WINNER: Rockfish, Torquay

In 2010, Mitch Tonks and Mat Prowse opened the first Rockfish in Dartmouth. Now, five years on, they have opened more restaurants in seaside towns including in Torquay, where freshly landed fish from Brixham fish market is cooked to perfection with a special children’s menu and ‘fish rock’ fun books for little ones.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: The Victoria Inn, Salcombe

Offering a children’s menu which serves ‘the smallest guests exactly the same quality of food as the grown-ups’, everything at the Victoria Inn is freshly cooked using local Devon produce.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: The Waie Inn Credition

Located in Zeal Monochorum, this popular country pub has plenty of family friendly facilities, from indoor and outdoor play areas to squash courts and snooker tables, there is something to please the whole family come rain or shine.
