The Caterer and its partner Seafish UK have published the shortlist for their Restaurant of the Year Competition in 2017. With an emphasis on fish and shellfish, the competition was set up to recognise knowledgeable front-of-house staff and excellence in the kitchen for the preparation and presentation of seafood.
This year’s shortlist includes:
• The Idle Rocks (Cornwall)
• The Kilted Lobster
• Ninth Wave (Isle of Mull)
• The Old Boat House
• Rockfish (Brixham)
• Rocksalt (Folkestone)
• The Salt Room (Brighton)
• The Staith House (North Shields)
• The Three Chimneys (Isle of Skye)
• Wright Brothers (Spitalfields)
These restaurants will be visited by a mystery shopper from Seafish UK in the coming weeks and will be judged on the facilities, the service and the food. These scores will be combined with the scores from earlier rounds and submitted to the judges for a final decision.
