Intimate neighbourhood dining at Rodean Restaurant
Just a short drive from Exeter city centre and close to Powderham Castle, Rodean Restaurant is a delightful find for those hankering after an intimate neighbourhood dining experience.
Once a butcher’s shop overlooking Kenton’s charming village green, this family-run restaurant enjoys a double-decade reputation for excellent food and welcoming service.
Chef patron Matthew Tilt explores Devon’s coast and countryside in his quest to garner the county’s best produce, which he showcases in classic dishes.
Kick off your evening with an aperitif in one of the three cosy dining rooms where exposed stone, wood panelling and banquettes create a contemporary backdrop for Matthew’s British- and Mediterranean-inspired creations.
The à la carte menu caters for all appetites and provides a delicious way to sample Devon delicacies such as Brixham crab, Elston Farm venison and Creedy Carver duck. Thoughtful vegetarian and vegan choices ensure plant-based diners are well looked after, while oenophiles will appreciate a decent selection of wines by the glass.
The popular Sunday lunch menu helps this Kenton gem retain its position as the lucky locals’ gourmet go-to, while also attracting foodies from further afield.
