Superb real ales poured straight from the barrel. Farmhouse scrumpy and perry! A remarkably good wine list and a huge selection of spirits. We don’t go in for the usual here.

ROUGH CIDER & PERRY

- West Country's Finest -

West Country’s finest! No visit to the Old Exeter Inn is complete without trying our Rough Cider or Perry. Rough Cider is often known as Scrumpy and is a traditional still drink at room temperature. We serve it from jugs. Perry is made from pears and is delicious. Not easy to come by these days. These are our staples and feature at the Old Exeter Inn all the time. But we usually have more on the blackboards. Check Instagram for the latest.

 

LAMB & SERPENT
Devon, England

Lamb & Serpent is Old Exeter Inn’s very own organic medium-dry Champion Farmhouse cider. A gentle cider with a bite! Produced within a few miles of the Inn, our cider is pressed from over 40 varieties of apples from both ancient and new orchards. This is the Landlord’s favourite cider!

REDDAWAYS MEDIUM
Devon, England
6%

All the way from Chudleigh comes Reddaways medium Farmhouse cider from a blend of traditional apples fermented in oak barrels. Pours slightly hazy pale gold with an aroma of medium sweet apples, light sulphur, caramel and citrus. Medium sweetness and moderate sour. Multi award-winning.

PIGLETS PERRY
Somerset, England

Wines

We thought we’d have a play around with our exceptional wine list and present it a little differently! Wine is about a mood or a journey or a dream. A good wine can take you anywhere! So here’s our list. What mood are you in? Adventurous? Needing a Pick Me Up? Feeling Romantic? Flash? It’s all a bit silly but great fun. And you won’t be disappointed by the vino!

THE SPIRITS

- of the World -

We’re not joking about Spirits of the ‘World’ here! We’ve got hundreds of tipples from countries all over the globe! Guyana, Ireland, the United States of America, Japan, Cuba, Sweden, Yorkshire, South Africa, Israel, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, Wales, France, St Lucia, Poland, Scotland, Spain, Barbados, Trinidad, Russia, Italy, Mexico, Cornwall, Taiwan, India. And not forgetting the Finest. England.

So from Blended and Single Malts to American Rye Whisky & Bourbon, the world’s strongest ‘beer’; six different styles of Gin, Cognac and Moonshine to a bucket load of Rum, Vodka and Liqueurs – you’ll find a feast of wonderful labels to enjoy at any time. We’re busily growing our list and have a target of 750 different bottles. Let’s have some fun as we go!
