Welcome to Cowick Barton

Exeter Devon

It is with great sadness that our pub doors are now closed. Back in 2017 when we arrived in Exeter and opened the Cowick Barton it was our dream to transform the Cowick into something beautiful, something special and unique, and it is with a great sense of achievement we believe we have achieved that dream. 

The Cowick Barton is such a special place for our local community to come to experience wonderful pub food, wonderful service in wonderful surroundings…. Pub heaven. 

We will remain closed until instructed to do so by the government. 
Regrettably we are not currently able to offer takeaway services. 

We are already very much looking forward to welcoming you back when we reopen and when we do, we promise the Cowick Barton will be as beautiful and as special as ever.   

Stay safe everyone,
Lots of love, from our family to yours,
Luke and Louie and all the team here at the Cowick Barton x 

Welcome to the Cowick Barton, Exeter.

A major £350,000 investment has seen the Cowick Barton sympathetically rejuvenated and become a beautiful pub to visit. The history of the building stretches back to 1540 and great care has been taken to retain and repair the original Tudor features such as the magnificent fireplaces and flagstone floors. 

We have redecorated the snug, the restaurant, the bar and the function room. We have kept and restored all the original wooden beams, fixed the chimneys and added a touch of modern design with new furniture and lighting.

We all very much look forward to welcoming you and your loved ones to share some great times and experiences here at the Cowick Barton.

We promise to always do our very best to provide you with great service, delicious food and a fantastic pub experience.

Pub & Dining

The Cowick Barton is run by award winning hospitality professional and chef Luke Davies. Following a 21-year hospitality industry career, training hundreds of publicans and pub chefs across the country, he has moved with his family from North Wales to Devon to put his skills and knowledge to the test in his first solo business venture.

 The Davies family have all had a part to play in the design of the new look Cowick Barton. Will, Charlie-Bob and little Annie quickly decided Dad wasn’t cutting the mustard creating a yummy enough kids menu so they helped out with some great top tips and advice! They’ve been a great help considering Will the eldest is only eleven!
