You’re in for a treat with Rockfish’s three new exciting desserts. At the top of Monday’s new dessert menu at Rockfish is a quirky take on a Devon Cream Tea in the form of a deep fried doughnut filled with clotted cream and strawberry jam. You have to try this! Luckily for me, I did; the light sugary coated ball is cut in half and … Continue reading New Desserts on the Menu at Rockfish – by Sue Stoneman
The 19th December 2016 is a day I remember with great fondness – it was the beginning of my 2 week Christmas break from work, and the diary entry for the evening contained the ‘Rockfish Exmouth VIP Opening Night Party’. I had previously eaten at a few restaurant reincarnations within the building at the harbour end of Exmouth, but they weren’t doing it completely right, … Continue reading 10 Questions for Mitch Tonks – Restaurateur, Chef and Author

Featured photo courtesy of Rockfish It could be argued that Exmouth is going through a mini-renaissance with eating places. Over the last couple of years, great local names like Las Saveurs and The Chronicle have been joined by Oddfellows Exmouth, Ruby Kitchen and now Rockfish Exmouth, which opened on the seafront just before Christmas. What used to be an aptly named restaurant (The Waterfront) is … Continue reading Rockfish Exmouth: the opening night – by Lauren Heath
Exeter isn’t a large city, and eventually things get back to me about restaurants in Exeter that are either truly amazing places to eat or should be just avoided. And one thing that comes back to me quite often is the varying experiences of friends of ours who have visited The Malt House. Take a trip to Trip Advisor and you see a worrying consensus. … Continue reading The Malt House (Harvester), St Thomas, Exeter (3/5)

I love the way that food is so strongly linked to memories. For me, it has the same effect as smell and can mentally regress you to a time when life was good, with no bills to pay, major life changing things yet to come and your whole existence just waiting for you. Oddly enough this rather dramatic thought, especially for a humble foodblog like … Continue reading Haldon Forest Diner, Haldon Hill, A38 4/5
It has been a chippy since 1977, but the latest incarnation of this Fish and Chip shop has seen it spruced up and rebranded in to The Clock Tower Fish Bar. So, what did I have? Well I had chips. I was here to see how their chips fared up to the previous visit, when it was the Dolphin Fish Bar. And to be honest, … Continue reading The Clock Tower Fish Bar, Queen Street
The Barbican is foodie’s wet dream. Crammed on to a relatively small portion of land, lies a gastronomic plenty with so much choice your head is likely to pop just thinking about it. Pubs, seafood, Mexican, Chinese, Greek. And it was here we found ourself in the pouring rain, looking for a dry and reasonably priced establishment after a kiddy filled day at the National … Continue reading Special Dispatch: The Ship Inn, The Barbican, Plymouth.
Lynton and Lynmouth sits on the North Devon coast. It has a rugged windswept beauty that most little towns in that part of the world posses. Tucked under the gigantic cliffs that is created as Exmoor collides with the Bristol Channel, it is only accessible via a network of windy roads which during the summer months are full of buses, cars and camper-vans all heading … Continue reading Special Dispatch: Fish On The Harbour, Lynmouth, Devon.
Dart’s Farm is a curious place, because unlike many people who might read this, I remember when it was still Picfresh. Right, so lets go back 20 years ago and Ronald Dart owned a funny little farm shop that, in my mind, was always tacked on to the side of a larger barn. That barn is roughly where the Deli is now and if you … Continue reading Dart’s Farm (Deli Cafe – 5/5)
