Fish of the week
St Austell Bay Mussels
Can be bought in Nets of 2 Kilo or 5 Kilo.
Our Mussels are one of the most consistent and prized assists we stock.
Supplied from ‘St Austell Bay’ only ten miles away and grown in the nutrient rich gulf stream, these Mussels are suspended off the sea floor creating a clean shelled and deliciously plump Mussel.
Over the years the growth of the mussels has created a marine aqua culture in the area, and now the waters are teaming with creatures and sea life.
They require little to no prep and are quite simply one of the most beautiful products the Cornish coast can provide.

Large ‘Salcombe Bay’ Crabs
Available in from 1-2kg!
These living tanks of the sea can reach monstrous sizes in the sheltered bay South of Devon. They are fished exclusively with pots, arguably the most sustainable form of fishing.
With their unique rich flavour, the edible Brown Crab can improve a dish with a relatively small amount of its meat. Often overlooked for the more expensive Lobster, Crab is a must for all diehard seafood fans.
We recommend following the RSPCA’s preferred method of despatch which involves stunning the crab in the freezer prior cooking.

Cornish ‘Day Boat’ Squid
Mainly landed in Looe market
Available in sizes from baby to Large
Looe ‘Day Boat’ has been providing us with some fantastic Squid.
They enjoy the cold waters and are fast growing creatures making them a great sustainable option for your menus.
Handline is the most common capture method, also known as ‘Jigging’ for squid.
This is done just off shore and has little impact on other sea creatures or species, producing a fine quality and fresh catch.
