The harbourside flagship of Mitch Tonks’s West Country group is a “great all-rounder”, majoring in “superb fish and seafood”. The Italian-influenced cooking is “delicious and unfussy”, the wine list “interesting at all price points”“and to cap it all, diners are made to feel really welcome. It’s hard to find this level of hospitality nowadays”. Top Menu Tip – “the focaccia and anchoiade is legendary”.

Mitch Tonks’s Mediterranean-inspired harbourside HQ “always hits the spot” and is run “with charm and polish”“the anchoiade and focaccia alone is worth a trip from the northern Highlands!”.

Mitch Tonks’s “fun” lockdown spinoff, Seahorse Al Mare, may have bitten the dust, to reporters’ ire (“a shame the po-faced council has not allowed it to continue. No continental al fresco dining allowed absent a crisis!”), but his flagship restaurant is back and still “as good as ever” – in fact it’s “everything a good fish restaurant should be”, marrying “brilliant” catch and a “smiley staff”.

“British seafood at its best” is “worth a detour” at Mitch Tonks’s “buzzy” (if “rather cramped”) flagship. The “unfussy cooking” and “respect shown to the super-fresh produce always leaves you happy”; and it’s “a perfect little spot to hunker down over a long lunch, before walking it all off along the waterfront”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"We were a walk in at lunchtime. We were greeted very well by the barman and he got us a table 30mins and made us feel like regulars. The food, service and ambience were very good. The whole place was just the sort of restaurant you want to find while on holiday but rarely do. For the quality of cooking it was great value. We loved it. "
