We had our wedding and reception at the Exeter Inn.  The servers and bar servers were wonderful, efficient and really personable. The Inn staff set the venue up with small intimate tables and comfortable chairs, as well as standing tables, etc. Everyone worked well with the people I had decorating. The food we selected was excellent, complements to the chef and all who assisted. The food cost does add up, but the quality is worth the cost. We had to move our ceremony inside and though we fit everyone in, I wish there had been more chairs available during the ceremony. Many people had to stand and that made it so everyone could not see. What they had was perfect for the reception. We loved having our wedding and reception at the inn and are very grateful for how well staff worked with us and our guests.


The Exeter Inn is the most amazing place to have a wedding. Laura was always quick to respond to all of my questions, and was very helpful when the original sales director left suddenly. Everyone had been raving about the understated beauty of the venue and the food. Most of my guests cannot stop talking about the pumpkin ravioli and the steak...oh the steak!!!

Lovely venue with great staff! My daughters wedding was held in the garden and the reception was held inside.

Our wedding was fantastic. Laura was outstanding and was extremely accommodating. The setting and food were both great.

The staff at the Inn were extremely nice and professional throughout my stay. Each person went out of their way to make sure myself and my guests had everything they needed. I can't say enough good things about the Exeter Inn. The pace was beautiful and extremely clean.


My guests are still talking about the Exeter Inn experience and the food that we served! The staff was amazing and I didn't have to worry about a thing!!!!


Many guests stayed at the Inn that evening and we enjoyed a fabulous brunch the next day in Epoch. The staff was phenomenal from the servers in the restaurant to the front desk reception. The Exeter Inn was a perfect choice for our wedding! I would recommend it to anyone!


I just wanted to drop a quick note before Nick and I board our plane to say thank you for all your help, attention to detail, excitement and support during this whole journey. Nick and I are were so impressed with the hospitality everyone showed us and our guests. Everything was beautiful, comfortable and the food was outstanding. Thank you for giving our families a place to come together to relax, celebrate and be married. The Exeter Inn will forever have a special place in our hearts and the rest of the Plourde/Allard family's heart as well. 

Mr. and Mrs. Allard
