England’s Seafood FEAST 2019

Following the success of the inaugural event in 2018, the English Riviera BID are once again cooking up England’s Seafood FEAST, a banquet for all the senses.

From 20th September to 6th October, businesses will be showcasing some of the best seafood in the world alongside the very best the English Riviera has to offer. This isn’t a conventional festival with a big marquee – instead you can enjoy a whole range of things to eat and do at venues across Brixham, Paignton and Torquay.

Brixham events include:

Seafood FEAST Sea Creature Hunt – a family-friendly, fishy-themed treasure hunt around Berry Head nature reserve, organised by the Guardhouse Cafe and Hunts Cider.

Love to share seafood at Breakwater Bistro – showcasing the very best of the south-west’s seafood with wine or beer to match.

Seafood Cruise on Provident and Leader  – guest chefs will be stepping on board heritage sailing vessels Leader (1892) and Provident (1924) offering three-course seafood feasts as part of a weekend cruise.

Sail on board Vigilance heritage sailing trawler – spend 3 hours aboard the last heritage sailing trawler to be built in Brixham, the beautiful Vigilance. Submerge yourself in history, and appreciate just how hard the ‘three men and a boy’ who crewed the boat worked to bring home the day’s catch.

Seafood Supper Club at The Curious Kitchen  – enjoy the very best seafood in a special 6-course edition of The Curious Kitchen’s supper club

The Rockfish Seafood Feast – a fabulous long leisurely seafood lunch at Rockfish in Brixham. Feast on a the finest shellfish extravaganza and enjoy live music from Mark Ely. With a chilled glass of Prosecco on arrival and unrivalled views over the harbour.

Brixham Fish Market is at the heart of England’s Seafood Coast. It’s a good place to start your own personal Feast – take an early-morning tour of the only live fish auction in the country, followed by breakfast at Mitch Tonks’ Rockfish Restaurant next door. This truly unique experience gives a new perspective on the fish on your plate – it is hugely popular.

Look out also for cookery workshops, wine tastings and coastal foraging.
