Foodie Fundraising Feast by Lauren Heath

Recently the wonderfully charming Andy Cooper, Editor of Devon Life magazine, lost his darling Zena warrior princess to that awful disease Cancer. Obviously nothing can bring her back or heal the wound fully but as in life one must find the good within the bad. So apart from deciding to run the Taunton half marathon… Continue reading Foodie Fundraising Feast by Lauren Heath

Eating Exeter visits the Crediton Coffee Company by Chris Gower

Our part of the world is full of fantastic artisan producers who are all doing fabulous things with food and drink.  I live on the north-west side of Exeter, in fact it is easier to go shopping in Crediton than trudge across the city in search of a supermarket. But when we're not food shopping… Continue reading Eating Exeter visits the Crediton Coffee Company by Chris Gower

Cote Brasserie, Cathedral Green

August 20th is our anniversary and this was the opportunity to go somewhere that had been recommended to us by more than one person. It definitely has a few fans by having a look at the feedback on Google and Facebook, including Latoyah at Sugar Pink Food. Cote Brasserie sits on the Exeter's historic Cathedral… Continue reading Cote Brasserie, Cathedral Green

The TABAC Taphouse, Queen Street

In the 'real world' my job requires me to work opposite Exeter Central at the large unnamed successful award winning educational institution that lies opposite the station, so The TABAC wasn't a huge surprise for me as I watched with sadness as Whistle Wines became an 'online only' company. But was delighted to hear that… Continue reading The TABAC Taphouse, Queen Street

‘Eating Exeter Recommends’ – a new rating system for Eating Exeter

Generally speaking most 'reviews' you read will have some sort of rating system, and since starting this blog I have been keen to look beyond the 'out-of-five' rating syem that I started off with.  I have tried not rating anything, but I feel this then negates the fact its a blog that reviews restaurants and… Continue reading ‘Eating Exeter Recommends’ – a new rating system for Eating Exeter

Beer, Burger and Beyond: No longer updated

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 reading Beer, Burger and Beyond: No longer updated

Eating Exeter Update – June 2015

At the beginning of the year I said to myself "I must try and do other things other than Eating Exeter..." and I can safely say that like most new year pledges, that has gone firmly out of the window.  June is shaping up to be a busy month on the blog, but it certainly… Continue reading Eating Exeter Update – June 2015

So today marked a little milestone in the history of Eating Exeter.  We hit 100,000 views!  Its taken 3 years or so to get here, and for a blog that started as an idea three years ago between myself and Polly over a glass of wine, I think this is quite impressive. Thanks to everyone… Continue reading 100,000 views – Thank you!
