About Us


Welcome to Circa

We are a restaurant in Exeter, Devon

Our self-taught head chef and co-founder, Rob, and his kitchen team aim to do justice to the world class produce that surrounds us by offering an exciting menu that changes seasonally. They make as much in-house as possible, from charcuterie to vinegar, and bake our heritage sourdough fresh every day. 

In the restaurant our emphasis is on creating a relaxed, unpretentious environment for people to come and enjoy fantastic food in good company. Our front of house team is headed up by GM Kate, and with her lovely team will try to make your experience a memorable one. 

Focusing on small scale producers, sustainability is at the heart of Circa's ethos. We focus on natural wines using indigenous and rare grape varieties, hand picked by Kate, with a little help from sommelier and Natural Wine Merchant Gennaro Effuso.
We highlight beloved regions, Bordeaux, the Loire Valley, Marlborough to name a few, while also listing wilder wines yielded from volcanic land and innovative producers in places such as Austria, Sicily and England.

Our independent merchants allow us to forever evolve the list, experimenting with a variety of styles and winemakers of more playful to more classical low intervention styles. Some wines only being available in finite quantities - when they are gone, they are gone.

We hope to see you soon.
