About The Seahorse
Our restaurant, situated on the banks of the River Dart in Dartmouth, specialises in seafood cooked over an open charcoal fire. We are lucky to have some of the best fish and shellfish in the world landed here right here and in the fish market over the water in Brixham. In addition to our full menu we offer a locals menu, 3 courses for £20 which is served at lunchtimes and until 7pm excluding Saturday night, we are also open for long relaxing Sunday lunches.
We have an extensive wine list of over 180 bins, all carefully chosen for seafood and we open a selection each day to serve by the glass, so there is always something different to try.
Guests are invitied to take a drink, before or after their meal, in Joe's bar at The Seahorse; it is a delightful cosy place to begin or end a meal with us. For a more private dining experience our beautiful room, "The Cantina", is available for booking for up to 14 guests and you can tailor your menu and booking to create the best event to suit you.
We offer a warm atmoshpere and friendly service and families are most welcome to dine with us.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Perhaps not your most frequent customer but certainly a very appreciative one. My wife and I spend time in Salcombe when down from London but will travel to The Seahorse as often as we are able to. Our meal on Tuesday with our guests one of the best ever. The food exquisite and our evening helped by your welcoming top manager, Chuba (spelling?) and your wonderful staff - Matilda, Jo and Abbey, all of whom were most friendly and engaging. Looking forward to our next visit which rather unusually is next week with friends. Regards, Bob Dyson.
Amazing fish, beautifully cooked. You delivered a relaxed and happy atmosphere. Thanks for the experience.
We were nicely surprised that the standard of the food and the service were exceptionally high. It was like dining in London.
Always a joy to eat at The Seahorse. Our favourite restaurant...
We love the restaurant Having just returned from a 10 day sailing trip to France we squeezed into the last cover and enjoyed such a memorable crew supper Thank you
Exceptional food as ever with such imaginative courses. Yesterday’s cured bream was sensational. Sue
Overall a very enjoyable meal; good service and food. The restaurant feels slightly cramped and it would have ben good to be bale to have one of the specials for the day for one, rather than have to have it for both.
Another great night with friends at our favourite Devon restaurant. Anglea Hartnell as the Guest chef was a real bonus and the set menu was superb. The waiting and bar personnel are excellent, a real credit to Mitch Tonks.
Initially, well done on seeking a review since it suggests you genuinely care about feedback. I bought my family to the restaurant yesterday. My wife and I had the charcoal John Dory, the children the fish and chips and tomato pasta. The amuse bouche was fab as was the anchovy butter. The rest of the meal was very good although I spoke to the Maitre d about the size portion of John Dory. Please don’t get me wrong. We eat out in very good restaurants all the time and therefore have a reasonably good understanding of what to expect however I felt a little let down by what I thought was too small a piece of fish. I freely admit that I probably only eat fish 1 in every 4 meals but this particular dish was at best inconsiderable. The Maitre d handled it impeccably. I was adamant that I didn’t want the dish written off nor did I want a free desert. I run my own business and simply believe in giving feedback for good or for bad. Despite this, when the bill arrived it had a 10% discount. Class! During our discussion I questioned whether restaurants had a ‘size guide’ for portions of fish and was told that that was not the case. I find this interesting because one of the main reasons fish is consumed less by male clients in restaurants offering a wide variety of food is that it is less substantial. If, like steaks, certain fish are detailed by size, it may prove more interesting. I, for one, would eat a lot more if I knew the fish in question was going to satisfy me. I may be a lone voice (probably am) and I may have misjudged the situation. Regardless, the way the feedback was tackled was excellent, truly excellent and that was representative of all staff. The food was wonderful and we liked how the restaurant had kept its traditional decor etc. We will be back soon without question. Thanks again and all the very best. You deserve to do well.
One of the best restaurants in the country, food and service top notch
Fab as always. The ray wing was superb. Thank you and see you again soon.
Nice food and very good service but a little overpriced
Very good service
We visit every year when stay in Salcombe, never disappointed, keep up the good work.
Great fresh baked fish & local produce. As the restaurant got busier the service seemed to slip, We dined on a Thursday evening and all tables were booked,
Outstanding service & great food
another outstanding meal..Worth a long journey to experience so many precise flavours.
A stunning evening for us both..... amazing staff and wonderful atmosphere..... we will be back next time we are in Dartmouth! Thank you!
The table for four was quite cramped. It was cold with the AC on and the door open! I had specified that the reservation was for a 50th birthday celebration but there was nothing to indicate that had been noted. The double espresso was a small americano, there. We’d to be some barista training.
Excellent experience. Friendly service going the extra mile. We always enjoy coming and look forward to returning soon.
Superb Clams as a starter All the fish we had was excellent! Staff are very attentive and the place has a great buzzing atmosphere if your in Dartmouth you must book for dinner at the seahorse
It is as always fabulous. Everything is right about it. The attention to detail is superb. I cannot think of a better restaurant for lunch.
Amazing food as always; totally relaxing and laid back atmosphere; brilliant air conditioning! Chef very kindly did spaghetti vongoles for the birthday boy! Many thanks.
