The Best Brixham Restaurants For Dinner

If we are discussing Brixham restaurants, then we must start by mentioning the seafood.  The town is the hub of England’s Seafood Coast and, therefore, fish is big business in the town.  The Fish Market is located on the harbourside, where lots of Brixham restaurants by their fish daily to serve for your dinner! But if fish is not your thing, don’t be concerned, there are endless other great options to choose from.  Offering not only sophisticated restaurants but also top-notch fish and chip shops, the town has a great reputation for its dining options.  Be sure to check them out on Your Devon Escape!
