During the day 7 days a week our amazing Deck is a stylish and family friendly restaurant in Exmouth. Situated on the first floor of Ocean with a fantastic view of the beach, we serve a range of hot drinks, breakfast and lunch options and use only the finest local ingredients where possible.

THE DECK IS A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AND RELAX AFTER A MORNING STROLL ALONG THE SEA, AND THE SELECTIONS AVAILABLE ON OUR MENUS WILL MAKE IT HARD TO LEAVE! THE RESTAURANT IS ALSO THE PERFECT PLACE TO STOP AND REST AFTER AN EXCITING BOWLING GAME, OR ADVENTUROUS DAY OF SOFT PLAY!

Open from 10am daily we serve our breakfast menu and from 12noon until 5pm we serve our fabulous lunch menu. So whether you're just passing through or you're in the middle of a fun packed day of bowling, SEGA or soft play there’s something for everyone.

What a fantastic late afternoon meal.

Really friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the restaurant and then went out onto the lovely upper decking and looked over Exmouth beach, what a lovely afternoon.
Thank you to everyone

The staff were very friendly, the system was very well organised and the environment was very comfortable, so despite the pandemic we felt safe and relaxed. The food was excellent and the view from the Deck is wonderful. An oasis of calm in this mad world.

No atmosphere at all. Strangest roast meal I’ve ever had although tasty. Roast potato undercooked,only one small one,
Dessert menu a joke who ever heard of a dessert on a Sunday lunch time to be toasted tea cake. Would I go again . No

Hi Nicola, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Perhaps you could elaborate on what the atmosphere was missing for you specifically? We are really glad you found the food tasty but also on our dessert menu was a wonderful Eton Mess, the toasted Teacake is just there on the app because we didn't know where else to put it. Usually we have a wonderful selection of desserts but we have removed them temporarily due to the up and down of hospitality at the moment. Sorry about that.

Steak was awful , not worth of £20 at all, will never get steak there again. Staff were lovely but as I was on a date , I didn't want to spoil it by talking to the manager. I told the staff

Booking very good, table ready when we arrived. Online ordering works really well and timely.
My fish and chips had far too much batter and not enough fish, the Ceasar salad had too many croutons but overall was enjoyable. Great venue with great views.

Soon you will need a Smart phone to choose from a small menu - apparently no other way to order. The app did not work on my phone this time. The view is good, but the food and atmosphere were ordinary at best.

Hi Mermaid, Thank you for your review. It isn't factually correct, we are more than happy to do table service for our guests who need it. We are only asking guests to use the web based ordering whilst there is such a huge emphasis on hospitality to ensure we are socially distanced.

We went for my partners birthday breakfast. The service is excellent and very well organised with Covid security. You order everything on line and pay at that time so it’s fully waitress service, so you need a smart phone and QR code reader. Very good food and coffee and atmosphere. The staff are very helpful. I would recommend it. Also a very good view of the sea.

We had a lovely relaxing lunch with stunning views, the food was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and service good except for the fact our plates were not cleared once we had finished our meal. We sat there chatting and finishing our drinks with our dirty plates in front of us for quite awhile. We might of ordered dessert or more drinks if this wasnt the case.
