We stopped for lunch at Lloyds based on the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! Lovely food, attentive staff and a good menu choice. Very good value and we will definitely go back.

One of the best restaurant choices on our recent trip to Exeter. We highly recommend trying Lloyds Kitchen.

First visited just before Christmas, we were passing and decided to try it for lunch. Good choice on menu and specials board. Service was good as was the food. There was often people waiting for a table which shows how popular the restaurant is. We visited again last week when we were in Exeter again. Well worth a visit.

Called in for lunch without reservation and was fortunately able to get table. This was a return visit and was not disappointed. Food is always good and reasonably priced. Staff are always attentive and efficient. My partner chose from specials menu and enjoyed the homemade quiche. Would really recommend this restaurant.

Been meaning to try for ages and excited by good reviews. Finally did go in for midweek breakfast. First impression clean and fresh. Was very quiet in both clientele and atmosphere. Sit where you like. Fine. I personally don't like sitting in window so chose interior table with slippery wood seats. Service prompt. Tea in mug with teabag and spoon.... More

Visited this central well run restaurant a few times for lunch. There are so many good reasons to stop here. It's manager/owner is always on site keeping an eye on everything and ensuring everything runs smoothly. You are always made to feel like a welcome guest and the menu is fresh, light and well priced. The menu too is different... More

We had a fantastic dinner here despite it being very busy with Christmas parties, the food was great and well-presented and the atmosphere was fun. We were asked to give a special mention to Nicole, although there was another chap who also made an effort to make sure we were all Ok but I cant recall his name sorry :-)... More

My wife and I often visit Exeter for shopping and tend to use one of two central restaurants for lunch. This week we had wandered around Cathedral green to see progress on the Royal Clarence restoration and quite by chance happened on Lloyds Kitchen! To be honest we hadn't really noticed it before but as it was empty mid morning... More

Changed a lot since our last visit to Exeter. Bit cramped and food was quite a long time coming, but a very good brunch when it arrived.

Attended Lloyds for a New Years party with friends. Great restaurant stylishly presented and above all clean. Staff are very welcoming, attentive and efficient without being intrusive. Preordered food from decent menu choices. Meal was a good standard and appropriate to the price. Presentation suffered with attempts at being "chefy " but didn't quite manage to pull it off. Food...
