Set in a stunning Grade II listed Italianate mansion, the Woodbridge Restaurant is a go-to destination for classy fine dining in Exeter. With its close proximity to the University, it is excellently well-located and is a great option for well-deserved meals out after exams, parent visits, and fancy occasions. Plus it helps that the restaurant has its own free car park, which many don’t realise.
The building the restaurant is set within is Reed Hall, a fantastic venue in itself which dates back to 1867, and is considered one of the University’s most beautiful spaces. The restaurants offers stunning views of the landscaped gardens that surround the site, and on warmer days punters can sit outside and enjoy 300 acres of Italian-inspired greenery.
The interiors of the restaurant are truly stunning, making dining at the Woodbridge an excellent option for treating loved ones and impressing dates. It’s well worth coming by to take in the stunning views too, while the major draw is the outstanding service and food on offer.
The restaurant is well-known for its high quality food, thanks to its passionate kitchen team and great relationships with local producers. The Woodbridge offers three course meals and a la carte options, with a seasonally changing offering on the menus. There is also a salad bar in addition to the servery, where patrons can feast on a variety of cold meats, fish, and salads.
For more substantial meals, punters may expect the likes of spiced breaded pork escalope with a plum and apple chutney and a brandy jus or Szechuan beef with egg noodles. The range of influences is diverse, as the restaurants offers pan-Asian, Indian, European, traditional British, and more dishes throughout the week. The desserts are not to be missed either, and are freshly made in-house each day.
