There’s a place in Exeter I must tell you about! Hubbox is the place to go this summer, before being the Milkmaid, followed by The Rum and Crab, the Hubbox owners have absolutely transformed the place into the most atmospheric place in the city with their rooftop terrace for those evenings watching the sunset whilst trying their Hubbox special deal ‘2 for £10 cocktails’ and retro interiors. I couldn’t wait to experience what they had to offer and this is what happened… 

I’d always heard that it’s the place to visit and as soon as I arrived I could immediately see why. With it’s relaxed, classic setup you can happily visit here for a few drinks and a chat with the girls, enjoy a meal or even have a relaxed business meeting. The atmosphere was amazing with laughter, great chat and a lot of fun from customers and staff, it was lovely to hear that the staff loved their jobs and were able to relax with each other and customers as it added to the feel of the place. 

The whole restaurant is a modern retro which I love because it makes the room so warm and cozy and felt quite relaxed to sit and relax and not feel like once you’ve had a meal to go straight after. I must say that the lighting choices throughout the floors were quite usual but I loved it as it gives the room texture and character.

On to the best bit, let’s just say I was definitely in my happy place with my raspberry lemonade which tasted like freshly squeezed raspberry in, very fresh and zingy, right up my street! 

The starters were massive but so incredible, i chose nachos as i have recently been introduced to them and i’m now obsessed. They were flour tortillas which were homemade and all three of us said how amazing they were, as they melted in the mouth with all the toppings, honestly the best nachos i think i will ever have! I will just same they don’t skimp with the portion sizes – I’m not complaining! My parents shared a camembert with sourdough bread that went very well with the nachos that we dipped into. This combo of starters went very well together.

‘I can’t wait to come back now and try out that rooftop terrace on a beautiful sunny day with the girls! I would truly recommend Hubbox for any occasion!’

For our main meals from Hubbox, we decided to go for a variety of choices to try the extent of the menu. Isn’t this just the best looking burger? I went for ‘The Big Cheese’ and oh wow this was amazing, inside you’ll find a load of different flavours which I would never think about putting together with the buttermilk fried halloumi, beetroot, cheese, pineapple and it was extremely mouth-watering and delicious and it was great to try something a little different to my usual go-to also it’s vegan which is so good for people like me who is vegetarian, I often find it hard to find a dish full of flavour and a little out of the ordinary. It was a dream!

Dad absolutely loved his Chicken kebab from their grill range and he said it was beautiful with the garlic mayo chill sauces, he loves food with a little spice as it makes a dish more interesting doesn’t it? 

To try another part of their menu mum had their ‘Hub Summer Salad’ this is another vegetarian option which is also good for that diet! Full of goodness from all angles. I absolutely love chickpeas when it comes to a salad as it fills you up for a long period of the day. This ‘Hub Summer Salad’ will leave you feeling energized and wanting more. If you’re not hungry enough for one of their mouthwatering burgers or a pick from the grill, then the salads are the way to go! With our mains we had a few sides of skinon fries, sweet potato fries (I’m obsessed!) and ‘BBQ burnt end beans’ it just not the same without some sides.

It was safe to say this was the best meal overall we’ve ever had with all the different flavour combos that we had never thought of putting together before. The staff was ever so polite whilst having a joke and a laugh with us which was lovely to see such a happy workplace. I honestly enjoyed myself so much having a good old catch up with my parents, I never get the time to have a chinwag nowadays with them due to being so busy and what a lovely place to do it in too. The music was really good too, not too loud and not overwhelming which helped the atmosphere of the whole experience to be incredible! I can’t wait to come back now and try out that rooftop terrace on a beautiful sunny day with the girls! I would truly recommend Hubbox for any occasion!
