Well House Tavern
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This is the first Michael Caines' tavern - located next to the Abode Hotel, which houses his fine-dining restaurant. As you would expect from this Michelin-starred chef, the food here is absolutely top quality, yet retains the tradition of a classic pub lunch menu. A selection of sandwiches and wraps are available with tempting fillings such as roast Devon Red Ruby beef or prawn and dill. Jacket potatoes, nachos and salads make great snack choices, or soup of the day served with crusty canon loaf.
Main meals are hearty and traditional, find possibly the best fish and chunky chips of any pub in Exeter, and the 'pye' of the day is becoming legendary. A pint of prawns is served with crusty bread and Marie Rose sauce - a perfect lunch dish - and you'll also find a selection of pastas. Drop in on a Sunday and experience a roast with all the trimmings - with a pint of real ale, you've got the perfect Sunday afternoon.
The Well House Tavern offers a staggering selection of traditional cask-conditioned ales. They regularly have beers from Otter, O'Hanlons, Exe Valley, Scattor Rock, Branscombe, Skinners, and other local breweries, as well as occasional guest ales from other parts of the country. With such good food and good beer, any lunchtime visit here is sure to turn into a longer stay.
