About The Barn Owl

The Barn Owl in Exeter is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

A little pub history

The Barn Owl has been built from reclaimed materials salvaged from older buildings, creating a distinctive & unique setting in which to eat and drink. We sit on the area that was the ancient district of The Wonford Hundred, an area with a long history of agricultural and handicraft.

Make a day of it

Set on the outskirts of Exeter, The Barn Owl is well placed for exploring the local attractions. The city centre has been designated as an Area of Archaeological Importance. There are 15 conservation areas and over 1600 listed buildings.
