Private Hire

For special occasions

A Very Special Place

'Our friends still say it was the best food they have ever eaten! The venue is beautiful, it will always be a very special place for us now' - Mr & Mrs Watts


'Our wedding day was more magical than we could have ever dreamed of and without a shadow of a doubt that was down to the hard work of the entire River Exe team.From your patience in our planning meetings to the hard work of the restaurant team on the day, no request was too much and we are honestly so grateful. We’ve lost track of how many times our guests have said it was the best wedding ever! And we are of course biased but we think they’re right!The food was off the scale amazing. We think you might be part wizard!'' Mr & Mrs Fleming 

Something to celebrate?

Our restaurant offers a completely unique floating venue with amazing views and sunsets over the Exe Estuary.  Our events manager will be with you every step of way to help you tailor a private dining event that meets your wants and needs.
