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.
