About Rodean Exeter
This family run business is a charming restaurant just outside of Exeter, located in Kenton village. The quaint restaurant is a proper local gem, and is definitely worth the short drive from central Exeter to sample some proper West Country nosh. The restaurant has won numerous awards over the year and is even mentioned in the Michelin guide for its outstanding offering of West Country fare.
The interior of the restaurant is cosy and friendly with rustic touches and chic décor. The atmosphere is slightly high-end without feeling intimidating, and service is superb. The menu at the restaurant is a classy take on British dishes of the area and is well-priced for the quality of the food. The ingredients are all locally sourced and everything is made in house by the team.
Starters such as boudin of guinea fowl or the pot of the sea are designed to tantalise your appetite before the decadent mains to come. The seared line caught sea bass or the 28 day dry aged beef are excellent options, while the venison loin dressed with parmesan and truffle takes it to another level. Definitely stick around for dessert, which may see you feasting on baked dark chocolate tart or a gorgeous passionfruit panna cotta.

The restaurant also offers great value set menus of two or three courses, perfect for group dining or a lovely meal before going out to the theatre. Rodean restaurant also offers a smashing vegetarian menu, to accommodate to plant-based punters, plus on weekends there is a special menu for lunch. The tasting menu is a great option too and includes some brilliant wine pairings from the extensive list of European and international grapes.
