The Seahorse has been particularly recommended by a number of our guests, which is reassuring as it’s our favourite Dartmouth Restaurant too, even when the Angel (possibly Dartmouth’s most famous restaurant ’til now) was still open. This is dining at its finest, in a great atmosphere, on a great location by the quayside; the focus is on fish and local produce, and the wine list is excellent.
Chef Mitch Tonks is becoming a household name as The Seahorse is gathering awards after award, including the Guardian/Observer Best Restaurant Awards 2013, judged by Jay Raynor and co.
They are not alone – The Seahorse is also included in Giles Coren’s top 50 restaurants 2013. He says:
“Mitch Tonks is the No 1 man in Britain for fish, the atmosphere is electric and the booze flows like floodwater. A local restaurant I’d happily travel five hours to for supper.”
Fortunately, it’s only 15 mins walk from No1 The Pottery! So, just in case you’re not salivating yet, just take a look at their menus.
P.S. If a fine dining experience is not what you’re after, Mitch Tonks also opened Rockfish, an up market fish and chip restaurant overlooking the quay, with another takeaway just round the corner. “Tomorrow’s fish are still in the sea”.
