Featured Devon Restaurants
. The Seahorse
Fish & seafood restaurant in Dartmouth
5 South Embankment - TQ6
“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”.
. Crab Shack
Fish & seafood restaurant in Teignmouth
3 Queen St - TQ14
“Seafood served as it should be: it couldn’t be fresher coming off the boat on the Back Beach”, wins universal acclaim for this “fun, if not particularly smart place”. A change of ownership has brought “a wider choice of fish” but thankfully no compromise on quality – and “it’s still as difficult as ever to get a table without booking 2 weeks ahead...”.
. The Old Inn
British, Traditional restaurant in Drewsteignton
“Faultless food” from former Gidleigh Park chef Duncan Walker wins consistently high ratings for this “lovely” 17th-century village inn on the edge of Dartmoor, complete with “log fires, comfy sofas, and golden retrievers”. It’s a confined dining area, though, which can “leave one at the mercy of the loudly expressed opinions of the other diners”.
. No 7 Fish Bistro
Fish & seafood restaurant in Torquay
7 Beacon Terrace - TQ1
“Brilliant for fish-lovers” – the Stacey family’s “warm and casual” (but rather unsung) operation (with a wine bar upstairs) has served up the pick of Tor Bay’s seafood (most of it landed at Brixham harbour at the other end of the bay) for 25 years. Daily specials are listed on a “series of blackboards, with a separate board advertising tempura, and a tray of fish samples is also brought round”.
. Rock Salt
British, Modern restaurant in Plymouth
31 Stonehouse St - PL1
This ex-pub turned “romantic” leading light of Millbay’s dining scene “continues to produce excitingly different dishes to your average brasserie” (with options such as a seven-course tasting menu), and “to a consistently high level”. A “really good choice of breakfast dishes” also makes it “a perfect spot for a lazy brunch”.
. Kentisbury Grange Hotel
Afternoon tea restaurant in Kentisbury
Part of a high-end boutique bolthole, this walnut- and marble-bedecked 17th century coaching house is a “favourite” among reporters: “the food (under Michael Caines’ patronage, and spanning tasting menus to afternoon teas) is superb, and the service exemplary”.
