Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings
With its regal Union Jack hung above the entrance, this fabulous institution is one that you just can’t miss. This all-day bar and brasserie has a wonderfully calming atmosphere where diners can immerse themselves in the unique ambiance of the botanical gardens in the greenhouse at the back of the building. The menu is quintessentially British, with dishes ranging from a simple pan-fried seabass to a braised ox cheek served with seared bavette.
Paesan, Exmouth Market
Paesan is your no fuss answer to a hearty Italian meal, with a great wine list to match. The food here is simple, fresh and authentic with dishes inspired by traditional recipes that have been around for years and years. The thing that makes people keep coming back to Paesan though, is the constant buzz in its rustic interior, an ambiance worth indulging in. Don’t forget to check out the underground bar below the restaurant, a favourite spot for the after-work crowd.
