is looking glorious, so you've all been making the most of the warm weather... We're starting with a small team and limited opening hours (Wed-Sat) for the foreseeable future while trade builds and covid restrictions ease hopefully! 
  • NEW GARDEN BAR OPEN! We've not been sitting on our lorrels during lockdown honestly, but have set up a Garden Bar outside to make it easier to order a drink on fine weather days, with plenty of table space available in our beautiful gardens which are bursting with colourful pots, hanging baskets, and borders. Exeter's best kept secret some say...! This bar will generally be open on fair weather days, approxmately 12pm - 7pm, for ordering and collection like a normal bar to enjoy drinks in the wine bar garden or to take away, and this bar can be accessed via the garden entrance at the back of our building. At certain times of the day particular during sunny weather, this may mean we close the main bar and front door to allow us to staff the garden bar as necessary. Just come round the side of the building and join us in the garden directly!
  • KEEPING EVERYONE SAFE Please bear in mind there will be a few changes in the way we run the show, simply to keep our team and our customers safe by minimising the risk of transmission of Covid-19. Let me reassure you that we have numerous measures in place to facilitate social distancing, and we'd very much appreciate you respecting our new policies. For example, the front door to the wine bar will be for ENTRY only, and customers will be asked to EXIT via the garden entrance, although the back door remains a two-way thoroughfare, so please just check the mirrors for anyone coming the opposite way and respectfully stand aside as neccessary. Please ensure you use the sanitising station by each door on arrival, and as often as you feel necessary during your visit. We can only offer table service currently, rather than bar service, for both drinkers and diners. Lunch and Dinner bookings are strongly advised while we have reduced capacity. Drinkers are very welcome inside as long as table space allows, or of course in the gardens.
