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.

    Food and service was good, on the expense side

    Had lunch at Fishermans cott Bickleigh. Very good value for the £5 deal with starter or dessert for £2.
    Two meals for £10 or whatever is always good but when there are 3 of you it is hard for them to have to pay double. At Fishermans Cott the £7 deal is per person so even better value
