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.

    It's all yummy ,start at the beginning and work your way through the menu.
    Loved the olives and as a rule would not touch them.
    It's a loverly warm place to take your friends who like good food.
    Might be a idear for the kitchen staff to show there faces and interact with the punters when not so busy?
    Go and enjoy ,you will not regret it .

    We've been to Rodean several times and it never disappoints. The food is sublime and the service is great. I had venison terrine to start, followed by red mullet & put lentils, then the most amazing chocolate orange dessert! Totally wonderful!
