On the Waterfront, Exeter


Perched on the edge of the historic Exeter Quayside, we are housed on the ground floor of a magnificent 19th century warehouse. This building and many like it nearby served the booming woollen industry of the mid 19th century.

The industry is now a distant memory but the Exeter Quay is still a hive of activity and interest, popular with locals and holidaymakers alike.

Our restaurant offers a selection of tempting lunch and dinner dishes - from our well renowned pizzas to fresh fish, meats, pastas and salads - while our extensive bar offers a selection of wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks.

Whether you are looking to dine out at tables for 2-6 or host a party upwards of 100 people, On The Waterfront is a versatile venue offering quality food and drink with a warm and friendly atmosphere.

At On The Waterfront we also pride ourselves on our Gluten Free and vegan options, these include our lovely pizzas and burgers.
