5 FOOD AND DRINK EXPERIENCES IN EXETER

1. OLD FIREHOUSE

Originally a firehouse in the 19th century- turned into a pub, a 3 story building with fascinating and rusty interiors. A good variety of large square pizzas are served after 9pm, which are just as brilliant as all their other food. The sangria here is quite popular too. Go as early as possible, this place is always busy and getting a place to sit can be a task. Its always worth the wait!
