Was warmly welcomed and shown to my table. The place looks really cool and has the biggest spirit collection in Exmouth. The waitress was happy and polite and gave us as much time as we needed to choose our food. I ordered Calamari Rings which were absolutely huge and unfortunately made me too full so I didn't manage to eat... More

Probably my favourite place to eat in Exmouth. Anything you order is so tasty and can tell is made to order and with love. Nothing is too much to ask, the staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is great. The music is a little loud at times and you can't really hold much of a conversation but that can... More

This place could very well be different at the weekends, but was quite empty for an early Friday evening. Beer selection isn't all that, but the spirits on offer is staggering; very impressive display behind the bar. Oh, and some of the seats resemble old cinema seating, complete with push down seats, and they are bolted together and to the... More

I was initially intrigued by the concept of Spoken in Exmouth. A rustic chic American cafe bar cum restaurant just off the town square. The reality is somewhat different. I came away thinking it was a poorly organised glorified greasy spoon. True American dinners are characterised by milkshakes, pancakes with bacon and great service. Spoken gets the food right, but...

Very lively bar with plenty of choice for alcohol, good atmosphere and seemed the buzzing place in Exmouth Saturday night, not from the town so headed here as seemed busy and it was very good. Menu looked good too but didn't eat as anything.

Have passed this place a few times and a couple of weeks ago ventured in for a coffee, it was very nice and the menu looked good but we had already eaten that day. Went back a few days ago and had their English breakfast (they also do American breakfasts) lovely local sausages and bacon, cooked how you like and... More

Called in on a whim having decided to be too lazy to cook when we got home. Likes: Quirky and friendly environment. Very welcoming and friendly service. Interesting and varied menu. Enjoyed the varied choice of music set loud enough to hear properly and not too loud to talk - just right. Tasty food and a very excellent chardonnay by... More

Great addition to exmouth if you ask me! Quirky American diner feel with jumbled up funky furniture and lots of nick nacks! Fab drinks range and modern twist on food! Lovely menu which entices you to try something out of the ordinary! Friendly bar men working today, table service which is nice too! Will definitely be back! Thank you!

Thank beth p

Spoken is not a spirits bar, a cocktail bar, a cafe or a restaurant - it's a fusion of the whole lot! Oh and it's a gastro bar! We are whatever you want us to be! We have one of the largest selections of vodkas in the UK erectly standing at 186 vodkas, 160 gins, 90 rums and a whole lot more! We offer a American street food to a high standard. We have the loveliest and friendliest teams for miles and a comfortable and trendy atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you soon...
