Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“The very best fish and seafood, simply but expertly treated” continue to win very high esteem for Mitch Tonks’s acclaimed small dining room, right by the seafront. Service is “courteous and friendly too” (if at times “slow”).
“Splendid” fish and seafood, “cooked with skill and empathy”, generate huge enthusiasm for Mitch Tonk’s “small, closely packed dining room, opening directly onto the seafront”; it helps that its style is “lovely and friendly” too.
Fans say “you’ll not find a more perfect place to eat fish” than Mitch Tonks’s “lovely and light” dining room, where “everything is done beautifully but without fuss” – not least “lovely fish, straight out of the sea”, cooked “with great flair”.
“Dartmouth’s jewel” – Mitch Tonks’s understated dining room near the river “straddles the smart/casual line perfectly” and serves “outstanding fresh fish”, cooked in a “beautifully simple” (perhaps slightly unadventurous) fashion.
The Seahorse Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I've eaten here 3 times this year and my food ratings have gone from 5, to 4 and now to 2. A late November day isn't an ideal time to visit a Dartmouth restaurant but in fact it was quite busy. I suspect the regular chef wasn't there as the food was poor for such a highly rated reataurants. My January lunch which I rated at 5 was exceptional but this time I had Mussels that were so heavily saled as to be barely edible and Gurnad which was mediocre. The other dishes were only marginally better. I will go back because at its best the Seahorse is top class but I'll check whether the top chef is cooking."
