About The Fat Pig Exeter

The Fat Pig is a local gem in Exeter thanks to its delicious offering of hearty European fare and location in the heart of the town. The restaurant has a rustic charm and a homely feel to it, filled with knick-knacks such as wellies filled with fresh flowers and other quirky touches that endear local punters.

The menu, in contrast to the casual feel of the restaurant is a sophisticated take on an eclectic host of influences from Moroccan tagines to traditional gastropub roasts. The team at The Fat Pig are an enthusiastic and passionate bunch who like to get creative with the ingredients – which are locally sourced for nearby farms. Scrumptious dishes on the menu include a smoked pulled pork and apple stuffed into a fluffy brioche bun drizzled with aioli and a creamy wild mushroom and goat’s cheese risotto topped with truffle and fresh rocket.

Desserts are equally as exciting with thyme roast apple served with honeycomb crème fraiche or the exquisitely plated poached mango replete with mango gel, coconut cream, and a dark chocolate crumb. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the visual and actual feasts on offer here, which are jam-packed with delicately paired flavours and given novel twists. The restaurant also offers a smashing cheese platter for patrons who don’t have sweet tooth for afters.

The atmosphere of the pub is friendly and welcoming and it is a great option for punters looking for a dining experience a bit different to the usual pub fare on offer. Plus with its close proximity to the Exeter Picturehouse, it’s a no brainer for post- or pre- movie eats. The Fat Pig is regularly praised by locals for its standout dishes and lovely ambience. The Fat Pig is a great option for casual dining out with friends and family, looking for a great food experience in Exeter.
