The Seahorse


The Seahorse

Mitch Tonks’s award-winning Dartmouth restaurant specialises in seafood that comes straight off the boat, cooked over charcoal. Never have I tasted monkfish as juicy and as fresh as the one I sampled here. No surprise here then that The Seahorse has often been described as one of the best seafood restaurants in the country. In the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2019 best restaurant category it was a runner up.

Burgh Island Hotel

Agatha Christie, Lord Mountbatten, Noel Coward and Josephine Baker all stayed at this wonderful Art Deco hotel. You can find out more by reading the signed copy of “Great White Palace” by Aveton Gifford resident Tony Porter, upstairs in the top bedroom bookshelf at 2 Court Cottages. His story is riveting. If you don’t want a formal dinner there’s always the Pilchard Inn.
