Located on North Street, two minutes from Guildhall and four minutes from the ancient Exeter Cathedral, The Conservatory has been a key restaurant of Exeter’s history, serving food for over 20 years. With a rustic atmosphere, creamy wooden chairs and white silk cloth bringing together the dining room into a homely, natural space, The Conservatory is a staple of Exeter dining.

The menu at The Conservatory, whilst succinct, captures classic dishes like Cornish Hake fillet and braised blade of beef, adding elements that make the meal more exotic and luxurious such as wild mushroom and butterbean cassoulet. The Conservatory places an emphasis on taking a classic staple of British cuisine such as fish, chicken or beef yet adds its own signature to each dish with new and inventive additions to make the experience The Conservatory special.

The Conservatory also has a range of desserts on offer, with a particular interest in dairy. With the trapping of tradition, panna cotta and chocolate tart are staples of the dessert menu, but The Conservatory also offers more adventurous alternatives such as the Turkish Delight Creme Brulee showing that The Conservatory is not just stuck in the past in terms of British cuisine. Rather, it also has a passion for experimenting and surprising diners with dishes that represent a love of cooking.

The Conservatory also has over 40 wines on offer, with an extensive and well thought out collection, including locally sourced wines such as the crisp white, Pebblebed or the Polgoon Rose which is reminiscent of ‘a palate of ripe summer fruits’. The Conservatory’s extensive knowledge and understanding of the complexity of wine gives customers a unique experience that is bound to bring new flavours and richness to their experience.

The Conservatory acts as a staple of Exeter dining, with a short but varied menu and a knowledge of wine bound to please customers.

A fab little independent restaurant in Exeter City Centre, that never fails to deliver.
