Tonking great fishing and chips
Mitch Tonks today becomes the latest chef name to move into fish and chips.
RockFish Seafood & Chips is not a take-away but a place to sit in and eat “top-quality but affordable” local fish, breaded, battered or grilled alongside some traditional specialities like cracked South Devon crab, jellied eels and potted shrimps.
The 70 seater beach hut themed restaurant adds to the chef’s current Dartmouth offering, being three doors down from the Seahorse, and partners his RockFish restaurant in Bristol – which I have tried and like very much.
“The Spanish and Italians have a great love of seafood and a respect for really good fresh food, so much so that they import a lot of fish from the UK, I want to spread the word and make sure that people here get to enjoy this amazing produce,” says Tonks. A fine sentiment.
