Welcome to Tea on the Green
to view our holiday opening times.
Our restaurant is in a Sixteenth Century building overlooking Exeter’s historic Cathedral Green. Our seats are arranged on two floors and an outside dining area by the green.
We are open Monday to Saturday 8am – 6pm and Sundays 9am to 6pm. During Graduation Week we are open until 11pm. (July 17 to 21). We also open late on Fridays during the summer.
We serve breakfast all day, except on Sundays when we stop at midday and offer Sunday Roast for the rest of the day. Our extensive lunchtime menu is served through to closing time in the evening.
Afternoon teas start at 2.30 offering the classic Devonshire cream tea (scones, jam, clotted cream and loose-leaf tea), cream tea with smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, and a lovely Cornish cheese platter. We offer a variety of locally baked cakes.
We are locally owned and managed, and buy directly from local farmers, growers, roasters, blenders and brewers.
