But can you guess which one of the county’s many top destinations it is?

An eatery in Kent has been shortlisted as one of the top seafood restaurants in the country.

Rocksalt in Folkestone will learn next month if it will be crowned winner of the Seafood Restaurant of the Year competition, organised by seafood industry champion Seafish and industry magazine The Caterer.

It lines up alongside:

Ninth Wave on the Isle of Mull in Argyll and Bute

The Idle Rocks at St. Mawes, Cornwall

The Salt Room in Brighton, and

The Staith House in North Shields, Tyne and Wear

The judging panel, comprising of food experts, said the final five “demonstrate great service, fish and shellfish species knowledge and are seen as ambassadors to other restaurants in the UK who have an ambition to sell more fish and shellfish on their menus”.

Andy Gray, trade marketing manager for Seafish, said: “The competition provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wide range of restaurants, pubs and cafés that are excelling in providing customers with top quality fish and shellfish dining experiences.”

The overall UK winner will be announced in October.
