Since 2011, Eating Exeter has been reporting and reviewing foodie events and restaurants throughout Exeter & Devon. Six years after the first review was written, the blog is getting a major identity overhaul and a brand new web address to reflect its expanding ambitions.
From the 1st August Eating Exeter will be Eating Exeter, Dining Devon – the new URL will be http://www.diningdevon.com
Co-founded by Chris Gower with his good friend and then work colleague Polly Addison, the team has been beavering away giving impartial reviews to some of Exeter’s best loved restaurants.
The blog was so successful that in February 2016 Chris put a call out for volunteer writers to help out. Through this process South African born Lauren Heath volunteered and has played a vital role in the running of the blog ever since. The blog is now currently run by Lauren and Chris who often attend events and reviews, bringing their loyal readers the best in foodie news.
In 2016 the blog reached the Grand Final of Food Magazine’s Readers Awards, and although not reaching the glory of overall winner this was a crowning achievement for a small blog that concentrated mostly on Exeter and the surrounding area.
We’ve been finding ourselves doing reviews in Salcombe and Barnstaple and as Devon is such a big county and with this increased popularity, it makes sense to encompass our larger audience in the identity of the blog.
There are many great things happening for foodies, with new producers and restaurants opening throughout the year, Eating Exeter, Dining Devon will continue its goal under a new brand that will help appeal to readers across the county.
To celebrate the re-brand Eating Exeter, Dining Devon has partnered with one of the team’s favourite local independent restaurants, Harry’s Restaurant, to bring a lucky winner a fantastic prize.
We are giving away a £150 voucher!, perfect for a dinner for four or more! Head over to the Eating Exeter, Dining Devon Facebook and Twitter pages to find out how to be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize.
