Food and ambience

Location and contact

A fabulous Devon country pub serving locally sourced food and drinks with a focus on sustainability. Reopened in 2015, The Seven Stars Kennford is a vibrant gastropub that is well supported within the thriving community of Kennford (on the outskirts of Exeter). When the kitchen is closed we still offer our delicious (and filling) pizzas. Plenty of events take place during the year, please check out our website for latest updates. We pride ourselves on our welcome and service - please come say "hi!"
