Plockton Inn

Innes Street, Plockton, Ross-shire, tel: 01599 544 222

A hundred metres from Plockton harbour, this friendly village inn does a roaring trade in locally caught seafood, much of which is smoked in its own smokehouse


The Old School House, Stane Street, Ockley, Surrey, tel: 01306 627 430

Bill Bryce opened this destination pub and fish restaurant some 16 years ago. Powered by crowd-pleasers such as red mullet on crab risotto, it's still going strong

Kealy's Seafood Bar

The Harbour, Greencastle, County Donegal, tel: 00 353 (0)74 938 1010

Across the road from the pier, James Kealy's popular pub-restaurant serves up fresh fish straight off the boats. The seafood chowder alone is worth a detour
