About us

Sustainable seafood restaurant on England’s Seafood Coast

Rockfish restaurants are located by the sea and waterside and specialise in serving fresh local & sustainable seafood. Our fish is selected by us each day at market where it is prepared on the harbourside by our skilled fishmongers and delivered each morning to our restaurants.

Our menu features classic seafood dishes and all the favourites like dressed crab, oysters, prawns and traditional fish and chips; but the real stand out is the daily selection of seafood which gets marked up the tablecloth by the waiter who will explain the cooking method of each one, whether it be chargrilled, roasted or crisp fried. Our wines and beers are selected especially to compliment seafood to complete the experience.

There is something for everyone at Rockfish and we believe that people want to eat more seafood, it's healthy, delicious and there is no better experience than eating fish overlooking the water from which it was caught.

The Rockfish Story By Mitch  Tonks

In 2010, me and my best pal, Mat Prowse, opened Rockfish in Dartmouth for the first time.

We’d always agreed that seafood tastes best by the sea, and that the fish caught in the waters off the south coast of Britain is the best in the world.

Yet at that time, if you drove to any of the south coast fishing ports, it was hard to find a family restaurant doing justice to this great seafood. We wanted to change that, to make it easy for people to enjoy this simple pleasure.

Since that first restaurant in Dartmouth, we have opened a few more restaurants in seaside towns where fishing is part of daily life. The thinking remains the same: buy the best seafood and cook it simply and expertly. 

Fresh seafood and happiness. All by the sea.

We hope that you will enjoy working with us.
