Plan the perfect date in Exeter

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner what better time to start thinking about a date day or night whether it’s on the 14th or another day, Exeter has some amazing venues to choose from.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s on offer in the city

Dine out

Whether its breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner Exeter has you covered!

You could start the day with pastries & coffee at Chandos or enjoy the calm and tranquillity at Exeter Sacred Grounds over savoury waffles for brunch. If it’s a lunch date why not choose from the eateries in the Queen St dining quarter or spend a leisurely afternoon with your loved one sampling finger sandwiches, scrumptious cakes and maybe even a glass of fizz with stunning views of Exeter Cathedral at Tea on the Green. If you’re thinking dinner head to Hubbox’s new spot on Catherine Street for the perfect burger.

Just don’t forget to book a table!


If cocktails are your thing then sample some of the latest creations and old favourites at Lloyds Lounge, try out some real ale at The Beer Cellar or head to Artigianos for some fizz.


Film buffs are in luck with a choice of venues in the city with the Vue showing the latest blockbusters, The Picture House with their comfy sofas or the intimate and beautifully designed Studio 74 at Exeter Phoenix with its programme of first-rate independent films.


Go on a voyage of discovery around the city and explore some of the top cultural spots including the iconic Exeter Cathedral, the not to be missed RAMM or go below the pavement and find out more about Exeter’s Underground Passages.
