Southernhay House Hotel


If you are planning a meeting for business or pleasure in central Exeter and are looking for a small, very elegant and distinctive venue, look at Southernhay House Hotel. This is a Georgian townhouse with colonial influences, built in 1805 and refurbished in 2011 as a chic, boutique hotel.

The golden, Raj-inspired private dining room at Southernhay House Hotel is perfect for high-level presentations, product launches, meetings and corporate celebrations. With seating for up to 14 around a long, Edwardian mahogany table, an open fire, antiques and the Southernhay kitchen at your disposal, the room also has wifi and internet enabled flat screen Samsun TV and its own Sonos sound system.

Our private dining menus are tailored for either business lunching during negotiations or presentations, or for more leisurely celebrations. The room has also been used for filming TV pilots and “conversation-type” documentaries.

Our menus are imaginative, seasonal and flexible. All business menus include complementary teas, coffee, juice and water but it’s reassuring to know that our wines are available by the glass , as well as from an extensive and independent wine list:
• Working lunch Menu £22 per head
• Private Dining Lunch menus from £29 per head
• “Gentlemen’s menu” - see website for more information
• “Autumn Affair” - see website for more information

Private consultations with Chef Christopher Archambault welcomed. You can find out more about our Chef at: or on twitter @HardBoiledChef
