Good service and really good quality food at great value for money. We are never disappointed at Zest. Specials are seasonal and varied. The portions are generous one of our preferred places for breakfast or lunch.

Had a super lunch today, good service, excellent food and a very reasonable price. The burgers are as good as you'll find. Looking for decent food in Honiton, look no further than Zest!
