The Exeter Inn is a destination inn that boasts great kerb appeal on the edge of Exmoor National Park. It’s a thriving, multi-dimensional business, with 7 letting rooms included in its impressive portfolio, but it’s brand should centre on rural charm – whether welcoming walkers and dog owners, families, local residents, tourists or business travellers. This pub should be renowned for its good food, ‘country comfort’ accommodation and old-fashioned hospitality – and the incoming publican will be keen to work alongside the improvements Punch plans to make to deliver an outstanding customer experience.

Dating from the 15th century and with a wealth of historic character, this unique pub offers immense visual appeal throughout. Inside, there’s a traditionally styled main bar and a lounge which offer 50 covers between them, as well as a restaurant/function room which can accommodate a further 50 covers; this comes with its own servery. There’s also a catering kitchen. The pub boasts two working fireplaces, which create a lovely atmosphere in chillier weather. To the upper floor are 7 letting rooms. The pub has WiFi and there are 24 parking spaces. Although there’s no beer garden, there is a clear opportunity to take advantage of the pub’s south-westerly aspect by placing seating to the front; dog kennelling for guests could also be an option as there is space to add these.

The domestic accommodation consists of one bedroom, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.

Punch plans to extend the trade area at the Exeter Inn by bringing a meeting room into everyday use by easing access through a new doorway – this space has a fabulous inglenook fireplace.

The pub is situated just outside Bampton village in central Devon, neatly located beside a roundabout on the A369. This means that passing trade plays a huge part in the pub’s fortunes, as the road carries thousands of holidaymakers and daytrippers to Exmoor National Park.

If you’re driven by a desire to forge a name as a talented host who puts guests at their ease while delivering a top-notch menu and exceptional hospitality, this could be just the enterprise for you.
