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.

    Usually good but this time it was chaotic and there was obviously confusion about the order.

    Waiter v pleasant and helpful. However the food was luke warm. The veg came out first, that was not v hot. We then had to wait for the meat platter which arrived several minutes later and again was not piping hot. It tasted v nice however. The restaurant was not busy. Also, one of my daughters had pasta and the other sausages. The pasta came in a tiny bowl, it was a v small portion in comparison to my other daughters meal. Perhaps a bigger bowl next time. Finally, call me old fashioned but mobile phones when working?!

    Four of us ate. The food was of good quality and our waitress was friendly and provided good service. The barman that took our drink orders & brought over my pot of tea was, however, rather curt. As a side note, my tea pot had a saucer for a lid (when the barman brought this over no explanation/apology was given, he merely put it down & walked off). I burned myself when pouring it as the tea came out over the top & it then went cold rather quickly as a saucer isn't designed to fit a teapot.
    I would have given four stars were it not for the overall attitude of the barman and the incident with the tea.
