Fodor's Review

Here you can lift a tankard of stout in the very rooms where Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh enjoyed their ale. Drake, in fact, once wrote, "Next to mine own shippe, I do most love that old ‘Shippe' in Exon." The pub dishes out casual bar fare, from curries to beef and ale pie, either in the bar or in the beamed and paneled upstairs restaurant.
