Coming to Exeter this August is the grand opening of an exciting new dining quarter in the city centre, offering a wealth of extra choice when it comes to eating out in Exeter.
Queen Street is part of the popular Guildhall shopping centre and is located just off Exeter’s busy High Street, and will act as a unique space for new and established restaurants to thrive. The Street is set within the painstaking restored neo-classical façade designed by Charles Fowler, once more bringing purpose and life to the iconic building. The area will also feature three public spaces, including the Market Square which lies at the heart of the destination, and a number of seating areas, as well as regular events such as live entertainment and food markets.
With eight new restaurants to choose from, the new Queen Street area is sure to bring in more people to the city centre both day and night, acting as the perfect stopping place during a day of shopping or as the perfect night spot for socialising with friends and family. Below are the exciting new establishments set to open this August.
