Fish of the week
Whole Cornish Brill
Sizes from 1 - 4 Kilo!
Sweet Flavoured and Delicate
Brill are large flat fish caught in the South West Atlantic. A close relative of the Turbot family, their taste, texture and even appearance are sometimes confused.
Landed by small day boats mainly in Looe and Brixham market, the common size for Brill is between 2-3 Kilos.
Cornish Brill stocks are strong in our waters and is not only fantastic tasting but also a fully sustainable menu choice!
These fish can be caught by a variety of different methods but we try where possible to only buying them from boats using Gill Nets. This technique enables smaller species and juvenile fish to swim through unharmed making it a far more sustainable option.

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 Monkfish Tails
High meat yield
Mainly landed in Looe market
Available sizes ranging from 250grams up to 4 kilo plus!
Monk or Anglerfish, is a seabed ambush hunter that may not be the best looker in the ocean, but certainly turns out to be one of the tastiest and most versatile fish in the sea!
The Cornish/Devon coast is arguably the best fishing grounds in the UK for the specie. Best examples are always caught by short trip small day boats and during the autumn it lands as best as it can be!
“Tails” go to the market ranging from 250 grams up to 4 kilos, so there is a size that can fit the dish you want to create!

Day Boat Cod
Caught using sustainable methods
Available sizes range from 5 to 10 kilo Plus!
Cod comes into its own this time of year! They prefer colder waters of the North Atlantic and the Cornish coast is a perfect environment for them to thrive.
In recent years the ‘Trevose Box’ has come into action by local fisherman, banning all fishing in an area off the North coast of Cornwall during the early spring. This gives the fish more of a chance to reproduce and spawn.
The bright white, flaky flesh of Cod works well with many different cooking styles and flavours, a perfect edition to any menu!
