In previous posts on this blog, I’ve extolled my love for Torquay and the rabbit warren of roads and streets that entangle the surrounding villages into the large urban conglomerate that is Torbay. There is an eclectic range of independent restaurants, funny little shops, and a really vibrant dining scene. Two Exeter favourites – Meat 59 and Brody’s – started off in Torquay both graduating … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Fat Cow Burgers, Torquay by Chris Gower
“Another burger restaurant?? We already have plenty in the city” was the main reaction I noticed on social media when Meat59’s opening was announced. I too, thought very similar, even wondering why they chose Magdalen Road as their home. Those who know Meat59 by their reputation at their Torquay branch rejoiced, a foodie contact of mine who had been a few times gave rave reviews… … Continue reading Burger Heaven at Meat59 – by Lauren Heath

RIP Burgerfest. Your existence in Exeter was short lived. Your burgers were nice, but your secret recipe was not overly transparent. Your Sega room was liked, your ping pong table was novel but ultimately the demise of your parent company meant your service was short lived. Although your value was great, your burgers were chargrilled, your beer kegs were terribly harsh on my sensitive derrier. … Continue reading Zita’s, Bartholomew Street

The great and the good of Exeter gathered to drink the nice beer & wine and eat samples of sliders that were coming from the kitchen. The consensus … Continue reading Ruby Modern Diner: The new menu

Whilst there, I really really wanted a burger and at the time couldn’t quite bring myself to hit the brand new Smoke Shack … Continue reading Urban Burger, Queen St

Well Friday saw me on my travels eastward again and this seemed to be the opportune place to stop … Continue reading Route Restaurant 303, A303 Yarcombe, Devon
The village of Bickleigh. It is geographically almost slap bang in the middle of Devon and sits on the River Exe like it has done since before the Domesday Book. Mentioned in that classic tome as Bicca’s Meadow – I wonder if Mr Bicca could ever have imagined Bickleigh being the destination that it has become now. In foodie circles, Bickleigh Mill has always been … Continue reading Bickleigh Mill: The Bistro Restaurant & Bar – Sliders Night
