Salcombe Brewery Co. is delighted to announce that it has been chosen to be the exclusive provider of beer and cider at Rockfish’s eight waterside restaurants including their newly refurbished Brixham site which opens on 1st August. 

Salcombe Brewery owner, John Tiner explains: “We have been brewing a golden ale for Rockfish for a number of years and as two dynamic South West coastal businesses we have a great deal in common. We are thrilled that this relationship has developed to the point where we are now the sole supplier of beer, lager and cider across the Rockfish estate.” He continues: “Their customers will be able to pair their superb seafood with our fabulous new lager, perfectly balanced IPA or thirst-quenching cider, all with unique Rockfish branding that reflects both organisations’ love of the sea. We are very excited about this new partnership and the great opportunities for us both that lie ahead.

Mitch Tonks, owner of Rockfish comments: “The team at Salcombe Brewery has always impressed me with their attitude and core values. There is a lot of synergy between our two companies with both organisations being incredibly supportive of their local communities and businesses. I am very excited about this new phase in our relationship and we are already in discussions about further plans to work together. I think that our customers will reap the benefits too with our fantastic new range of beers and cider which will be available at all our sites including our flagship Brixham site, which will re-open on 1st August following a major refurbishment.”

Mitch continues: “We anticipate a very busy summer ahead and Brixham Rockfish will be the perfect venue to enjoy the freshest seafood in a socially distanced fashion as we have extended the balcony to increase our outdoor seating. There will be plenty of space to enjoy our delicious food washed down with our new range of Salcombe Brewery’s drinks.”

Using the finest British malt, Rockfish Pilsner (5.4%) has a delicate floral and herbal aroma, derived from the noble Czech and German hops. The gentle malt flavour compliments the bittersweet pallet, culminating in a crisp dry finish.  

A light session IPA with a long hoppy finish, Rockfish IPA (4.2%) uses some of the best hops the USA has to offer in Citra, Amarillo and Chinook. These hops result in a citrus driven aroma and flavour supported by hints of melon, apricot and peach. 

Celebrating a bounty of crisp, delicious West Country apples, Rockfish Sea Cider (4.5%) crashes across the taste buds in waves of lightly sparkling refreshment.  A full-bodied, traditional cider with a medium dry taste, it’s the perfect way to end the day, or start the night.

These new drinks will be exclusively available in bottles and on tap (£4.95 per pint) at Rockfish restaurants including Brixham when it reopens on 1st August .

Notes to Editor 

Salcombe Brewery

  • Salcombe Brewery Co. was founded by John and Gerry Tiner in September 2016. After 35 years of fun-filled family holidays nearby, John and Gerry moved to the area and soon discovered that the local area’s favourite beer, Shingle Bay, might be under threat, so they decided to set up a new brewery and acquire the recipe. 


  • John and Gerry had a vision to create a company ethos of an eco-friendly, locally supportive brewery making a rich variety of mouth-watering beer. They secured investment both nationally and internationally by shareholders who shared the same sense of belief in the high quality of the beer. 


  • The seahorse logo behind the brand of Salcombe Brewery Co. is representative of the fact that the Salcombe estuary is one of the few places in the UK you can find the rarer of the two species of seahorse. Inspired by local surroundings, Salcombe Brewery Co. takes pride in its local roots, which is reflected in the branding. Unique, fresh and contemporary, the seahorse is a seal of high quality represented by the beers.



  • Rockfish restaurants are located by the sea and the water and specialise in serving fresh local & sustainable seafood. The fish is selected each day at market where it is prepared on the harbourside by their skilled fishmongers and delivered each morning to the restaurants. In a further pioneering move the group now have their own boat, having joined up with local Dorset Fresh Fish in a partnership, all the fish landed is prepared by the Rockfish team and sent to the restaurants on the day it is landed.


  • The menu features classic seafood dishes and all the favourites like dressed crab, oysters, prawns and traditional fish and chips; but the real stand out is the daily selection of seafood which gets marked up the tablecloth daily. Wines and beers are selected especially to compliment seafood to complete the experience.
