Granny Gothards Ice Cream Parlour opens in Budleigh Salterton by Sue Stoneman

I was on my way to meet a friend at her beach hut last week and my walk took me past Granny Gothards Ice Cream Parlour which is right near the traffic lights on the right hand side as you enter into Budleigh Salterton from Exmouth.  I had seen the shop being refitted on my recent visits to the lovely Earls opposite, and I was … Continue reading Granny Gothards Ice Cream Parlour opens in Budleigh Salterton by Sue Stoneman

Stylish Scandi Picnics with KuPP

With spring upon us and summer following shortly behind, we’ll be (predictably) heading for the hills to soak up the sun on heaths, parks, lidos and just about anywhere else we can find to enjoy a spot of sunbathing, drinking and picnicking. Following last year’s success, KuPP, the Scandi-inspired all day casual dining restaurant, bar and café, is re-launching their grab & go picnic bags, … Continue reading Stylish Scandi Picnics with KuPP

Cuba Cantina, Gandy Street -by Lauren Heath

15 Gandy Street, Exeter, EX4 3LS. Tel: 01392 425200  https://www.facebook.com/cubacantina/ Considering I work 3 doors down from this new foodie venture, I’m not quite sure why it’s taken me this long to eat in there.  I have had a few nosey’s, and walking past it every lunch time I’m pleased to say others have happily wandered in more easily. Perhaps it is because I lunch alone … Continue reading Cuba Cantina, Gandy Street -by Lauren Heath

Byron Hamburgers, Princesshay, Exeter.

It was now a few months ago that I saw a tweet somewhere in the twitter-sphere that said Byron Hamburgers were arriving in Exeter.  And what was the first thought I had?  BYRON ARE COMING TO EXETER!   So I was quite happy about this, but I had a few reservations given we already have a number of very nice burger restaurants in Exeter already. First impressions of … Continue reading Byron Hamburgers, Princesshay, Exeter.

The HubBox, 183 Sidwell Street

You could be forgiven that taking your first steps in to Exeter’s newest Burger joint, would be accompanied by signing in and finding a hard hat from the site manager’s office. But this fully functioning slice of New York inspired industrial chic has a quirky-vintage twang which needs to be appreciated as part of what makes The HubBox a completely unique establishment in Exeter.  I … Continue reading The HubBox, 183 Sidwell Street

Cafe Central, Exeter Central, Queen Street, Exeter

I always get excited when new cafes open in Exeter, don’t get me wrong though I am not completely obsessed with cafes (although I wonder if EE is getting a bit cafe-centric sometimes?!) but it fills me with a little glow I see a newly refurbished interior and a new name popping up in a place which used to be something else. So my excitement … Continue reading Cafe Central, Exeter Central, Queen Street, Exeter

Inferno Stir Through Pasta – (Tomato and Mozzarella)

Originally posted on Veget8:
This is most probably the most extreme dish you will ever come  across.  OK, it might actually be mild compared to some mexican  recipes and in the grand scheme of things, actually eating fire    would be hotter and more deadly. But it’s hot.   It’s also very garlicky, the sort of quatities of garlic  involved would stun a man at 100 yards… Continue reading Inferno Stir Through Pasta – (Tomato and Mozzarella)

Haldon Forest Diner, Haldon Hill, A38 4/5

I love the way that food is so strongly linked to memories. For me, it has the same effect as smell and can mentally regress you to a time when life was good, with no bills to pay, major life changing things yet to come and your whole existence just waiting for you. Oddly enough this rather dramatic thought, especially for a humble foodblog like … Continue reading Haldon Forest Diner, Haldon Hill, A38 4/5

Express Review: Subway Breakfast Sub £2

It sounded so promising and looked so delicious as they always do on the boards outside.  For £2 you get a Bacon Sub and a cup of Coffee, or a hot drink of your choosing.  And for one who is coming up to the poor-end of payday, it seemed like a value option that was worth a try. In my many years of eating terrible … Continue reading Express Review: Subway Breakfast Sub £2

Daily Chef, 3 Angel Terrace, Tiverton – Special Dispatch

Tiverton is not known for its Chinese Restaurants.  The only descent Chinese Restaurant in Tiverton is the Golden Panda I have been told.  Then there is The Orient and China Xpress on Distribution Road, and really the choice stops there.  We were coming back from a tiring day, and the best thing you can eat on a Saturday night after any tiring day is Chinese, … Continue reading Daily Chef, 3 Angel Terrace, Tiverton – Special Dispatch

Special Dispatch: Scoff’s, Paignton (4/5)

Paignton has a strange attraction, it is a splat in between the sizable populous mass of Torquay to the north and the beautiful harbour of Brixham.  There are a few words that you could use to describe Paignton, and depending on who you ask will depend what sort of words they end up being.  True, the town has its problems and suffers from a lack of investment … Continue reading Special Dispatch: Scoff’s, Paignton (4/5)

Ruby Burgers, Exeter – Press Night 25th January

A couple of months ago, I received a bit of an unusual tweet.  It was from the owners of Ruby Burgers inviting me to a press night at their lovely looking establishment that has just opened their doors, on Queen St in Exeter.  It was nice that they were holding such a night in the first place (to be honest why would they not?) but … Continue reading Ruby Burgers, Exeter – Press Night 25th January
