Dartmouth and Kingswear Food and Drink

Renowned for it’s fine food you won’t have to look very hard to discover a range of restaurants offering local seafood and fresh crab. Local chef and restauranteur Mitch Tonks has several eateries in Dartmouth which will suit every occasion and budget. If it’s a special celebration then book a table at his Seahorse restaurant, a real gem and very popular during the summer months. Locally landed fish and seafood are cooked on an open charcoal grill. 

If you fancy a more informal experience but equally delicious try his Rockfish Restaurant a few doors down where during the colder months the atmosphere is complemented by a roaring log fire.The café bar and restaurant Banyards Inn Cove offer food from morning until night with delicious cooked breakfasts, home cooked lunches and an evening menu full of locally sourced products. 

If you like a more relaxed atmosphere then head straight for Café Alf Rescos, a popular destination for locals, sailors and visitors alike. With its freshly cooked food and regular live music be prepared to queue in the summer months for an outside table at this quirky Dartmouth café. 

No matter the weather, rain or shine, Dartmouth is an exciting town just waiting to be explore
