The Exeter Arms, Barrowden

The Exeter Arms, a beautiful pub set in an area of outstanding natural beauty!

In summer and fine weather enjoy our enormous gardens and outside terrace Bar & Kitchen. Our Gardens total over one and a half acres and have been recently beautifully landscaped. The outside bar is open most evenings and weekends (weather dependant) and provides a great place to meet with friends especially during covid 19 indoor restrictions. We can accommodate over 140 people with excellent social distancing space outside.

Inside, the Exeter Arms had a complete makeover in March and features a new stone floor, redecoration and furniture finished with genuine Harris tweed and sumptuous leather and during the winter months the log fire awaits.

Booking is essential for indoor dining as numbers are severely restricted due to current restrictions. Our inside and outside bars normally offer at least three cask ales, lagers and ciders. Menus change daily and always feature fresh local produce, we have given some example menus on this site.

We look forward to welcoming you to the “New Exeter Arms”
