Named England's Seafood Coast for good reason, The English Riviera is home to the UK's finest seafood and the world-famous Brixham Fish Market.

With access to the highest quality, freshest ingredients, it is little wonder that some of the country's top chefs choose to work in this beautiful part of the UK.

There are so many different restaurants and bars to choose from, we couldn't possibly list them all here. So, here are some of our favourites to whet your appetite!

We would always recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment.
