The Seahorse on the mouth of the River Dart champions some of the best fish and shellfish in the world from the nearby landing site and is a favourite haunt of the foodie establishment. Co-owned by seafood hero Mitch Tonks and Mat Prowse, the menu is a seafood lover’s tour of Europe’s great fish dishes and cooking over a charcoal fire is the restaurant’s specialty. The food’s simplicity is deceptive as it is refreshing, focusing on the catch of the day rather than fancy presentation. Cherished by critics, foodies and locals, The Seahorse is a rare and beautiful gem in Britain’s sea of restaurants, championed ‘Best Seafood Restaurant in the UK 2013’ by the Good Food Guide and ‘Best UK Restaurant 2012’ by Observer Food Monthly.
The Seahorse is a beacon of seafood brilliance – showcasing over 100 delectable dishes served at the shore-side eatery, and capturing pearls of advice from the fish experts themselves.
“The Seahorse… is perfect. Our dinner there was the best meal that I have had all year.”
