EDDINGTON’S OF EXETER: Proudly, Truly, Farm to Table.

Written by The Editors

For over two decades, ­Eddington’s of Exeter has maintained a dedicated focus on personalized ­service, seasonally-inspired menus and a value-driven ­customer experience. Expect quality ingredients at their peak of freshness at any given time, fresh off the vine, picked from the tree, foraged from the forest or dug up from the earth.

Local, Delicious Ingredients

The Scene

The yellow brick Italianate-style mansion on Main Street stands out with decorative bracket eaves, large bay windows and a well-manicured lawn with mature maple trees. This is the original Carling homestead (circa 1870s), a designated historic landmark. Contemporary updates from two extensive renovations, including an additional 20-seat dining room to ensure well-spaced tables and a tri-level fully-shaded seasonal deck for up to 60 people, blend smoothly with original features such as the elegant 12-foot ceilings upstairs and down.
