We are also a Cask Marque accredited pub, which means you can be certain of a good pint of local ale as well as a selection of more widely known beers and lagers.

We are family friendly and boast a dining area for parties of up to 100 guests. Our heated terrace is perfectly located on Exeter’s picturesque quayside and is the ideal place to watch the world go by whether you are eating or drinking.

Preorder app is poor and doesn’t work. Drinks took a long time to turn up

The booking system was well devised and the night went without a hitch. The service was on the slow side, but fully understandable in the Christmas period. Everybody on our table of 10 expressed positive feedback and had a good time.

It was all absolutely fantastic. The staff were helpful and friendly which helped organise the large group of people we had. The food was absolutely excellent. The service was fast and efficient and everyone had a lovely time. The decoration and atmosphere were also beautiful. Thank you very much would definitely recommend On the Waterfront and will return another time in the near future!

A fantastic place to eat and enjoy a friendly gathering, only downside was staff weren't knowledgeable about the menu but went to ask our questions.

Great afternoon with family, no probs with food. Wasn’t too keen o preorder but it worked very well. Only mistake was mine as I messed up a desert order. Only reason for four stars on atmosphere that lighting could be better! Couldn’t read instructions on kids drawing kits etc! So better lighting would be good! Staff were friendly and very efficient. Good reports from all!

A great meal - the pizzas were amazing! The staff were also very kind and let us wait for a very late taxi inside the restaurant even after they had officially closed and were clearing away - saved us waiting in the freezing cold so thank you!

We booked for 8pm and arrived early . Our table wasn’t ready but that was fine as we had a drink at the bar - good choice of beers. It was very busy in the restaurant - we ordered starter and main , however after 40mins of waiting we had to chase the starter. No indication was given at time of ordering the timescale. Tables who sat down after us got their food first . Shocking service & unacceptable even when busy - waited over an hour for a pizza !!!

Fantastic service for a party of 14. Were really accommodating when a large number of us were late due to traffic. Great food, great service at a good price.

We all enjoyed every aspect of our visit. The building is beautiful and the atmosphere was very chilled - just what we wanted. We ordered enough food for an army and enjoyed every bite! Thank you

We enjoyed our visit which followed a visit to the Christmas Market. Particularly impressed that you recognised it was our anniversary, I don’t even remember mentioning it so it was a really nice surprise. Thank you.
