Fresh fish cooked over the charcoal fire is our speciality. Fish is delivered daily from the South Coast for sale in our fishmongers and to enjoy in the restaurant. For a fantastic day out all day cookery schools are fun on Mondays. The RockFish Grill & Seafood Market is all about seriously fresh fish, with the latest catch delivered each day. Simple and mouth-watering grilled fish and steaks cooked over a charcoal fire to give them a unique, delicious Mediterranean flavour. The menu changes daily but expect to find dishes like Dartmouth crab, dressed to order, a plate of mixed fried seafood, bream cooked in paper with roasted garlic and thyme and family favourites like fish and chips. The focus is on fantastic fresh cooked food in relaxed and informal surroundings. Great food for all of the family, get the kids trying something new and cracking a crab or tucking into seafood spaghetti, they’ll love the counter at the Seafood market and comfy banquette seating; whilst adults can eat top quality seafood and a wine list to match.

Brasserie Blanc offers simple, high quality food in a welcoming environment. Few restaurants cater to the needs of children and their eating habits as well as this. Raymond Blanc’s passion for delighting customers spreads throughout the organisation. The Cheltenham branch is situated in the old ballroom of the Queen’s Hotel, a grand room reminiscent of the Grandes Brasseries of Paris.
The Beaminster Brasserie is at the heart of the BridgeHouse Hotel - a small, relaxed 13th Century country town hotel. Apart from amazingly healthy food made from Dorset produce, the Beaminster is renowned for its outdoor eating area beneath a vaulted canvass roof - a great place for families to eat without the fear of upsetting others and great once the kids either finish eating or lose patience as they can enjoy the garden while the grown-ups continue to relax with their food!
