A buzzing atmosphere and ever-evolving menu

Open daily from 10am and rarely quiet, Hooked on the Rocks is a vibrant luxurious space where the buzz of atmosphere rivals the sound of the ocean.

Situated on the water’s edge at Swanpool beach, the restaurant’s warm and rich colour palette frames the panoramic sea views. Take a seat in teal velvet booths, or enjoy your dinner al fresco on the seafront terrace; wherever you sit, the ever-evolving menu has something for everyone.

Cutting out land miles in favour of sourcing straight from local growers and catchers, Hooked on the Rocks even has its own crab and lobster tank – replenished regularly from pots just eight miles from shore!
