Wishing you all a Happy New Year.


Due to the new tier restrictions taking place country wide we have had to make the difficult decision that we will not be opening the business as planned on the 4th of January.


We will instead be monitoring the tier systems, when they look like they will be eased we will look at setting a date for reopening the business.  Please bear with us. This is a horrible but unprecedented time, and will be taking this opportunity to carry out some needed refurbishment to the factory to continue our search for perfection. Your support as always has been incredible and for this we are truly humbled. We can’t wait to get back to it and servicing you with the best that Cornwall has to offer.


Our best wishes go out to you and your teams and look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care and stay safe.

Johnny and the Flying Fish Team
