Couple Reviews:
“The Exeter Inn was an absolute dream to work with! We chose this location for our October wedding because the setting was ideal and the food was outstanding. We didn't want a "cookie cutter" approach to our menu and the chef and staff of The Exeter Inn delivered a foodie's dream; everything from the hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour to the plated meals was delicious, our guests were raving. We paid a very reasonable amount for the location and our wedding consultant was very flexible in letting us use any and all spaces we needed. I emailed with her constantly to iron out details and she was always very responsive and never made me feel like I was being a pain. Total bonus, her time and dedication to our event was at no extra cost, she even frosted our cupcakes we had shipped from out of state. Everyone at The Exeter Inn was helpful, kind and went out of their way to make you feel like #1. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for an intimate, classic New England wedding venue that your guests won't soon forget.” – Amanda

“We couldn't have been happier with our wedding at the Exeter Inn. Everything was absolutely perfect. We were a little nervous at first because we were planning from across the country, but from the moment we first talked to our wedding consultant at the Inn, who is downright magical, all of our anxiety went away and we knew things were going to be great. They were able to accommodate our every request, and any time we thought we'd missed something we'd find out wedding consultant had taken care of it for us.” – Matty

Everything was better than expected at the Exeter Inn. Laura was wonderfully accommodating and quite frankly was an overall amazing person. She was in touch the perfect amount for us. Not overbearing by any means but never letting anything slip or slide out of place. Once the rehearsal day came, it was spot on and everything was better than expected as I mentioned earlier. My entire family loved the inn and the town and were very surprised at how we were able to get such a nice place. Would recommend this to all my friends who are getting married as it was just a wonderful place to be. - Michael
