From the outside The Book Cover appears to be a vintage bookshop.... never judge a book by it’s cover! Step inside and you’ll find it’s a completely different story. You’ll be immersed in the nostalgic atmosphere of a bygone era … Our first class bar specialises in creating tantalising cocktails and craft spirits. We house an extensive range of gins ‘new and old’, boutique beers and a great selection of wines from around the world. The Book Cover is a Speakeasy Bar, the perfect venue to indulge in some clandestine sipping in laid back, atmospheric surroundings.

    The evening was good, though I thought it would be more of an experience. There was an entrance lobby but no-one to greet us. There was supposed to be a password to get in, but they’d given up on this. We were told we would be sat in the restaurant, so I was disappointed to be sat at bar stools on a table next to the bar. The food wasnt great eg we ordered chorizo which actually seemed to be German sausage in batter. The drinks however, were amazing. Overall, I was expecting more.

    Amazing place, the decor is beautiful, gorgeous food and cocktails and warm wonderful attentive staff. The perfect cocktail mix for a great evening.

    The meal was adequate a little dull perhaps. The service was well meaning but entirely untrained and amateur, one of our waitresses started clearing away plates whilst we were obviously still eating. The barman didn't know how to make a brandy champagne cocktail, he obligingly tried, but it was foul, {too many bitters} yet we were charged £11.00 for it even after we explained! This is supposed to be 1930's Speakeasy themed, I took the trouble to dress in sympathy with that, the staff however do not, quite the opposite. The photo's on the website are misleading, showing prohibition style dress, even needing a password to gain entry, however, no-one greeted us on our arrival, we had to find our own way. The music was wholly wrong, and on a rather short, unimaginative loop which became irritating quite quickly. The website clearly implies a clandestine "Speakeasy" atmosphere, yet the reality failed to even approach anything near, it's windows are huge and directly next to the pavement, quite inhibiting and not prohibition likely! What is clearly needed here, is a manager, older and more informed, to keep the theme going and train the staff. There is a huge choice of venues in Exeter, people will simply be underwhelmed and go elsewhere. If you are going to be edgy and out there, then be that, honour your website theme, work at it, make a determined effort to operate a joint that gets people talking, take a risk. Rick's Cafe American would be a good place to start. Play Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald music etc. Come on you only live once, assemble a disreputable past while you still can.

    We have been to The bookcover about 4 times now, and really enjoy the whole experience. The Tapas are always served well and very tasty, the cocktails excellent, and the staff friendly and welcoming. Its a great quirky place to go either as a couple or with friends. We went one Friday and there was a table magician, which was good fun. There is always music playing, but it is not so loud you cannot chat, which is a definite plus in my book.

    Amazing food and cocktails. Testing technology before film night would probably help them for the future. Apart from that amazing!

    Great tapas, lovely atmosphere but again the service is shocking. Nothing wrong with the individual staff but nobody is managing them so you get left for ages and they get things wrong. Also, they managed to get the bill wrong again! Shame.
