Highbullen Hotel, Golf & Country Club: Part 1

In the life of a food blogger, the chance to go outside of the box is rare.  But recently we were given the opportunity to visit one of Devon’s most luxurious destinations to experience what happens between the walls and hedges at The Highbullen Hotel, Golf & Country Club at Chittlehamholt in North Devon. The hotel is steadily becoming one of the top destinations in North Devon and its easy … Continue reading Highbullen Hotel, Golf & Country Club: Part 1

The ODDfellows, 60 New North Road

It seems like Burgers are becoming as much a part of the staple traditional British menu as Roast Dinners, Fish & Chips and Ham, Egg & Chips. Exeter has seen three new burger restaurants appear in the last two years, burgers are now a given part of menus in many pubs and restaurants and even the editor of this blog has managed to succumb to … Continue reading The ODDfellows, 60 New North Road

Beer, Burger and Beyond: The latest addition to our blog family.

Over the last few months you might have noticed that I’ve started writing more about local ales, craft beer and burgers on Eating Exeter.  A quick flick through Instagram and Twitter, makes me feel like I’m turning in to some sort of Beer-o-holic! Last week you might have noticed that the Eating Exeter twitter feed mentioned Beer, Burger and Beyond a new blog that I … Continue reading Beer, Burger and Beyond: The latest addition to our blog family.

Philly Cheese Steak sandwich

Popped through Exeter Street Food Market (located in the Guildhall Shopping Centre) at lunchtime and treated myself to a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. Minus the added Jalapenos, the size of the sandwich took me by surprise in the best way possible. For £4.50, you see the whole process right before your eyes. The way the steak was cooked, the chips frying (yes there are a … Continue reading Philly Cheese Steak sandwich

Today I Learned (TIL) about the Hidden Treasure Tearoom in New Bridge St. Exeter

I feel a little ashamed of myself because I actually missed this completely.  But a new little tea room appeared at the bottom of Fore St. (where it turns in to New Bridge St.) opening last year.  It has a distinct vintage theme, and is bookable for private parties too. The Hidden Treasure Tearoom looks like a fabulous addition to the amazing selection of places … Continue reading Today I Learned (TIL) about the Hidden Treasure Tearoom in New Bridge St. Exeter

The Cosy Club, 1 Southernhay Gardens, Exeter, EX1 1SG

Set in the magnificent surroundings of the old Dean Clarke Hospital’s Halford Wing in Southernhay, The Cosy Club opened last year (April 2013) to what seemed to be a quiet fanfare.  Ever since it opened, I have heard rumours of the amazing interior, walls adorned and festooned with bits and pieces, and some absolute killer cocktails.  Unfortunately, it being a school night and all, I wasn’t able … Continue reading The Cosy Club, 1 Southernhay Gardens, Exeter, EX1 1SG

Cafe At 36, Cowick Street, Exeter.

Cowick Street is frankly the wrong side of the river. I used to live in Farm Hill many years ago and although the views were lovely, the overriding sense that I had was that it wasn’t on the right side.  Is there a right and wrong side? If so, what makes it right and/or wrong? Such great philosophical debates are not in the realms of … Continue reading Cafe At 36, Cowick Street, 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

Artigiano, High St. Exeter

248 High Street, Exeter, EX4 3PZ ¦ Follow on Twitter On the other end of the scale, miles away from Cafe Central (see previous article) is another new opening in Exeter.  Artigiano is a direct import from London, and has brought a bit of coffee sophistication to the High St.  Right opposite Starbucks (haha).

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

The highlight for me at … Continue reading Camper Coffee Company: Coffee with wheels
