Tea on the Green is a licensed restaurant housed in a 16th-century building overlooking Exeter’s historic Cathedral Green. This restaurant brings together influences from great cuisines around the world and the great British tradition of tea time come afternoon. Pull up a pew outside on the cobbled patio, join in the conversation in the downstairs dining area where you get a real feel for this 500-year-old building’s history, or take in the charming view of the cathedral from the more formal upstairs dining room. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are served all day and everything is prepared fresh to order. There’s an extensive gluten-free offering, and you’ll be pleased to hear that meat, eggs and dairy are sourced from local, free-range farms. In 2016, The Times described Sunday lunch at Tea on the Green as ‘magnificent and inexpensive’.
