“Excellent food, pleasant experience”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

The fish is excellent and portions are generous. If you are hungry/greedy enough to clear your plate you can have extra chips for free, which is a bonus. Adult meals are a little pricey and ale is extortionate, but kids meals are good value. Only grumble would be that at least one of the three so-called 'Dartmouth fish' invariably seem to be unavailable so the 'Dartmouth Platter' usually includes substitutes. Service can also be a little dodgy, but only because they are so busy. All-in-all, a pleasant experience.

“Rock on Rockfish.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Ok so I'm not going to beat about the bush here. This is the best fish and chips you can get period. Great menu offering not only traditional fish & chips but a selection of other fishy goodies for you to enjoy. Great friendly service and good value. If you find yourself in Dartmouth and in need of fish and chips you know where to go.

“Great concept”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had a fantastic meal at this trendy restaurant. We shared a pint of prawns which were super sweet followed by traditional fish and chips, served simply and as they should be. We could see this popular concept taking off around the country.

“A must when you're in dartmouth - lovely staff!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I've been using rockfish regularly since they opened in plymouth and dartmouth and can quite honestly say, best fish and chips in the west.
But, there's more, this place needn't be considered as a "posh chippy" as it has far more to offer - great seasonal, locally sourced menu, (I always order oysters, from the river yealm 10miles away) friendly staff, excellent wine list and sea cider (local cider specially made for rockfish) and a great loyalty scheme (1 stamp every £15spent, 10stamps = £10 off).
If your stuck for what to eat, choose the "dartmouth platter" a selection of three of the days fish, cooked to your liking for 12.99.
I couldn't be more positive about my experience, thank you!
