Enjoyed the taster menu here last week. Food was amazing, service great and lovely setting. Will definitely visit again to try the full versions of the food tried on the taster menu - great to have such an impressive restaurant just up the road!

Treated to a surprise anniversary meal here and it was amazing. The venue is small, romantic and personal without feeling you are listening to each other's conversation. The three course set meal we had was outstanding as was the quiet service from our host. We were treated to a few amuse bouche along the way which added to the experience.... More

We went to Ode a few weeks ago when visiting the area. The food and service was fabulous. We couldn't fault it and would certainly recommend it to anyone.It's a small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. My vegetarian meal was excellent.

This is one of those restaurants you book as soon as you know you'll be in the area. The food is always beautiful and we have never ever had anything not up to standard. I wish we lived nearer!

This is a different eating experience. The Ode is a must if you are visiting Shaldon. The food is delicious and freshly cooked to order. We will be taking visitors back.

Many friends and colleagues have long raved about The Ode, and it's taken me a while to test out their claims. Having now been, and realised how right they were, I feel I should have gone earlier. It's a small, intimate restaurant, creating an atmosphere that is buzzy rather than claustrophobic. The friendly staff are attentive without being intrusive, and... More

What an amazing restaurant. We have been here 4 or 5 times over a couple of years for special occasions. The food is locally sourced and excellent. The sort of food you would not cook at home. Service very good and the great thing there is only one sitting so no rush unlike other restaurants in the area. Would recommend... More
