The Exeter Arms, Barrowden

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

A great country pub inside for the colder months with a roaring fire or in the summer enjoy our enormous gardens totalling over one and a half acres. During the colder months, we are limited to the small space our fabulous old pub has to offer, so reservations are essential. During the summer it’s all about being outside, and wow! what a fantastic pub garden awaits. Outside there are two options for dining, our more formal dining at the outside Barn Terrace Restaurant with soft lighting, overhead heating and full table service dining, reservations essential, or simply turn up with no need to book and take a seat anywhere in the garden for our relaxed self serve “garden express” menu which features a wide choice of lighter meals (samples of both menus are listed on this web site, additional market daily specials also supplement the menu).

The ever-popular outside bar is open all day during the summer months. The garden area has seating for over 200 in total, so if it’s a drink in the sun or a bite from our express menu there is no need to make a reservation. Check out our events page for dates of live music in the garden.

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

Booking is essential for indoor dining during the Autumn, Winter, Spring and during the Summer at our outside formal dining restaurant on the Barn Terrace. 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 Exeter Arms Barrowden
