With the surroundings in a beautiful part of Exeter anything less than 10’s would be sacrilege. Possibly now the best place to eat in Exeter. Couldn’t find a faullt. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had an excellent meal at No.5 over the easter weekend. We were served by a lovely irish female waitress who was very attentive and pleasant. We booked for my sisters birthday which I put on the booking, they bought out a special happy birthday plate with a candle and the restaurant sang happy birthday - much to my 14 year old sisters embarrassment! Food was lovely however menu was a little limited. All in all 5* experience will deffo come again !

The menu was very limited and rather uninspiring. The ‘nibbles’ seemed to be ‘thrown together’ - poor presentation and expensive for what they were. The ‘chargrilling’ of the bread left a burnt after- taste. There was a lot of fat in the steak which was at times inedible. The coffee was nice . The meal itself was expensive and just not enjoyable! The service was good and attentive.

We had a very good evening out with friends. The staff found us a quiet table and adjusted the volume of the music so that we could have a right good chat. The food was good, tasty, well presented and arrived quickly. We will be back.

Loved this new place on the Cathedral Green. Despite the fact that it cured with rain outside the staff did an excellent job of creating a great place to eat. Food is amazing. Love the fact that menu is small, yet everything was so tasty. Will definitely be coming back!

This was such an enjoyable experience and all of the staff were amazing. The food was incredible. All 4 of us had different things from the menu and everything was delicious. Our first trip to No 5 was on their launch day and yes there were teething problems back then but my goodness they have pulled it out of the bag now. Great location too. We will be back
