Like most of coastal areas of Devon, Seaton and its neighbouring village, Beer, there is a heavy emphasis on seafood with many of the restaurants and eateries specialising in freshly caught local fish and shellfish. If you’re in the area for a few days, make sure to stop by one of the many seafront restaurants for some traditional fish and chips! We know not everyone likes fish and seafood, and if that’s you, you don’t have to feel left out or go hungry during your time in Seaton. The majority of restaurants have plenty of alternatives to fish, with many of them offering separate menus for those that are gluten-free and vegan. With the rise in awareness of allergies and food intolerances, restaurants will often work with guests who need to make changes to the dishes, so don’t be afraid to ask.
A mix of chains and independents
Seaton has a great mix of restaurants from the familiar sounding names you see on the high street to the independent establishments, giving you excellent choice. The independent restaurants and eateries are usually run by local people who are really passionate about the town, so will make sure that they provide incredible service and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Because Seaton is such a beautiful area, wherever you choose to have your meal will have an incredible view. Whether you want to have a view of the ocean and the calming sound of waves in the background or you want to be surrounded by greenery with the charming scent of wildflowers, you’ll find the ideal location for dinner. Seaton has plenty of things to do all year long and the restaurants offer seasonal menus, so whenever you choose to visit, you’ll find lots of fun activities and tasty dishes. Visiting in the summer months will allow you to sit and dine alfresco where you can enjoy the sun on your face and the chance to people watch while coming in the colder months will give you the chance to cosy up to a crackling fire. A great way to enjoy the winter months is by dining in a hotel’s onsite restaurant where you can hide away from the cold air and socialise without having to step outside. The hotel restaurants offer just as diverse a menu range and excellent service as the individual restaurants that can be found around town and are often an excellent choice for those travelling with young children.
Whatever you’re in the mood for, rest assured that the dishes served in Seaton are made from the very best ingredients on offer.
