The Observer Food Monthly Awards celebrate the best of British food & drink, from cheap eats, local pubs and suppliers to cocktails. Voted for by readers of the paper the awards are if nothing else a good barometer of what’s hot and what’s not among the liberal cognoscenti.

This year’s best restaurant award has gone to The Seahorse in Dartmouth, which is for one member of the Me:Mo team is pretty much their favourite restaurant in the country.

Great seafood in a fabulous room – it is simply the most perfect place. The restaurant is run by Mitch Tonks and Matt Prowse, men who know the importance of great hospitality!

If you haven’t been it is well worth the trip. Be prepared to never want to eat anywhere else again.
