On the junction of Verney Street and Summerland Street in Exeter is a Chinese restaurant that serves traditional roast duck, pork and char siew with noodles or rice and Dim Sum. On our way back from Cornwall on a Sunday afternoon, we decided to stop there for lunch.
Our favourites at the fried chicken outlet is not so much the wraps, sandwiches or milkshakes but what the restaurant is founded upon, chicken tenders and wings.
Housed in The Godolphin hotel, occupying what is essentially the main building, the Shutters Restaurant not only offers great food but an amazing view.
The last time we were here at The Copper Spoon, it was before the pandemic. We had our first taste of their layered Cinnamon Roll. It was so amazing, we even tried to make it ourselves. Two years later, we are back again for more.
The wide paved Mountbatten Breakwater with tower at the end is a favourite spot for fishing. It is also a great place to enjoy views of Plymouth Sound including the Royal Citadel and Smeaton’s Tower.
A popular destination for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, The Bridge restaurant enjoys view of the Yacht Haven Marina and is open to the public. The restaurant offers modern European and British food with a casual waterside dining experience.
Quiet and calm are the words to describe the Mount Batten Beach in Plymouth. Given its secluded location, this isn’t the beach of choice for travellers and visitors. Even during peak seasons, the place is relatively quiet, frequented only by the locals and those in the know, and thankfully, not too many of them.
Overlooking Heybrook Bay to the left and Westlake Bay to the right, Renney Point is a hidden and secluded spot that yields breath-taking views over both bays as far as Plymouth Harbour. While there is no dedicated car park, there is ample parking space in front of the houses that line Heybrook Drive.
You may have missed this Victorian colonnade, an open front terraced summer house tucked away on the edge of the Plymouth Hoe (public park). Also known as the Belvedere Wedding Cake, it is a nice place to sit down and enjoy the view when you are not in a hurry.
It has been a while since we got into our favourite restaurant, Bistrot Pierre. Our last visit was to their Weston-super-Mare branch and since the Bath branch closed after a long struggle with the Pandemic hitting the F&B sector, we finally got our chance.
