There is nothing worse than getting back to your student home absolutely starving after a long day at University, and discovering you forgot to defrost that chicken, or your pasta is out of date. Every once in a while students need to go somewhere where they can relax, be cooked for, and eat something that isn’t stale beans on toast! Eating out is a necessity and Exeter is crammed full of exciting and quirky restaurants and cafes. From pizza houses to bistro pubs overlooking the water, Exeter really does have it all and most of them come with great student prices, so we’ve compiled for you a list of all the best places to eat out in Exeter.

Tea on the Green is another of Exeter’s unique little cafes, situated right on the door step of the Cathedral Green, overlooking Exeter’s incredible Cathedral. The café is clearly owned by someone who cares about local produce and serves breakfast 7 days a week, ranging from marmite toast all the way to a full English, light lunches, cream teas and lots of delicious cakes. Tea on the Green also boasts the best expresso in town and has plenty of options for people who are gluten free and vegan.  Click here for their website.
