Exeter Picturehouse Bar, 51 Bartholomew Street West

Besides my love of food, the love of film and cinema is the next on my list.  And in my opinion there is nowhere else in Exeter worth going to for cinematic consumption than The Exeter Picturehouse.  Exeter has three main cinemas, and this is the only one where you can get good food and reasonably priced drinks before you go in to the auditorium. … Continue reading Exeter Picturehouse Bar, 51 Bartholomew Street West

The great British roast dinner, something that all residents of this peculiar little island hold close to their hearts, and even the picky eaters among us are catered to with the wide variety of elements which compile this classics dish.

Take a trip to Trip Advisor and you see a worrying consensus. … Continue reading The Malt House (Harvester), St Thomas, Exeter (3/5)

Iberico Ham & Chorizo from Jamonprive – Product Review

Eating Exeter doesn’t often review products, but we were given the opportunity to taste some fantastic meats sent all the way from Barcelona.  I know this as it had Barcelona on the stamp. Iberian Ham is something of a delicacy in Spain, using Iberian Pigs fed primarily on acorns, this gives the meat a distinct taste and coupled with the traditional processes of curing and … Continue reading Iberico Ham & Chorizo from Jamonprive – Product Review

Naked Wines Tasting Event – Exeter University Great Hall 2014

I wanted to start off this post with ‘the thing I love about wine tastings….’ but realised that I have only ever been to one and this one was it.  For the uninitiated, it’s a little like an ale/beer/cider festival except there is a lot less liquid and a lot more talking about the thing being consumed. Some people come and work around methodically, opting … Continue reading Naked Wines Tasting Event – Exeter University Great Hall 2014
