The Nobody Inn, Doddiscombleigh, Exeter

In all honesty, I’m not usually one for pub grub. I’m not being snooty or fussy, I’ve just experienced my fair share of bland and boring pub meals, not to mention the microwaved plates of yellow they serve at Weatherspoons’.  However after years of snubbing pub food, a trip to The Nobody Inn in Doddiscombleigh last week opened my eyes to the world fantastic foodie … Continue reading The Nobody Inn, Doddiscombleigh, Exeter

The Jasmine Thai Restaurant, 153 Fore Street

I’ve been meaning to write a review about Jasmine’s Thai restaurant since I first visited in April, so when I made my third visit last week I knew I had to find time to rave about it. A little out of the city centre, tucked away on South Street, you wouldn’t think much of this Asian eatery from the outside, with a simple exterior and … Continue reading The Jasmine Thai Restaurant, 153 Fore Street

Toby Carvery, Digby, Exeter – (2/5)

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. It became apparent that this strange connection that the British have to the good old roast intensifies at university, and the home cooked roast dinner … Continue reading Toby Carvery, Digby, Exeter – (2/5)

Boston Tea Party, 84 Queen St

I absolutely love going out for brunch, I don’t know why but I find it so much more exciting than any other meal out! It’s probably because most of the time I use the term brunch as an excuse to have a dessert as a main meal, pancakes at 6pm… “it’s fine it’s brunch!” So when I met my boyfriend Jack in town on a sunny Sunday in … Continue reading Boston Tea Party, 84 Queen St

The Magdalen Chapter, Magdalen Road

Being a student means that I don’t often have the chance to visit fine dining restaurants, not just due to the high prices but as the vast majority of my friends are also students, the opportunity doesn’t pass me by all too often. So when I was invited to lunch at The Magdalen Chapter, one of Exeter’s most exclusive restaurants, for an old work friends … Continue reading The Magdalen Chapter, Magdalen Road

The Old Firehouse, 50 New North Road

Tucked away in the corner of the city centre, sandwiched between two looming grey office blocks, is The Old Firehouse, Exeter’s own little secret garden. Walking through the flowered arched entrance you could be stepping back in time into the bustling beer garden, if it wasn’t for the fairy lights dotted around the walls. One of my favourite places to visit when back home in … Continue reading The Old Firehouse, 50 New North Road
