For lovers of cocktails and all things magical
Finally, what every Harry Potter fan in Exeter has been waiting for! A new witches and wizards themed bar has arrived on Gandy Street, the very street that's rumoured to have inspired Diagon Alley in Rowling's Harry Potter series.

With crazy cocktail concoctions served in potion jars, floating candles and moving paintings that make the walls dance, stepping into The Cauldron Inn may feel somewhat like walking onto the set of Harry Potter.

Novelty Bars LTD saw Exeter's magical history, as supposedly the first and last city in England to practice witchcraft, alongside the speculation that J.K Rowling was inspired by Exeter in her novels, as the perfect opportunity to create this magical-themed bar.

The Cauldron Inn opened its doors to the public on August 25th last year as the world's first witches and witches themed bar, which embraces the new technology of augmented reality.

With The Cauldron Inn VR app, you can reveal a magical dimension right before your eyes - watch dragons, werewolves and just about any other magical creature you can think of move around the building.

Enjoy bizarre cocktails in the pub area downstairs or book a table to venture into one of the many magical themed rooms across the four-story building, where you can enjoy hearty classics from hot cob cauldrons to pizzas and chicken wings.

According to the manager, Neil Perry, the bar is currently thriving around the range of unique (and of course, magical-themed) cocktail combinations they have on offer, all available for 6 and 3/4 - that's 6.75 to any muggle readers.

Popular cocktails include; First Year Experiment, Athyst Cup and Winnie's Woe.

As a busy venue that's popular venue for hen do's and parties, to avoid disappointment - booking is advised!

Although The Cauldron Inn is stated as a pub and restaurant, it definitely feels much more like an experience - and one that shouldn't be missed.
