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

A couple of years ago, I started a blog called Beer, Burger and Beyond. I really enjoyed writing this blog, but due to a complete lack of time and the usual ‘life stuff’ getting in the way, I have decided to put it on an indefinite hiatus. The quest to find Burgers and Beer will continue through Eating Exeter, and future Burger Reviews will be … Continue reading Beer, Burger and Beyond: No longer updated
From one end of the meat spectrum (Piper’s Farm Unsmoked Back Bacon) to the supermarket end. Like most foodies I don’t have the luxury of a food budget that stretches to being able to shop at Deli’s and Organic food shops constantly, and for the basic average ‘day-to-day’ stuff myself and my able assistant, who I am luckily enough to be married to, swap between … Continue reading Product Review: Morrison’s ‘Signature’ Pork and Chorizo Burgers 4/5
