Well, there's no way of telling which one is objectively 'better' for English Literature - it depends on what you want from the course. The locations are quite different so that might be an important factor - would you be happy to live in London (Queen Mary) or somewhere a bit quieter (Exeter)?
All have a good 'reputation' for English. Exeter is probably the most competitive to get into, but anywhere for English is going to be quite competitive really. I have a friend at Queen Mary studying English Literature and he is enjoying it very much, their department is interested in modernist literature if that's your thing, but that's not really going to have a massive impact on an undergraduate degree. Have you visisted any of them? Check the sturcture of the course and the types of modules that you can choose in the second and third year - some of them might have modules you're totally uninterested in, so it's best to check these things out as well.
