Restaurants near Buckerell Lodge hotel

We shall be staying two nights in the Buckerell Lodge Hotel on Topsham Road. Are there any reasonable inexpensive restaurants within about half a mile that we can walk to please?

You can walk into the centre of Exeter within half a mile from Buckerell, opening up lots of options. Cathedral Square in particular offers great options.

I live opposite Buckerell Lodge and you have a couple of options.

Within walking distance the nearest restaurant would be The Hour Glass in Melbourne Street which is approx 10 minutes walk away. This is quite a good local pub and the food is reasonable. You can easily get the bus into Exeter right opposite every 30 minutes in the evening.

Alternatively you can get the T bus right outside the door and go to Topsham

there are 3or 4 decent restaurants there and several pubs it depends on your budget. The Galley or La Petit Maison are both excellent. Olivas is mixed and there is an Italian restaurant. The Lighter Inn is okay for pub food.

Get the bus to Topsham Quay terminus,five minutes past the hour approximately into Topsham from your hotel and on the half hour back,up until 11.55 at night. Topsham is quite a pleasant small town and worth a visit.

After 7pm buy a night rider £2 on the bus a bargain it will get you there and back or anywhere in Exeter all for £2 a taxi would be £25 return!

I hope this helps. Make sure you book for the popular restaurants in Topsham. Buckerell lodge food is average by all accounts haven't eaten there for years.

Enjoy your trip.

Apologies I have just read your question again. For inexpensive restaurants you might be better getting the bus into Exeter and getting off in South Street and taking your pick of the restaurants in the city centre. The restaurants In Topsham would not be inexpensive.

Sorry
