Charlie's Live Lounge
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
1 Cowick Street, Exeter, EX4 1AF
One of Exeter's newest hot spots, Charlie's Live Lounge promises a break from the old routine, offering three floors of entertainment with acoustic sets in the restaurant downstairs, live bands and DJ sets in the loft, and a karaoke lounge on the first floor. If you're looking for somewhere to chill out after a night on the town then Charlie's Lazy Sundays should not be missed, providing great food all day and live music between 4pm and 6pm. Diners can choose from a varied menu boasting favourites such as fish and chips, steak and ale pie and chilli con carne, as well as a whole range of grilled meats and tasty sandwiches. I couldn't resist a juicy homemade cheese burger, made with real beef steak and served with coleslaw, crunchy triple-cooked chips, creamy potato salad and onion rings on the side. My companion chose from the pizza menu, which is available until 2am every Friday and Saturday night, and offers a selection of mouth-watering toppings, from meatballs and garlic chicken to blue cheese and jalapeño peppers. Rich in flavour and generous size, both meals were delicious and satisfying. Providing great food with a lengthy cocktail and wine list, plus excellent service and attention to detail, our night at Charlie's Live Lounge was memorable for all the right reasons.
