Lobster has a sweet flavour and succulent flesh, perfect if you’re wanting to celebrate something special, and is still in our selection of seasonal favourites!



Widely considered to be one of the most highly prized fish in the sea and caught along the Sussex coastline by our inshore day boat fleet, turbot has a delicious subtle flavour with vibrant and firm flesh.



Our outstanding quality palourde clams, harvested along the Dorset shoreline and cleaned and purified in natural seawater. These are delicious cooked in a number of ways and are full of vitamins and minerals.


Mackerel is a delightful, oily fish packed full of Omega-3, B-Vitamins and Vitamin D. It fantastic for BBQ-ing has a strong fish flavour, the right balance of sweet and salty.
