The Turks Head

On the hunt for a top-notch boozer? The Turks Head is a firm choice. This cosy pub is offering punters a fabulous range of eats, from nachos to mouthwatering homemade pizzas, all washed down with some ice-cold brews or classic cocktails. Yum.

The City Gate

If you're looking for the best pubs in Exeter city centre, The City Gate is a cosy boozer boasting bare-brick walls, a real fireplace and intimate lighting. Make your way over to indulge in classic British fare and craft beers.

The Botanist, Exeter

If you're looking for a gorgeous place to wet your whistle, then shimmy on over to The Botanist. This foliage-obsessed space serves a load of signature cocktails alongside wines and beers, which you can also take on its pretty alfresco terrace. Peruse the menu and you'll find the bartender-recommended tipples, like the fruity Garden Mojito and bag any three of the same drink for £22.50.

Rockfish Exeter

Serving tasty and sustainably sourced seafood, it's no wonder why Rockfish Exeter is loved by foodies. With fried local hake and delicate sea bass accompanied with fresh-cut chips, and homemade slaw, this is a great place to tuck into delicious food with a crisp glass of pinot grigio.
