Local operators buy Exeter's oldest café restaurant

The Milkmaid, one of the oldest trading café restaurants in the city of Exeter, has been sold to local buyers.

The new owners, Colin and Heather Phillips, previously ran a post office in the Exeter area.

The 214-seat restaurant is located in a prime retail area in Catherine Street, near the new Princesshay development.

The Exeter office of Christie + Co sold the leasehold off a guide price of £245,000 on behalf of Brend Hotels, the largest independent family-owned hotel operator in the South West of England.
