Welcome To The Turf

Overlooking the Exe Estuary and situated in an area of outstanding and protected natural beauty at the end of the historic Exeter Canal,
The Turf provides a wonderful setting where you can relax and enjoy great food and drinks and friendly service from a family run pub.
Clive and Ginny Redfern took over Turf in 1990 and, together with their sons James and Oliver, have continued to renovate and improve this fascinating timber framed slate hung listed building. This is a proper pub. There are no carpets, just pine strip floors making our pub ideal for muddy paws and muddy kids.
Both most welcome!


Outside is a very large beer garden and in summer we run our popular BBQ and Bar.There are also two large ‘cook your own’ BBQ’s with their
own decks available to hire. Ideal for Birthday or Office Parties, Celebrations or just an excuse to get together with friends.
Getting to us is all part of the fun making Turf a true destination pub. You cannot drive to us. Walking, cycling or arriving by boat to our pontoon are the options. Under ‘Location’ you will find a map and links to Cycle/Canoe hire, ferries and details of the Exe Cycle path.
