Brand-new seafood restaurant Rockfish joins Poole Quay

Rockfish — a brand new seafood restaurant is coming to Poole Quay today! But just what is so special about it? Read on to find out…

The seafood restaurant chain Rockfish announced plans to open a restaurant in Poole back in May last year. And, as of today, it has replaced the Purbeck Pottery site after a full refurbishment and £1.5m investment. Now it’s ready to grace our taste buds. With a beautiful view waiting just outside.

The Rockfish group, which also has several restaurants in Devon, prides itself in ‘fresh, local and sustainable seafood’. All the restaurants are plastic- and palm oil-free, with fully gluten-free dishes on their menus.

What’s more, Rockfish also catch and cook their own fish. Their produce is sourced from Brixham Fish Market, (where Rockfish has its very own fishing boat) and local fishermen. From there, the chefs cook the fish on a planch, over a char-grill, or, of course, by traditionally frying. The restaurant will serve its much-loved fish and chips, in addition to a range of seafood which includes whole sea bass, prawns and Dover sole. Rockfish will also serve a local delicacy — Portland pearl oysters, meaning there is an incredible selection and variety available.

What Does the Founder Say?

Rockfish’s founder is none other than Mitch Tonks, a successful restaurateur. Speaking in a Facebook video promoting the new restaurant, he spoke of one of the restaurant’s big features – its open kitchen. Some of the seating in the restaurant has even been specially positioned so that guests may have a view of its splendour. It will also feature bar service and, as with every Rockfish restaurant, a log fire. Perfect for those cold winter days!

So what are you waiting for? If this article alone isn’t enough to convince you to endeavour into Rockfish, go and see for yourself! The restaurant opens Monday 27th January with bookings for February available now.

More information is available on their website. Similarly, you can find out more on their Facebook page. Or otherwise inquire, simply by calling 01202 836255. There are also further stories from the Catering and Hospitality world here. And don’t forget to follow HQB Media on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to never miss a post!
