In the exciting setting of the 1855 fish market, this two-year-old sustainable seafood specialist delivers “an earnest love letter to seafood and the fishermen who provide it” (as The Independent’s Kate Ng put it), with dishes changing to accommodate the catch even between customers – an “extraordinary way to run a restaurant” but one that “really works”. “It’s only a no-choice tasting menu” these days, which may not be to all tastes, but the results are “inventive” and “very reasonably priced for the quality”.

This “interesting” yearling serves “fantastic seafood” in the “authentic surroundings” of the 1855 fish market, refurbished in minimalist style to host a restaurant serving fish landed directly from day boats based in the harbour. There’s a heavy emphasis on sustainability, with the dishes complemented by English wines from the region. Top Tip – “wear a scarf – it’s a tad chilly inside”.

Opened in summer 2021 (too late for survey feedback) in Weymouth’s historic Old Fish Market, at the heart of the local fishing community, the restaurant focuses on a ‘sea-to-plate’ policy of sustainability, and looks promising.

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).
