Have your fill(et) of fish!

Turbot Dartmouth

If you're looking for a holiday and love seafood, then look no further!

Eating out

Dartmouth must be one of the foodie capitals of the UK, and seafood is naturally well represented in and around the town. From fine dining in the Seahorse, al fresco eating at Britania on the Beach, upmarket fish’n’chips at Rockfish to the Oyster Shack’s titular shellfish, you will find almost any seafood you desire (as long as it’s in season). Take a look at our eating out pages for ideas. We’d particularly recommend visiting Rockfish’s takeaway and eating in the sun on the waterside. It’s simply the best food you can eat with your fingers.

Eating in

Maybe you’d rather cook for yourself. You’ll find there are a number of places to buy fish, but we particularly recommend Wild Food Devon, the fishmonger in Dartmouth market – it’s about the first stall you come to. Moby Nicks in Fairfax Place in the town centre is also worth a visit. Both carry a good variety of fish and shelfish, with an emphasis on locally caught stock; both will give you plenty of advice on cooking too.

If you want to get closer to the source, try David Walker in Brixham fish market which is right by the quayside, where you might get to see the boats unloading.

If you want to cook for yourself, but you’re not sure how, try a one-day cookery course at Manna from Devon across the river in Kingswear. You’ll fin our kitchen is equipped with just about everything you need to expand your culinary repertoire!

Catch your own

If you are more Robson Green than Rick Stein, you should find the sea and the river pretty well stocked – see our page about fishing around Dartmouth.

Whatever your interest in seafood, we reckon Dartmouth will delight you.
