Travel Tips for Exeter

Devon's CREAM TEA :-)

by Gillianina

This is the specialty of Devon: tea served with scones, jam and clotted cream.... definitely sinful!!!! But you have to try it if you go to Devon: it's so good!! Walking with my Isca School friends around the city and trying cream teas and iced cappuccinos (with whipped cream) in all

Exeter's Latest Addittion To Its Italian Stable

by johngayton about Strada

After years of being a building site Princesshay became Exeter's brand new shopping centre in late 2007. The area was originally rebuilt in the 1950's as a pedestrianised shopping centre having been severly damaged during the Second World War blitzing of the city. The 50's architecture came under severe criticism then due to its obvious clashing with the historic buildings around the Cathedral and its side streets and the modern reincarnation too has come under contemporary critical fire.

Love it or hate it, the developers have at least attempted to blend the concrete, steel and glass of the buildings into the area by liberal use of wooden pannelling and by highlighting the remains of the old city walls.

One thing that they have succeeded in doing though, is that the centre of the mall is now home to a collection of continental-style cafes which, as soon as the sun comes out, burst out colourfully onto the square.

One such is Strada. This is part of a national chain, but none the worse for that. Those in charge have obviously researched their ingredients and the restaurants offer something that little bit different to the bog-standard. The menu covers the whole range of Italian offerings with sections for antipasti (starters), meat and fish, risotto, pizza and pasta, along with various sides and salads. Some of the dishes are the internationally familiar whilst others are regional local specialities and if it wasn't for the fact that the place is immediately recognisable as a chain, I would have been fooled by the menu into thinking I was eating proper Italian!

Service, certainly here in Exeter, was friendly and informal and my delish little waitress even even made a point of asking whether I would prefer to sit indoors as the early-June weather looked like taking a turn for the worse. Instead I opted for the ashtray! I was looking for a nice simple lunch and the idea of pasta had stuck in my head and then I found this place. Perusing the menu the pasta choices definitely piqued the mental taste buds and so pasta it was. I went for the Orecchiette Salsicca e Broccoli, despite the fact that I had no idea what "Orecchiette" were, nor no idea how to pronounce it. The waitress (obviously well-trained) gave me the correct pronunciation and explained that the type of pasta meant "little ears".

So my "little ears" duly arrived tosssed through with very tasty Mantovana sausage, pancetta and broccoli, all dressed in a chilli butter sauce and finished with good fresh Parmesan. A glass of nicely crisp Pinot Grigot and that was my my nice simple lunch well-sorted!

Exactly what I was looking for and at about 12 quid (including tip) not too pricey either - well recommended!

St. Mary's Steps Church

by KingSeany

St. Mary Steps Church, located in West Street dates back to the 12th Century, and was rebuilt in the 15th Century. It is a red sandstone construction. The original Norman font can still be seen inside. The Matthew the Miller Clock, is located on the South face of the 4-bell tower, and can be seen in the photographs here. It dates to around 1620, and it is interesting to see the figures strike each hour. The seated figure holds a gilded sceptre and wears a helmet. The head nods, and the arms move at each strike of the hour. The two other figures, made of lead are holding hammers that strike the bells, each having a different tone. The figures are thought to have been modelled on Henry the Eighth (seated figure), and two guards, but in fact was named after a local miller who lived his life like clockwork that people who knew him, used him as a human clock!
This is one of the most interesting parts of historic Exeter, with the House that Moved , Tudor Houses of West Street, the 100 Step Stepcote Hill, and the remains of St.Edmunds Church & Medieval Bridge within a few minutes away.
