Franco Manca, Queen Street

Just a five minute walk away from your uni accommodation is Franco Manca, a pizza place famed for its sourdough bases. The Exeter branch also has a stunning outdoor terrace for you to enjoy their great range of pizzas and salads, as well as a choice of light bites that are perfect to share with friends. There’s also vegan specials available daily, and the choice of a gluten-free pizza base, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

On the Waterfront, The Quay

This stunning bar and pizza restaurant is one of the most popular pizza places in Exeter, with an impressive 4.2 star rating on Google. Perfectly placed on Exeter Quay, On The Waterfront promises top quality and locally sourced pizza and a wide selection of local lagers and beers. They’re also happy to cater to big groups so it is an ideal spot for a celebration with friends or family when they come to visit you at university.

Pizza Express, Cathedral Yard

Pizza Express is a high street staple across the UK, and with good reason! You can always be sure of a good quality food, and plenty of options to make it your own. It’s also a great budget-friendly place for eating out with friends, and if you look around online you can usually find a voucher code to save a little more too! They also have a fantastic selection of pasta dishes, salads and starters – the dough balls are not to be missed!

The Flat, Fore Street

Another must-visit spot that’s just around the corner from our Exeter University accommodation is The Flat. This indie restaurant is widely regarded as one of the best pizza places in Exeter and boasts an entirely vegan and vegetarian menu of freshly prepared, hand stretched pizza bases with organic ingredients. From classic margaritas to delicious veggies and speciality oils, this is the perfect choice when you want a pizza that’s just a little fancier than your average takeaway.

The Old Firehouse, New North Road

The Old Firehouse is a popular spot with students in Exeter, in part thanks to their 15% student discount, but also because they offer a classic pizza menu. The choice is relatively small but perfectly formed with something for everyone. You can choose from signature toppings like margarita or pepperoni, but also an impressive choice of veggies – and a tempting selection of dips! Plus, you and your pals can enjoy your pizza alongside an impressive array of local beers and ales too.
