Built from reclaimed materials, The Barn Owl sits above a former agricultural district and serves quality British pub food from an eclectic menu. Olive green walls complement distressed oak furnishings and raw brickwork, whilst a sprawling beer garden caters for al fresco dining at The Barn Owl in Devon.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Barn Owl menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Barn Owl ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Perched upon the fringes of the M5, The Barn Owl in Exeter sits right at the hub of Exeter Business Park.

  • (**** 29 October 2016 by Kim Makda from Blacon

    How disappointing. Children's food undercooked, even when it was sent back to the kitchen the meat was pink and running with pink juices when it was returned. Staff were not rude but clearly were not impressed we asked for the meat to go back, we received no apology for it either!!

  • (**** 18 October 2016 by Mark Allen from Plymouth

    Very disappointed, tiny 'sharing' platter, not enough for one yet alone to share

    No butter with bread

    Deconstructed prawn cocktail was poor

    Carrot cake/cheesecake was dry/stale

    Enough said, we won't be going back

    After a wait of 50 minutes to receive our food, the food was really nice & everyone said their meals were very nice..

    Despite poor reviews, we decided to give the restaurant a go and were pleasantly surprised. Service good, food lovely, really cosy atmosphere. Would definitely return. Don't believe all you read online!
