    Excellent food served in a very professional manner at the Exeter Arms.

    Food very good in a nice setting. Disappointing service. No menu without asking. 40 minutes late with table booking with no explanation.

    I decided to book a table at The Exeter Arms for my birthday as it has a charming, rustic vibe that suits me perfectly. The menu had lots of choice which was great as there were four of us dining. I opted for the pork belly with hash browns and vegetables, which was wonderfully cooked and presented. The staff were absolutely delightful and very attentive throughout. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

We say…

Situated in Lincolnshire, The Exeter Arms is part of All Saints Hotels Limited, alongside The White Hart and The Crown Hotel. Although they all have  the same owner, they have their own quirks which keep each of  them from being part of a corporate chain. 

The Exeter Arms was featured in The Good Food Guide 2012, and it isn’t difficult to see why. The restaurant offers an excellent selection of sandwiches, pasta dishes and an a la carte menu, ensuring that guests will be more than satisfied with their dining experience. The open steak sandwich with mixed leaves, wholegrain mustard, onion rings and homemade chips is a favourite with the regulars. 

One of the most appealing aspects of the restaurant is the rustic and home-grown feel it effortlessly presents due to the local produce. It is clear that Michael and  Sue, the siblings who run the business, want their guests to enjoy a true taste of the country with hand-reared lamb, beef and pork, as well as more homely touches such as fresh flowers on every table. Not only does this give every guest a warm welcome, it assures them that the food they are eating are of excellent quality as well as being delicious.

Head Chef Dameon Clarke is known locally for his ventures at Nick’s in Oakham, The Collyweston Slater in Collyweston, Assiette in Stamford and most recently at The Wicked Witch in Ryhall. Whilst Dameon originates from Coalville just over the county border in Leicestershire, his culinary skills and passion or cuisine has taken him around the world gaining experience from some of the top chefs in the world.

Not only does The Exeter Arms provide great food, there is also wonderful scenery to take in. Not only is there a patio for al fresco dining, an orangery has also been recently added and captures the view perfectly. It is available for private dining, but also perfect for a nice view with breakfast. If the orangery is not quite what you are looking for, they also have a Snug which caters for up to 12 people. 

Giving guests a truly rural atmosphere and excellent-quality home-grown food, The Exeter Arms Stamford is a wonderful experience for those looking to enjoy a quiet meal against a country backdrop.
