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.

Our favourite restaurant in the entire world. We celebrated my husband's 30th here a few years ago and were back recently for the first time since having had kids. The team never fail to make you feel super welcome, the food is fantastic and the puddings were a real highlight on this occasion. Huge thanks to Mitch, Mat and the team

As regular customers with 2 guests we experienced a very disappointing lunch on 17th September. The starter of Mozzarella and tomato was completely bland. The main fish, Dab, was tasteless and had obviously been frozen. The Red Mullet was over cooked, dry and scorched. The menu said that the lunch would include Courgette Fritti but we were served with over cooked green beans in a tomato sauce. We expect better from The Seahorse.

The Locals menu is a very welcome addition to the menu it allows for all to experience dishes they may never have seen and at an affordable price

We enjoyed a first rate meal with discerning European friends at the Seahorse. The food, wine, service and ambience couldn't be faulted, which is unusual for us as seafood professionals! We will all be back.

Love the restaurant although cramped - but that adds to the atmosphere. Service can be slow - but the kitchen is small and the food excellent so that is forgivable.

Thank you for two wonderful evening dining experiences at The Seahorse on 12th and 13th September 2019. Our first experiences of The Seahorse exceeded our expectations. Wonderful and exciting food. A sumptuous wine list. A great location and a super internal styling that really added to the ambiance. And the thing that really made it special - The Seahorse Team - everyone across the two evenings was a joy - alongside crisp and attentive customer service their 'passion' (an over-used and slightly dodgy descriptor) was evident, and it was just great to see their ambition to be the best. Oh, and did we mention the quality of the food and the overall dining experience - absolutely first class. Once again, thank you for two super evening meals and we will most certainly return on our next visit to the Dartmouth area. Kind regards, Jan and Steve Bloor

Party of six booked for 7.45pm on Saturday 14th September - we got there in good time, enjoyed pre dinner drinks in the bar - which went on a little long as we couldn't get seated until 8.15pm but nothing was spoiled. Had a wonderful dinner, good and sensible priced wines and everything cooked to perfection - we had happy, smiley faces. It's a little snug in the restaurant but not really a problem and the general atmosphere and decor all worked well. We had a little wobble when so many dishes were 'sold out' before we got to order but second and third choices encouraged us all to be a little braver than usual. so even that worked well. The only odd moment was when a lady on an adjoining table commented to her partner that 'people like that' (she was referring to our daughters boyfriend - I think the concept of a tattoo on an uncovered arm was new to her) should not be allowed to dine in restaurants like this. She realised she'd forgotten her indoor voice when we all turned round - it clearly put her off her dessert and she promptly left. There's no accounting for folk - it gave us cause for another laugh. Overall a great restaurant -
