After the Honiton Wine Bar was awarded a 5 for food hygiene for the first time, Honiton Nub News brings you a selection of other local restaurants and cafes that have also been awarded the highest marks for food hygiene. 

The Food Standards agency conducts random inspections on cafes, pubs and restaurants to ensure they meet safety standards.

The Star

This friendly Wetherspoons pub is located in an 18th century building and is one of the oldest original 'beer houses' in Honiton. It serves an affordable range of food including fry-ups, burgers and steaks. 

You can find The Star at 33 New Street and on Google Maps here 

Did you know? In the 1850s there were 24 inns in Honiton


One of Honiton's most popular cafes, cosy Toast serves up delicious cakes and hot drinks throughout the day. They also serve toasted sandwiches, quiche, macaroni and cheese and burgers. It has a lovely dog-friendly garden at the back. You can read a review of Toast here

You can find Toast at 155 High Street and on Google Maps here.

Boston Tea Party

Situated at the top of the High Street, the ever-popular Boston Tea Party describes itself as 'an elegant English tearoom, but with the added buzz of an urban hotspot'. The freshly baked cakes are lovely, the Fairtrade tea is excellent and the brunches always hit the spot. 

You can find Boston Tea Party at 53 High Street and on Google Maps here.

Yellow Deli 

The Yellow Deli (Nub News)

The Yellow Deli serves an unusual but utterly brilliant array of food and drinks, including delicious 'American diner' style sandwiches. When Nub News visited, the team were exceptionally friendly and they went out of their way to help. It is worth a visit just to see the unusual wooden design, with a sweeping staircase up to a mezzanine level. Their sandwiches and caffeine-free hot drinks are excellent. Sometimes the cafe hosts live music events. 

You can find Yellow Deli at 43 High Street and on Google Maps here.

Honiton Wine Bar

The ever-popular Honiton Wine Bar is a local institution. Run by Honiton Town Councillor Lisa Beigan, her husband Pete, (with their children helping out too) this is a local restaurant which is not to be missed. Pete also runs the Flame Cave Pizza Company, which you might have seen at Honiton Market or at local events. The Wine Bar runs regular themed nights for special occasions - book now for St. Patrick's Day feast!

You can find Honiton Wine Bar at 79 High Street and on Google Maps here

Heron Farm Vineyard

Heron Farm (Nub News)

Situated in the beautiful countryside just outside Honiton, Heron is a very special venue for a lovely meal and an afternoon out. The restaurant has a gift shop (which sells its own wine and apple juice), a children's play area, miniature sheep and guests can also take a stroll around the farm and vineyard. The food is excellent: try the tempting cakes, a smoked salmon brunch or their famous fry-up. 

You can read more here.

Heron Farm is located in Weston, just outside Honiton. You can find it on Google Maps here. 

James' Pattisserie and Sandwiches

James' Patisserie and Sandwiches is the go-to spot for homemade cakes, and he even caters for The Pig. Recent creations include White chocolate Orange Velvet Cake, Chocolate Fudge Cake and Beuno Brookie, which contains Nutella and Kinder Beuno. Delicious!
