Rockfish Brixham, Devon

About Us

Rockfish is a speciality, sustainable seafood restaurant set in beautiful Brixham on the English Riviera. Whether you’d like oysters, Dover sole and a bottle of Chablis for a special occasion or fish and chips for lunch after walking the dog, Rockfish brings seafood to everyone for all occasions.

As we sit above the world famous Brixham fish market, we have possibly the freshest fish in the UK. Downstairs, the boats land their catch to be delivered to the kitchen within the hour. We also have a Rockfish Trawler in Broxham skippered by Nick Ricj from whom we buy his entore daily catch. The smaller boats begin landing from around 5pm each day and its an exciting sight to see fish of all shapes and sizes coming ashore. Sit outside on the terrace and watch as the fishing fleet offload their catch, or relax inside and enjoy the hubbub of the open view kitchen. Either way, dining at Rockfish is definitely an experience of sea to plate the same day.

Rockfish is set amongst two floors, downstairs there is a takeaway and café selling seafood breakfasts and upstairs is a restaurant and terrace with table service by our friendly team. The terrace boasts beautiful views across the English Riviera and an exciting hustle and bustle of the fisherman coming ashore with their trawlers.

Our menu includes fish and seafood of all variety, from traditional fish and chips to Brixham crab and for every meal, we offer unlimited chips! We also have vegan and gluten free options available and a children’s menu that will please even the fussiest of eaters! We have a full bar with South West ales, a fantastic selection of quality wines and ice-cold Estrella Galicia – an excellent beer to accompany seafood.

The South Coast lands some of the best fish on the planet everyday. At the heart of fishing in the South West, and conveniently sitting right underneath our restaurant, is the Fish Market in Brixham, where every morning buyers from all over the world look to secure some of the catch. Our fish is selected by us each day at market where it is prepared on the harbourside by our skilled fishmongers and delivered each morning to our restaurant. We buy a selection of the best of the landings each day, from gurnard, to lemon sole and lobster. If we don’t have your favourite today, its probably still in the sea!

Rockfish is situated in Brixham, a small yet bustling fishing town offering plenty to see and do. Brixham Harbour is known for being a great place to crab. So why not head down to the local shops, buy a crabbing kit and try your hand at crabbing before relaxing in Rockfish to refresh with some perfectly cooked seafood – a perfect way to make the most of the seaside!

“The food was amazing and would highly recommend for seafood lovers, and don’t forget the bottomless chips. Whilst waiting for our service, which was great for a Friday evening, we watched the fishing boats come and go and were even treated to a few sightings of Seals in the harbour right by the restaurant, which our 2 year old daughter loved.”

 “Visited Brixham for the day and stopped here for a light bite to eat and drinks. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and helpful.”

 “We were recommended The Bridge (the dining area within The Rockfish) as a great vantage point to watch the fishermen unloading their day's catch while enjoying our dinner and it was great advice. This kept the kids, and the adults, transfixed!”
