With an intimate speakeasy vibe, Circa 1924 is an independent seafood and steakhouse that also specialises in creative retro cocktails. 1920's style tweaks can be found throughout, including at the 'bootlegger' bar, while the building itself boasts a stunning exposed beam ceiling.

An inventive selection of the finest seafood and premium steak cuts take pride of place on the Circa 1924 menu. Maldon oysters make for the perfect starter, and come served either natural with red wine vinegar and shallots, or fried with a signature spicy relish. Further seafood treats include Brixham crab bisque, and moules marinière with warm bread. A selection of tender steaks are served, including the Devon-reared, 30-day aged Chateaubriand for 2 people. Steaks can be customised with a selection of homemade sauces, and complemented with sides like skin-on fries, and vegetable tempura.

Creative desserts include deconstructed lemon cheesecake and meringue, and dark chocolate truffle torte with raspberry coulis and sorbet. The Circa 1924 Exeter cocktail menu is truly special, offering unique mixes with exotic additions like Japanese black sugar.

A playful nod to a bygone era, Circa 1924 combines stylish tradition with exciting modern twists. It sits only a 7-minute walk from Exeter Central Rail Station.

    Sadly we were disappointed with the fillet steaks we had. They weren't as tender as we would have liked and priced at £26 (without anything else) they really should be absolutely perfect. We also ordered the petit fours and these were awful, really salty. An expensive disappointing experience.
