Local Restaurants

Below please find details of a few local restaurants however, this list is constantly changing and further information will be sent once a booking for Brookside Guest House is received.

Rockfish - 01803 850872
Located at the top of the harbour and prehaps the closest restaurant to the source of fish in the UK.  Rockfish Brixham sits above the world famous fish market overlooking the boats as they land their catch. Fabulous views overlooking the sea. 

Shoals Restaurant on the Lido -  01803 854874
Shoals Restaurant offers fresh fish sourced locally and from their own family trawler.  They also serve meat and vegetarian dishes.  A fabulous restaurant with beautiful views over Torbay.  Very friendly and quite small so an advanced booking is a must.  Located just a 20 minute walk from the harbour although they do also have a car park.

Golden Lion Pub – 01803 469501
65 New Road, Brixham

Situated down New Road, halfway between us and the harbour, this is a fantastic local pub serving extremely good pub food.  Great choices, reasonable prices and very definitely, plentiful portions.  This pub is in a great location for when you are either wanting a quick drink on your way out into town, or alternatively, a nightcap on your way back.  We can highly recommend this very friendly local pub run by Jay & Alex.  You won’t be disappointed. 

Beamers - 01803 854777
Very nice restaurant situated within the harbour bowl and on an upper floor - stairs to get up.  Quite pricey but again,good views over the harbour.  Advanced booking essential, especially if you would like a window table.  Lots of fish but meat alternatives also. There are new owners but hopefully the standards will remain.  Definitely worth a try

Prince William - 01803 854468
A very popular pub with a lot of outdoor seating alongside the harbour.  Great views and the last place the sun sets so very popular.  Obviously for either a drink or dinner.  They serve meals outside up until about 7 pm (this is all via a QR code linking your phone to their menu - for both drinks & dinner), but you can also book tables inside and have a conventional menu experience.  Reasonably priced, very varied menu - only criticism is the food is sometimes a bit slow coming. 

Manor Pub - 07462 861674
A good pub and one of the oldest in Brixham.  Situated up a side street next to the Wine Loft - great for atmosphere and a drink and on occasions, dancing. Just started serving light bites. Thursday is Pizza night.

Simply Fish - 01803 859585
A very nice fish restaurant offering speciality fish as well as the normal "chip shop" fish.  Very popular however, a little pricey considering it is just an upmarket "fish n chip" shop .... but it is Brixham fish after all!

La Petite Maison – 01803 882811
a French restaurant – opened on the 31st March 2023   
We have now had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant and can honestly say, it is very good. The menu for dinner was great with a nice selection of classic French dishes.  The atmosphere was really good and the staff very attentive.
All in all, a great vibe and definitely one not to be missed. .    

Olive – Mediterranean Kitchen & Wine Bar
01803 882811
Very nice Tapas restaurant.  Small plates & also larger plates.  Also, a very good wine selection with tasting & wine flights available.  Definitely worth a visit if you like a relaxed atmosphere in very pleasant surroundings.  You can find Olive next door to The Mermaid pub down on the harbour front.    

AT Thai - 01803 858936
This has become a very popular choice for Thai food. Located in Middle Street offering very nice food at reasonable prices.

The Cowshed - 01803 859 679
Very nice casual restaurant serving a variety of meals, both meat and fish. 

Crusoes Restaurant – 01803 858681
14, The Quay, Brixham

Joe and I have not been to Crusoes however, we are hearing from our guests that it is a good choice of restaurant with a mixed menu.  It is located upstairs just off The Quay and has tables overlooking the harbour.  We will be going soon to try for ourselves.

Casa Nostra - 01803 411886
23 Fore Street , Brixham
This is another restaurant that Joe and I have not been to, but we have heard
great reports about it – we really must get round to going !!

There are other establishments serving food in the harbour bowl which you might wish to consider : Liberty's – serving light bites and cocktails; Rio's Fish n Chips, Brixham Fish,– apart from Liberty’s, we have not experienced any of these but they all seem to be very popular.
In addition there are some pubs serving food in the harbour bowl, namely- The Blue Anchor, The Bullers Arms, The Old Market House to name but a few. 

NB : Alberos, which used to be on this list has recently closed – we’re not aware of what might be happening to this site, but as soon as we know, we will add onto our list.
