Best Bars in Exeter

So, you’re in the South West. You know what that means, right?! It’s scrumpy time, boys!

Cider is the favourite tipple of the locals down this neck of the woods, so trying some of this scrumptious beverage while in the area is a stag essential.

The city is super easy to navigate so no stag gets left behind. A short walk down to the Quayside is a must on summer evenings as you can relax with a pint on pub benches in the sun.

The city centre has a more buzzing vibe at night when late-night bars open their doors, often boasting a sleek and sophisticated interior with awesome drinks to match.

The good folk of Devon claim they make better cider than their counterparts in Somerset.
There's only one way to find out... Fiiiiiight! Or just have a drink.

Where to Head...


You won't need to dig out the A-Z to find your way around Exeter, the city centre is compact and easy to navigate on foot. Even after a few pints of scrumpy. The best of the nightlife can be found in the historic streets surrounding the Cathedral.

Must see...

Exeter is an ammonites throw from the Jurassic Coast which has unearthed some of the most import dinosaur bones. It's well worth a trip down to nearby Exmouth, especially for any of you Exeter stag party comrades suffering the effects of the night before.
Or you can head underground, no we don't mean finding Exeter's guerrilla army ("Viva la revolution my luvvers!") but the network of ancient tunnels that run underneath the city's streets.

Pub Trivia

 The Guildhall is the oldest civic building in Britain with some parts dating back to 1160. That's even older than Exeter FC's last trophy!
JK Rowling, Rhod Gilbert, Will Young and Ben Collins (aka The Stig mark I) all went to Exeter University.

Exeter has strong musical pedigree, Ben Howard, Muse and Chris Martin all come from the city.

On Ya Bike! Getting Around Exeter

Getting around Exeter is really easy. The city is compact enough to get around the city centre on foot. If you are in the need for speed, while a bus might not exactly be "mustard" it's faster than walking and by getting a MegaRider ticket or SmartCard you can have unlimited travel. Far cheaper than shelling out for cabs.


"Bloggy" - Moody
"Clopping" - Injured
"Wazzock" - Idiot
"Manging" - Mixing
"Guddle" - Drink greedily
"Ne'er moind the bloggy wazzock, ee wer manging 'is ales and guddling all noight and now is clopping all abouts." - Pay no attention to the frail fellow, he mixed his drinks, had far too many and now he's slightly worse for wear.

Why choose an Exeter stag do...

An Exeter stag do might not be the first thing that leaps to mind as a top lads holiday, but the city is fast becoming a powerhouse of the southwest region. The residents of Exeter enjoy some of the best nightlife in the UK - which translates to top quality stag nights, with excellent Exeter stag accommodation, restaurants, and entertainment around the city to keep you and the boys busy. There are over 100 pubs to choose from too, and the selection of clubs for you and the lads to visit is nothing to sneer at either. Although incredible, the pub selection in Exeter isn't even the main draw (I know, we're surprised too). Instead, stags should be flocking there in droves to try the unbelievable range of stag activities in Exeter, clambering over cliff faces, water sports on the river Exe, traipsing around the Devonshire countryside, or revving your engines with some motorsports. Exeter sure isn't the first word in adrenaline fuelled stag dos - but it certainly is the last.

A brief history of Exeter

Throughout its history people have invaded, or tried to invade, Exeter. Who knows exactly what has drawn groups there ... maybe it's the buzzing nightlife, maybe it's the huge array of activities on offer... maybe it's the fact that it's located close to the mouth of the River Exe, making it very easy to attack. We couldn't possibly say for sure.

  • 250BC - The Romans settle in and commence trading, recognising Exeter as the place to be before it gets cool. They're like toga wearing hipsters.
  • 658AD - The Britons and the Saxons both like Exeter a lot and manage to coexist happily for a while.
  • 876 - The Danes, realising what a party hotspot Exeter is, begin a game of invasion and expulsion with Exeter that will last over a century.
  • 1136 - A siege against Rougemont Castle in Exeter ends only when the castle inhabitants run out of wine. You can't say that Exeter men don't have their priorities right.
  • 2001 - We start sending stag groups to celebrate the way the Romans did - with lots of drinking, dancing, and general merriment.

When's good to visit Exeter?

As a seaside destination, Exeter is pretty hot during the summer months, when the weather gets ... hot. The British Channel isn't exactly warm at any point so you'll want to hop in at its most temperate - unless the wedding scheme calls for all the groomsmen to have turned a fetching shade of blue. Don't feel you've got to restrict yourself to the summer though, since plenty of our activities run just as well, if not better, in the wetter, muddier months (quad biking, we're looking at you). The party atmosphere remains at a premium all year round too, with the students waking up as September ends, and keeping the buzz alive when other coastal towns are going to sleep. There are dozens of festivals through the year too, so Exeter's certainly no fair-weather friend to stag dos.

Banking on Exeter

As one of the few Devonshire destinations that isn't swarmed by flocks of tourists every season, prices don't skyrocket every summer either, and the students keep the costs low the rest of the year. So, there's no need for any bar dodging stags to miss their round on an Exeter stag weekend.

How to arrive - travelling to Exeter for the stag do

As long as you're heading south and west, you're more or less on your way to Exeter. More specifically, Exeter is at the south end of the M5 so you can follow that to Exeter's doorstep. Trains run from London about hourly, as do trains from Bristol. South Wales and Birmingham run lines too. If you're economising on the transport to save for the good stuff, National Express and Megabus do coaches to and from Exeter, and are a good, cheap option if you're coming in a group.
