Food lacked variety. Too much meat - mainly burgers and steaks. No real seafood options, limited vegetarian options.

Just wanted to make a new notes on the food, I think your burgers would really benefit from some sauce, a good ketchup/mayo/American mustard based sauce is really needed. Also the patty itself wasn’t seasoned enough and just tasted like a slab of bland over cooked mince- could do with salt and pepper and potentially some Worcestershire sauce. The ribs hadn’t been smoked long enough so the fat hadn’t rendered and the cartilage was tough. I think you could do with trimming the cartilage off because it is tough to cut through and not pleasant to eat. The chicken also hadn’t been smoked long enough, couldn’t even see a smoke ring- it was very most however. Having said this the service was good and the rest of the food was lovely.

I am afraid we were very disappointed, as our mains were wrongly ordered, we wanted pulled pork, but due to a waitress error, we got pulled beef of some sort which was very salty, as the dish came with a potato dish, we were offered one dish of fries free!!! and felt obligated to keep the beef. part of this dish was replicated on the salmon dish, which didn’t look very thrilling and didn’t give a good impression ! Although the waitress apologised, she should have offered maybe free desserts or coffees. The restaurant and outlook are amazing but really let down by this experience:) it was embarrassing to our guests and we would not dine there again.

Came here to take my boyfriend out for his 21st birthday as we havent been before and always wanted to try it. It started off with the drinks and starters coming promptly, except the 'crackling' we ordered didnt come out when it was supposed to but we decided to wait until the mains came out to mention it just incase it came out with them. Once our main courses came out we were disapointed even more. The steaks were cold and very tough and fatty, my hands actually ached after the meal because of how hard it was cutting the meat up. Considering you are charging £17 for a steak this is not the standard of food you should be serving. My main was also supposed to come with sweet potato fries but instead i was served potato salad and then had to wait for my order to be corrected. The chips on my boyfriends plate were also very hard and cardboardy as if they had been sat around for a while and then just stuck in the fryer again. And then to top the meal off when we finally got our crackling we discovered it wasnt crackling at all and was just some pork scratchings in a bowl, which was not what we wanted or what we thought we were getting. Although the waitress apoligised for this and took the 'crackling' off the bill, this does not make up for the appauling standard for the rest of the meal considering how much we paid for it. Ive had better steaks in wetherspoons before. Overall i am very disapointed with the trip and it has put me off ever coming again since it was for a 21st birthday and did not meet the standards anyone would expect from such a restaurant.

Lively atmosphere with live music, food pretty good though lamb only just cooked, nice attentive waitress but service way too slow. Great if you are looking for a leisurely evening but don't go if you are in s rush

When we arrived they had no awareness of our booking but it wasn't busy so they accommodated us. The waiter - Stuart - was brilliant really efficient and helpful. Also, it was a birthday celebration so without notice was happy to bring out the cake we had brought and supplied plates and a knife. Couldn't have asked for more from the service - thank you.

We had a work social at Samual Jones, Exeter a few days ago. I booked a few tables for a large party of 20 and was able to ammend numbers closer to the date without any hassel. The service when we arrived was excellent. We had drinks from the bar whilst we waited for everyone to arrive. The food was great and they re-made an order for someone who didnt quite get there in time. Will definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.

Everything was wonderful, the desserts are a little overpriced for their size but very well presented and very tasty. Everything else was of good size, value and taste. Service was quick and attentive.

We had a party of 24 The service was good and well organised though some had finished main course by the time the final ones came out. The food was disapointing. Generally a lot of dishes were served cold. the fish was a very small portion and had no real flavour. Meatloaf was poor as was the general reflection on main courses. Starters generally good - nice lobster bisque but small portion. Deserts were genrally ok but again small portions. The party consisting of owners of exeter businesses felt that the venue couldnt really cope with the size of party.
