Nestled on the banks of the River Exe, Fishermans Cot is a beautiful thatched roof pub that offers up a great selection of classic pub grub and international recipes. The crackling fires inside make it a snug spot to relax, while the riverside gardens are wonderfully tranquil.

The Fishermans Cot menu is packed with a great selection of recipes for the whole family. There are sharing platters of antipasti, and a popular carvery with a choice of succulent roast meats with all the trimmings. Hearty mains include pub classics like cider battered fish and chips, bangers and mash, and slow-cooked pork shoulder, and there is a grill selection of steaks and well-stacked burgers.

For dessert, diners at Fishermans Cot Exeter are treated to indulgent options like red velvet cheesecake, chocolate melting cake, and lemon posset. Cask ales from Marston's Brewery are on tap, as well as world wines and premium spirits.

Offering traditional comfort and tranquil water views, Fishermans Cot is a 17-minute drive from Crediton Rail Station.

    Lovely setting.
    Food a disappointment, uninspired menu with no surprises but reasonable price. An overemphasis on cheddar cheese, seemed to be in every dish.

  • ((((( 22 March 2017 by John Parker from Chulmleigh

    As the Fishermans Cot is a special place for us we chose have lunch there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had visited many times in the past when living in Lincolnshire and driving past to Cornwall for our holidays.

    Staff were friendly. Food was awful. If it wasn't for the fact I was on a date I would have refused to pay. I can't remember the last time I had a meal that bad.
