This is a simply wonderful new website on the famous Deller’s café. I’ve seen other, more modest accounts of Deller’s on various websites, but this new history is on a whole new level. It brings Deller’s to life with numerous letters and pictures. Well done.

Absolutely fantastic site. I found my mother in-laws signature when working there in the Serveries, in the 1930’s. Nee Irene Bond (verified by my wife), when married her name was Irene Ragalsky.

Hello I have spotted an old picture posted on Exeter memories of Deller’s Cafe in cathedral yard. I looked through your website on Sunday. My Gran always talked about this place and how grand it was. So lovely to see the pictures. I wonder if there are people still alive who used to work there who could give you their stories.
I took a screenshot of the posted picture but I’ll add a comment to the post so she could contact you with it.

I’ve just found this website and was amazed to find my father’s signature on p4 of the 200 regulars signatures. Do you know over what dates these span? [We believe the book was created and signed in 1937).
He had a local band, The Steve Jackson Dance Band, who may even have played at Dellers in the war. I believe he met my mother when she was a waitress there. What a great, informative site this is. Thank you for creating it.

What an interesting site. Dellers was an Exeter legend. Sadly, I didn’t see it, as I was born after WW2, but the information you have gathered here gives a fascinating glimpse in to the past of this very popular institution, with photos I have not seen before. Thank you.
