The Mill on the Exe is a spectacular pub in a beautiful location. With tranquil waterside gardens next to Blackaller Weir and the Millstone footbridge, it's easy to forget that the pub is only a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Exeter city centre, the university and Exeter St David’s Railway Station.

 

The Mill on the Exe is a great place for drinking, eating, meeting and socialising. The pubs layout is flexible and can be cosy and casual or spacious and corporate.

Spread across two floors, we can accommodate different groups and events and in the summer our riverside terrace is a popular place for relaxing. 

Food

We offer a wide range of dishes from light snacks to substantial main courses. We use fresh, seasonal produce and change our specials menu daily.

 

Wherever possible, we source our ingredients from local farmers and fishermen. To make the most of the carefully selected produce, your food is cooked to order and may sometimes take a little longer to be served. We always do our best to serve you as quickly and efficiently as we can.
