The Premier Inn apart, this is probably the only possibility to get breakfast in what is basically an industrial estate on the outskirts of Exeter. It definitely caters to workers and business people who have to be there in the first place, yet it is...More

Decided to call in here while the delegates were in other sessions. The food was described as locally sourced so decided to give breakfast a go. The food was of a reasonable quality and not the low cost rubbish you’d get at other venues. But...More

I was expecting a basic cafe and instead found delicious food, lovely and clean environment and helpful staff. I had the chicken and brie jacket potato and looooved it. Oh, and a blueberry muffin yum! Highly recommend this place!

Yet again, enjoyed the friendly service and especially the pudding!!! In the absence of vanilla ice-cream I opted for lemon sorbet with the banana and caramel sauce. This should also be a regular on their creative menu 😊

HI there is a changing table in the ladies, however you'll need to bring your own mat. There is free parking, and seating outside. You cannot bring your dogs into the restaurant though.
