It's About Sustainability

We stock a wide selection of fresh fish, ranging from the simple fresh herring to the more exotic. We are very aware of sustainability and buy all our fish from a responsible source. We support the inshore fishermen who take pride in the environment in which they work, and these fishermen are actively helping to protect the future of our seas by taking time to tag lobsters and record stock levels whilst they are fishing.

It's About Source

We buy from many different suppliers including our very good friends Thomas and Melody Large, who live in the lovely coastal village of Brancaster. Thomas's family have been running their boat for many generations out of the small quay of Brancaster, supplying freshly caught Norfolk crab, lobster and mussels to the local restaurants and people.
The season for Brancaster mussels is between September and April. In-between the seasons we buy Scottish rope mussels, so the wonderful recipe "mussels in white wine" can be enjoyed throughout the year.
