Restaurants On England’s Seafood Coast

Here you’ll find a guide to some of the best restaurants on England’s Seafood Coast specialising in seafood.

Rockfish Exmouth

Rockfish Exmouth is located next to the town slipway overlooking the beautiful Exe estuary.  The tide rips past the front of the dining room providing the perfect setting to enjoy some great seafood. Our chefs prepare fresh mussels from the estuary and other local fish which are prepared simply by either crisp frying, grilling or cooking over charcoal. On colder days the restaurant and deck are heated by a log burner and make the atmosphere warm and cosy as the tide continues to run past.

Rockfish Dartmouth

This was the first Rockfish restaurant, which overlooks the spectacular river Dart. The river is full of ever changing activity, from fishing & sailing boats to super yachts, there is something new and interesting everyday throughout the year. The restaurant has 90 covers with an upstairs area that can be hired for private celebrations and in warm days we have a small terrace to eat in the sun. During the colder months the restaurant is heated by a log burner which makes it a great place to come and enjoy seafood after a bracing walk by the sea. They also have a take-away situated at the top of the ramp of the Lower Ferry, serving thesame great seafood which can be enjoyed on the watersedge in Bayards cove with a cold pint from the Dartmouth Arms.

Rockfish Brixham

Perhaps the closest restaurant to the source of fish in the UK. Rockfish Brixham sits in the world famous fish market overlooking the boats as they land their catch which is in our kitchen an hour or so later. They have seating for 80 inside and a further 80 on the terrace which looks directly down to the fishing fleet, the smaller boats start landing from around 5pm each day, its an exciting sight to see fish of all shapes and sizes coming ashore, there really isn’t a better place to enjoy seafood.  They also have a full bar with South West ales, a great selection of quality wines and ice cold Estrella Galicia, a fantastic beer with seafood. Downstairs there is a takeaway and a cafe selling seafood breakfasts where the fishermen and buyers gather for a coffee and some grilled fish each day. Next door to the cafe is our fish room where we prepare fresh seafood from the market each day for our restaurants.

The Seahorse

The restaurant specializes in seafood and is situated on the banks of the River Dart in Dartmouth. We are lucky to have some of the best fish and shellfish in the world landed here much of which is cooked over an open charcoal fire. In addition to our full menu we offer a 2 course menu for £20 which is served at lunchtimes and until 7pm excluding Saturday night.

They have an extensive wine list of over 180 bins, all carefully chosen for seafood and we open a selection each day to serve by the glass so there is always something different to try.   

There is a warm atmoshpere and friendly service, families are most welcome to dine with us and if there is any other attention you may require whilst eating with us please let us know. If you plan to stay with us after the last passenger ferry please let us know as we can organise a comfortable boat across the river.
