Working in Plymouth,staying in Saltash decided to give the place a try after seeing it on google maps. It's basically an estate pub that has a Chinese restaurant in the lounge. My colleague said it was like going for a Chinese in a Labour Club. But once the food came out, all apprehension disappeared, I had steamed dim sim which... More

Our favourite Chinese restaurant. Great menu, reasonably priced and very tasty food. Good choice of beer. Friendly and very efficient staff. Also does take away and deliver locally. Love this place, never had a bad meal or a bad time.

We called in the Rodney on the way home one night forca drink and decided to have a meal in the restaurant. They forgot our starters and for the price we paid its a good job they did. But on another side on a Tuesday they do a Curry and a pint for £7 but you have to eat that... More

We were staying at a local campsite (Dolbeare Park) in August 2016 & had a very tasty Chinese takeaway delivered onsite within 30 minutes of ordering over the telephone. Member of staff delivering the takeaway was polite & pleasant & the portion sizes were fair. Would recommend the sweet n sour chicken balls & special curry dishes.

I've done a review a little while ago but we recently went back to celebrate another birthday in the family. We always get wonderful service there but the cherry on the cake this time was it was my fathers birthday but he hadn't charged his phone and was expecting a video call from his brother in the Far East.

Decided to give the takeaway a second chance after having an salty meal the first time. Tonight my husband and myself had sweet and sour king prawn Hong Kong style. The sweet and sour sauce was awful. No sweetness at all just vinegar. In fact there was so much vinegar it made my eyes sting! If it wasn't the end... More

A clean environment, good and friendly service and food that was outstanding in quantity and quality. Not your standard Chinese, but full of surprise and quite delicious. Recommended without reservation. Don't be put off by the shabby exterior of the The Rodney itself.

Went here for a family birthday. First impression was a little dubious as its set in a separate lounge area of a pub. Nothing to look at from the outside but as soon as you walk in through the door the aromas of freshly cooked food hits you. Great views over the estuary. The menu is fairly extensive and prices...

Probably the best Chinese eat in restaurant in this town or near it. Set up clearly shown on the web link. Always been busy when we've been there. Convenient for locals and anyone on their way in or out of Cornwall. Two minutes from the A38 and less than a mile from the Tamar Bridge. Worth a Tripadvisor entry.
