Wear Park Restaurant at Exeter Golf and Country Club
Fab water taxi. Dog friendly. AMAZING food and service.
Loved everything from the water taxi to enjoying our meal, lovely staff very friendly, booking again
This was our second visit and the food was as good if not better than our first visit. The weather was also great which made the experience even more enjoyable
Superb in every way. A real treat. Will come again.
A really wonderful experience - fabulous food and a great location. Our table was next to the bar which meant a lot of traffic which slightly ruined the ambiance as lots of empty glasses were stacked next to us and waiting staff coming past and standing next to the table a lot.
Great looking menu, food wasn't cooked too well (scallops over-done, squid batter was under-cooked) however it is only early season for them. Vibe was great plus we were very lucky with weather and sea conditions. Look forward to going again soon.
Lovely from start to finish the taxi ride was part of the experience. Very pricey, it would have been nice to have seen more in the way of just fish grilled / fried with bread just more basic and natural. This is not somewhere you could afford to go very often. Don't be put off by the menu as they have some specials when you get there. Scared to try am alternative to original mussels as they were expensive if you didn't like them. It would be nice to offer a couple of flavours as a "try me" overall a really lovely but very expensive lunch. Staff were fantastic xxx
Yes we would recommend for special,occasion Ambience was good service was reasonable, but having our drinks order incorrect and dirty glass with lipstick on it and white stain on side was off putting. All changed no fuss
The best two things about this place are the taxi ride to it and the atmosphere. The food is somewhat overpriced and some dishes are just ridiculous. The sashimi was a farce, apart from the salmon the rest was simply not sashimi as one would recognize it. The tuna was wrapped in something unreconizable and the mackeral was not prepared properly. The children did however enjoy the salt and pepper squid and one of them enjoyed her burger. That made the day. The Nautical platter was uninspiring and a very bad choice. The brown crab was a disappointment and well over priced. The one new thing we tried was the deep fried fish skins and they were delicious. We will go back of course because we enjoy the whole trip but we will be very careful what we order in future. If you keep it simple and order things like moule to start and basic fish and chips you cant go wrong. The staff are freindly and efficient but its a shame the taxi times are so unflexable even when the barge appears only half full.
We would have liked to have stayed a bit longer.
Wonderful experience from beginning to end - water taxi, service and food all excellent!!
Fabulous birthday lunch with friends the only negative thing was the amount of time allocated for each booking. We would have loved to had a dessert but there was not enough time.
Enjoyed our trip out in boat weather could of been better enjoyed my birthday treat
An absolutely excellent experience. The taxi was on time and an entertaining journey. The welcome onto the cafe, second to none. Service, outstanding and the menu was varied and extremely palatable. Even in mid - April and the start of the season everything was in place and professionally presented. The Exe Cafe is a wonderful addition to the "Devon" experience. Highly recommended, well done to everyone involved in making the event so enjoyable and unforgettable
Absolutely amazing as always. Such a friendly team. The best location for a restaurant on the planet and above all the fish so fresh it was like it had literally jumped straight from the river onto my plate.
It was a great night...we were on the egde of the restaurant far right..it was a litlle chilly.
Still great experience x
Wonderful evening. The food was delicious, staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely experience. Our friends were very impressed and enjoyed themselves immensely. Thank you.
Can't beat the overall enjoyment of this restaurant experience starting with the water taxi passing a basking seal en route, a wonderfully cosy pontoon in the middle of the river, great food with a delightful varied menu and excellent attentive service. Always enjoy going here, should be twice the size !!
We took 4 friends for lunch on Saturday. Usual lovely taxi trip out to the cafe. Our table was ready for us and we were made very welcome. There was a table of about 14 young women opposite to us, who had obviously had a really good time and were very noisy, talking loudly and laughing. We couldn’t hear ourselves speak, but good luck to them. They were having fun, but it was a bit of a relief when they left! We had splendid food, excellent service, including offers to take photos for us. Our friends really enjoyed the experience. We’ll be back, as always!
Lovely food, staff so very helpful and friendly. Great experience, couldn’t fault it.
Absolutely amazing experience fantastic food, friendly fast service! Would highly recommend it
Great food and service. Small issue resolved without hesitation. Slightly noisy on this occasion as there was a large table with several children. (Unusual given the late slot). That said, children's meals looked awesome and I certainly didn’t hear any if them complaining. If dining early in the season, do wrap up. Water taxi was good. Perhaps a quicker boarding would have been nice whilst left shivering on the quayside. We’ll be going again! As long as there is capacity! :-)
A lovely early evening with the sun setting on the river. Warm interior both in temperature and welcome. Would highly recommend it.
We’ve now been twice and it’s been a fantastic experience. Boat trip was great each time. The Staff friendly, food fantastic. Beautiful views. Will be back again!
This was an amazing visit to celebrate my wife's birthday. We extended the invite to two of our friends too who are visiting from Australia - they were blown away.
The food - exceptional
The staff - very attentive
The location - beautiful.
Thank you to all the staff for making my wife's birthday a memorable one!
I will definitely be back very soon.
Excellent lunch with great wine. Will definatley go again and have the clam chowder
Food was brilliant. Rich, tasty and fresh. Service really good. And arriving by boat is a nice novelty.
This place just ticks all the boxes for a great day out. Amazing location, excellent food, relaxed atmosphere, good service and not over priced.
Lovely April evening meal. So fun getting the boat across and seafood was delicious
What a fantastic experience! Would 100% recommend! Perfect timing to see all in daytime and night time! Sees the whole evening through. The food was beautiful. Could not fault at all! Will be back!! :)
The setting is lovely and the food was delicious and not overpriced like I though it would be, considering where you are. The staff were really attentive and friendly. I would definitely go back.
Absolutely fantastic meal with my wife and daughter, really enjoyed the food and it was a lovely setting will definitely be back again.
Absolutely brilliant. Food was amazing, lobster with chili was the best I've tasted. Can't wait to go back
Best venue we’ve ever been to!
Absolutely fabulous, will definitely visit again, loved the whole experience of going over to the restaurant in the puffin taxi, all in all a memorable day and the location is beautiful
Absolutely loved every minute. Great food, great setting and perfect place to celebrate in a different way
We’ve visited the cafe many times since it first opened and it’s always been great
We are so lucky to have The River Exe Cafe floating on the Estuary just down from our house, we have not been disappointed in the many times we have been either for food, just a drink or one of the comedy nights they held!
Thanks Guys and keep up the good work ! Ben
A really unique and memorable experience, great food and friendly staff. Thank you!
I loved this experience; a unique way to dine. We were greeted by a member of staff as we came off the water taxi and promptly shown to our table. The menu was varied and I thoroughly enjoyed the baby squid for starter. All the food was very well presented and the staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this experience.
Lovely lovely lovely. It was just all really great. Lovely food, incredible views and wonderful staff.
