If You've Got Time For A Beer Between Trains

by johngayton

I usually have to pass through Exeter on my travels and often have a bit of time to hang waiting for train connections at St Davids station.

There's a couple of bars in the immediate area, including that at the Great Western Hotel, but the one I tend to favour is this one - The Jolly Porter, across the carpark in front of the station. This manages to be both a transit pub and a little local - the St Davids area is almost like a village in its own right. There's usually a friendly welcome, beer prices are reasonable and there is a proper pub atmosphere, assisted by a few characterful locals.

At the moment the pub isn't serving food but once you've had a beer or two pop over the road for an excellent burger from Peeps van (see restaurant tips) before continuing your journey.

UPDATE Dec 2010 - The pub is now host to an excellent new Chinese Restaurant and Takeaway with tasty, reasonably-priced, nosh and run by a friendly Chinese couple - tip to follow on restaurant section.

Cathedral Close

by johngayton

Whilst everyone else is "Oohing and Ahhing" and taking pics of the Cathedral you might find Cathedral Close just as fascinating. This is the ring of buildings around the Cathedral Green and vary from the ornate black and white Bols Coffee house to the understated stone-walled No 10 with its decoratively studded Devon oak doorway.

Here's a few pics and the website below has a few more, along with excellent links for further info on the individual buildings.

Exeter is the principle city in the western county of Devon in England. It's located in a very pretty countryside and is full of historic sites and museums. It is best known though for its beautiful gothic cathedral. It makes for a nice daytrip from London or as a stop during a tour of the western counties.
