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”.

“A lovely spot by the harbour with real respect for the local catch” – that’s the deal at Mitch Tonks’s popular and well-known dining room, which serves “a great selection of top quality fish and seafood”; “still one of the best despite the expansion of the Tonks empire”.

For 31 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).
