Aqualung . left this review about The Chevalier Inn (Lloyds No.1)

I seem to recall that this one closed recently for a major refurb including the creation of a roof garden which despite there being a lift available I didn't look into. It's set in the middle of the vast Exeter shopping area so on a Thursday afternoon was packed with mainly older folk escaping the shops for something to eat. Despite the refurb it's still a Lloyds as indicated on the external signage. I could see no sign of The Lloyds Disaster Area downstairs, nor any speakers and there was no music playing so I assume the late evening nightmare is confined to upstairs.
I noticed that the Curry Club flyers said £5.65 so went for that only to find they were wrong and the real price was £7.75 as on the menu cards. Rather than risk never getting served here again I went along with it instead of insisting they give me a Curry Club for £5.65. Nevertheless, I'm not sure why they can't just borrow or steal some of the flyers from the other JDW down the road which display £7.75.
The downstairs bar has ten hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom and Bays Gold doubled leaving just Hanlons Stormstay and Otter Amber. I went for the Stormstay (£2.29) which was in good nick.
On the face of it this place is OK for a Lloyds.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Chevalier Inn (Lloyds No.1)

Rather uninspiring outlet with a fairly cramped bar area supplemented by a few tables out on the pavement (and there may be another bar upstairs, but didn't visit this). There were seven different real ales available from the ten handpumps, and once you skipped past the Ruddle's, Abbott and Doom Bar, one was left with a couple of international brews, Cotleigh Snowy (Owl) and Royal Hunt from Hunter's (£2.45).

A two-level JDW, converted in 2009 from an old Hogs Head outlet. Two long sets of semi-booth seating on the lower floor, whilst upstairs offers a less-than-enticing view over the road to the dilapidated BHS department store. Some nice bits of décor and a cut above the generic Spoons-by-numbers. Fancy carpet over both floors, with a bar area on each too. Limited in its range of interesting ales, my Celt Saison was nonetheless in decent nick, even if it was yet another reminder that real ale simply doesn’t work with that peculiar Belgian style. A decent enough JDW though the weakest of the three in Exeter for my money. In another town less well-served by the Mullet Man’s empire, this would work fairly well.
