THE REFRESHMENT ROOM: The Definitive List of the 10 Best Bars in Exeter

on
19th September 2017

Have you heard the great news? KOMPAS has just launched in Exeter. As our first order of business, we’re here to fill you in on the best bars in Exeter – from pubs and local boozers through to speakeasies. 

The Ram

They may have just released a new menu featuring everything from Yorkshire puddings to green pesto quinoa salad… but when it comes to Exeter’s Ram bar, is anything really ever going to replace the legendary basket of curly fries? We guess we’d better start working our way through the new menu items. You know, just to be sure. The University’s on-campus watering hole plays host to weekly events from Monday Quiz night to Friday Rameoke (if you’re joining us in the aftermath of this week’s session, we salute you) as well as a whole host of other events, society meet-ups and live sport showings. Serving hangover breakfasts from 10am and ultimate deadline fuel until 9pm each evening, it’s the go-to spot for students and visitors wanting to unwind. With the new menu boasting plenty of veggie and vegan options, it’s got us all pretty much covered. Except dessert-lovers. But when the deals are this sweet, who needs dessert, right? (Sorry. We’re working on our puns.) #CurlyFries #Cider #TheRam #RamBar #UniversityofExeter #UniofExeter #Exeter #Rameoke #ExeterUni #ExeterLife #Student #StudentLife #IgersExeter #Foodporn #Fries #PubGrub #Devon #VisitDevon #ExeterFreshers #ExeterStudents #StudentsGuild
