A former butchers, Rodean near Exeter was converted into a restaurant in 1983. The regularly changing menu uses local, seasonal produce to create rich British and European dishes.

Start with the homely slow-cooked pork belly with black pudding and spiced chutney, or the intriguing goats’ cheese tart with poached pear and apple snow. Main dishes on the Rodean menu focus on fine, fresh meat and fish, expertly complemented by seasonal flavours. Try the loin of local venison with cranberry sauce, carved onto a chestnut and balsamic roasted baby onion tart, or the Cornish hake with seared scallops, served on wilted spinach and toasted hazelnuts.

Desserts are every bit as hearty, and include a rich trilogy of chocolate, and a sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and West Country clotted cream. Cosily decorated in warm colours, rustic artwork adorns the walls at Rodean Kenton.

Rodean in Devon is surrounded by idyllic countryside. Starcross Train Station is just a 5-minute drive away, whilst Exeter can be reached in 15 minutes.

    Excellent food and atmosphere throughout the evening. I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions over many years and food and service is consistently first class.

    As usual the quality of the dishes was exemplary...can never understand why the Roedean isn't "starred".

    We love visiting Rodean, Food is always top quality, as is the Service and their complimentary bread board is worth the visit alone! The atmosphere is just right and there is always a friendly welcome. Local produce is used and it tells in the fine dining experience provided here. If I had to be ultra-critical then a slightly wider menu choice on the 2/3 course fixed menu would be a bonus (even if a surcharge was included, as previously offered). Wine list is comprehensive and suits all food types.

    Enjoyed the olives in sweet chilli sauce and the mushroom amuse bouche. Teign Mussels were superb i had pork belly and husband had hake. Both a treat. We both had dessert sticky toffee. Excellent. Sauvignon blanc very refreshing. Nice jazz music. Quiet setting. Just lovely.

    Exquisite food, attentive service and pleasant atmosphere. Rodean must be one of the best fine dining restaurants in South Devon.

    This was our first visit to the Rodean. We came to celebrate our 11 year anniversary. The food and service was fantastic. My wife and I had scallops to start, venison and fillet of beef followed by salted caramel panacotta. We were sat at a lovely table where we could look out onto the pretty village of Kenton at night it was very picturesque. Highly recommend this restaurant. It was a real treat, thank you.
