We don't often eat fish and chips and it is probably because we live a long way from Rockfish! Would definitely recommend for lunch.

Very busy, bustling place. Good service and excellent, simple fresh fish. Tap water immediately put on the tables, gives a nice welcoming atmosphere. Speedy service without rushing.

Nice seafood restaurant next to Dartmouth pier. Kids friendly with nice interior and good atmosphere. For starter we had roasted scallop and dressed crab and they were good. For main I had a jake fillet and it was nicely cooked, you could tell it was fresh. My wife had a shellfish platter and she said that fried crabs were the best and the rest was just ok. Chips were average, nothing special. I had a bottle of Dorset gold and it was very refreshing, worth a try. We paid around 60 pounds and think it is overpriced for fish and chips. Service was quick and efficient despite no empty seats. Recommend to visit with kids!

work some exercise in to your holiday if you opt for a cornwall and devon break, we racked up 5 fish and chip stops, having sampled stien's in st ives we were ready to be kind to rockfish not expecting to be blown away - but suprisingly it was really very very good!
We loved the beach hut interior, not too themy. Good menu with lots of variety and a selection of specials. salad was crisp and tasty with a lovely dressing, the fish light and milky and the chips fat and plentiful with extra for those who wanted them.
We didn't find it overprised, 60 quid for 4 with drinks - not too shabby I say.

I don't dispute the beauty of Dartmouth town or the freshness and quality of the ingredients this place serves. But I do get irked at how much they charge for the volume of food they serve. I paid £22 for a seafood platter that was basically half a dozen King Prawns, a handful of regular prawns and a saucer of cockles. They are charging West End London prices for absurdly tight portion sizes. Not a smart strategy. So look around at the neighboring non chain restaurants, they will get their fish from the same market but will probably value your custom more and not be so greedy on the prices. Oh and the staff were pretty crap too...basically a bunch of well educated sixth form students as opposed to trained restaurant staff.
