A classic country pub, The Lazy Toad Inn Exeter has earned a place in the Michelin Guide with its hearty British and European menu. Housed in an 18th-century, Grade II-listed building, this character-packed pub also boasts a peaceful beer garden.

Favourites on The Lazy Toad menu include loin of pork with Jerusalem artichoke purée, salt-baked celeriac and red wine salsify, blue cheese and hazelnut tortellini with crispy kale, and classic fish and chips served with minted mushy peas and hand-cut chips. Amongst the indulgent desserts, savour glazed banana loaf with peanut butter ice cream, or lemon posset with passion fruit jelly and shortbread biscuit.

With open fires and original features, The Lazy Toad in Brampford Speke is a charmingly rustic venue serving English and international wines, and local ales. Sunday roasts are also a firm favourite.

The Lazy Toad Inn Devon sits in an idyllic village on the banks of the River Exe. Exeter is just a 15-minute drive away.

    Fantastic place and a very welcoming Barman who made us feel comfortable immediately. The monkfish dish was absolutely gorgeous and a generous portion size.

    Lovely pub with approachable and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Thought the desserts were overpriced although tasty. Overall a nice place to go. Will go back.

    A lovely pub with a great ambience. We decided to try somewhere different as there are now so many places to eat in Exeter but they are mainly busy chain restaurants with no personalised service.
    We had a fabulous meal at the Lazy Toad, there is a great menu choice and there was excellent service. We will definitely be back...Thank you!

    Lovely pub, good atmosphere and very welcoming hosts. Regular menu plus specials board and unusually, a superb choice of gluten free options – a refreshing change to find a kitchen that really cares and understands how to cook for those with severe allergens. All of the dishes were delightful but the short rib beef was standout. Will definitely visit again.
