Breakfast at Harry’s Restaurant

86 Longbrook St, Exeter EX4 6AP  Tel: 01392 202234  Twitter:@HarrysExeter I don’t get out much.  For someone that writes a food blog, you’d think that I spend my days frequenting fine restaurants and hob-nobbing with the fooderati of Devon, but unfortunately I pay my bills, not via writing, but through a standard job that pays wages. It has nothing to do with food and given I … Continue reading Breakfast at Harry’s Restaurant

Waffles at The Glorious Art House Cafe

You might remember a few months ago, I reviewed a new cafe that had opened in Fore Street. That cafe was called The Glorious Art House Cafe, a bohemian paradise that brought together fantastic coffee and art via their 2nd floor gallery which has regular exhibitions of local artist’s work. They’ve had a tweak and a shuffle of their menu.  Printed on recycled material, I … Continue reading Waffles at The Glorious Art House Cafe

The Nutwell Lodge Hotel, Lympstone by Chris Gower (UPDATE 2018: now a Toby Carvery)

I don’t normally do ‘lucky dip dining’ as I call it.  Find a place, look at the menu and go in. Don’t research, don’t investigate or go online and have a look at reviews or anything.  Just have a go.  It can sometimes be fun to see what happens but sometimes it can lead to trouble. But on the knowledge that I had been here … Continue reading The Nutwell Lodge Hotel, Lympstone by Chris Gower (UPDATE 2018: now a Toby Carvery)

The Beach Cafe, Dawlish

Eating Exeter welcomes Dr Steve Price to team as an official contributor! There are some days when you wake up in the morning and you just have the urge for a good fry up and Wednesday was one of those days. So with nothing in the fridge and the major advantage of living in a seaside town, daughter and I headed off in search of … Continue reading The Beach Cafe, Dawlish

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

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

The Farmer’s Union, Clock Tower

Sundays are usually the worst time to even consider going out for food, especially if you are as anti-social as I am.. It is normally the same time that everyone else tries to go out, and as a result you end up having to fight for tables and waitress attention, moreso, than any other time of the week. But this day was different.  We were … Continue reading The Farmer’s Union, Clock Tower
