Catch Review: ‘I think I just went to the best restaurant in the world’
Mike’s cooking is unquestionably Michelin one star, heading towards one and a half, lacking only the breadth of choice and extra flimflam the tyre-floggers crave’

Catch at the Old Fish Market offers a unique, sea-to-plate dining experience drawn from the clear waters of the Dorset coast, serving freshly caught fish and shellfish with an unequivocal local provenance, in a landmark setting amidst the colour and energy of a working quayside.


Executive Chef Mike Naidoo combines his Michelin star background with a love of clean flavours and fresh, seasonal ingredients. His dynamic kitchen team uses contemporary cooking techniques to showcase the finest local produce.


Our changing menus reflect the diversity of the seasons, the weather and the tides, featuring fresh, simply prepared seafood, locally sourced game, and natural and farmed ingredients from regional artisan growers and producers.


"We have travelled across many countries, taking the opportunity to enjoy some of the best-known Michelin-starred restaurants. Catch equalled that. The presentation was exceptional, the flavour combinations beautifully paired and the service was wonderful. I cannot recommend you more than I intend to."


Sourcing locally matters. It means we get to know our suppliers well and understand their philosophy and approach. It supports the local community and economy, and it limits our environmental impact. With the Weymouth fleet landing right outside the restaurant, we measure most of our food miles in feet and inches.
