Amazing food and service, top quality, even allowed my father to come in through a side door to avoid some small steps. Will definitely visit here again!

One of Exeter’s longest-standing and most renowned restaurants, The Conservatory building dates back to 1600, and boasts an original, restored Tudor panel wall in the dining room. The menu fuses using classic English cuisine with an innovative Mediterranean influence, resulting in imaginative, modern European fare.
Seared scallops with blood orange and bok choi and Cornish crab arancini with apple salsa exemplify the restaurant’s quirky take on favourite dishes. Hearty dishes such as braised blade of beef with swede and smoked cheddar gratin are just as popular.
Iced peanut butter parfait with dark chocolate ganache and banana curd is a must-try dessert on The Conservatory menu. Early bird and express lunch menus are readily available, alongside a substantial wine list. Award-winning, local organic ales can also be sipped alongside the food.
True to its name, The Conservatory in Exeter boasts light and airy surroundings, creating a bright, relaxed setting. With Exeter Cathedral on its doorstep, The Conservatory is found just a 6-minute walk away from Exeter Train Station.

Customer reviews for The Conservatory

I think the conservatory is a brilliant restaurant. It is the best in exeter by far. It deserves a Michelin star in my opinion.

Another brilliant evening

Was expecting a more Michelin star experience or at least fine dining from the website. Venue small and very limited up staircases, food disappointing..

We always enjoy our dinners at The Conservatory. We like the Hake and the Asparsgus starter on Saturday night was amazing. The food is consistently good. The fact that you are brought bread and olives to nibble while you contemplate your dinner is a nice touch. The staff are very pleasant and obliging and the atmosphere is peaceful and unhurried. Cannot really fault The Conservatory.

Lovely restaurant with consistently good food, well cooked and presented. Good wine list and varied choice on the menu; set menu is a bargain!
((((( 2 June 2018 by Foodie53 from London
Excellent food beautifully cooked and served; the 'early bird' menu represents great value and we enjoyed all of the dishes. A super wine list with lots of choice, including a selection of really good house wines.

Always a great bet when in Exeter ...the overall experience is such that it's scarcely worth looking elsewhere. Good value into the bargain especially pre-theatre.
