Rockfish Devon wins Best Restaurant award
RockFish Seafood & Chips in Dartmouth scooped the award for Best New Restaurant in this year’s Devon Life Food & Drink awards at last night’s awards ceremony held at Sandy Park in Exeter. RockFish beat off competition from all other new restaurants in the county to whom the award was open to make the final shortlist of 3 restaurants going on to win.
Owners Mitch Tonks and Mat Prowse were delighted, Mitch said, “This is a great success for us and the whole team who have worked really hard since opening in June to make RockFish the place to eat fish and chips. We’ve had over 30,000 eating with us since we opened and big thanks must go those customers who are Devon Life readers who have given us this big stamp of approval, we’re thrilled!”
RockFish is also shortlisted in the final four for the Best Newcomer in the UK-wide Seafish National Fish & Chip Awards which takes place in January.
Mitch and longstanding business partner Mat Prowse opened this family seafood restaurant just a few doors along from their acclaimed Seahorse restaurant on the South Embankment in Dartmouth in June this year aiming to provide top quality but affordable local fried fish. The uber chic interior of this 70 seater restaurant has a beach feel about it and diners can choose from regular favourites such as cod and haddock and local fish from the market including
whiting, lemon sole & gurnard which are all served up in stylish card take away style boxes.
