Fish at Mitch Tonks' "Rockfish" will all be locally sourced.

A new sustainable seafood restaurant is coming to Weymouth at what was the Dorothy Inn.

Rockfish is the creation of top chef Mitch Tonks – and promises to offer something for everyone. Opening on 8th August it promises to be ‘in between a chippie and a top-end restaurant'.

Mitch said the aim  is to be truly local: "We'll be using locally-caught fish direct from the harbour here and cooking it in the restaurant, and fish such as cod will come from a large sustainable stock in Norway, which is MSC certified. We'll be employing between 30 and 50 people, all recruited locally.

"We really want Rockfish to feel like a part of the community and are  getting involved with and donating to local charities here, such as the RNLI."
