Escaping work to play for a few hours
Long and lazy afternoons are encouraged at Southernhay House, where lunch is served through to 3pm and our Bar menu through the afternoon. Our experienced and informed staff will tempt you with frivolous, classic or straight-up cool cocktails. For a sybaritic treat, our lady-like afternoon teas are a must, whether entertaining your parents or throwing a tea party for
“Lost afternoons chatting under the trees or in front
of the fire”
If you are staying with us, your afternoon might be the time to explore historic Exeter for a few hours and our Managers will be happy to make reservations or suggestions for a trip through 2,000 years of history.
Exeter is full of Tudor back streets, historic buildings, independent shops and quirky outlets. Here, you can buy anything from a bespoke suit to unique contemporary jewellery, from real live vinyl records to first edition books, from vintage clothing to designer labels.
