Local fishermen give us an amazing supply of the freshest fish available, from sea bass, Dover sole and skate through to grey mullet and cod. We source many other sustainable varieties when in season. During the summer we also supply lots of local lobsters, crabs and shellfish.
We work with day boat suppliers in ports all around the UK, such as codling fillets from Scarborough and lemon sole from Whitby. From the south coast we also source day boat prime fish including, red mullet, plaice, turbot and brill.
We are first hand buyers at most of the UK coastal fish auctions, enabling us to ensure full traceability from the vessel through to delivery into your kitchen. The majority of our businesses are conveniently situated near to the local auction, such as, North Shields, Fleetwood and Brixham.
Farmed fish often features on core menu lines du to its consistent quality, availability and price. To enable us to guarantee responsible sourcing, we import directly from source, such as bass and bream from Turkey, Prawns from India, Salmon from Scotland and Norway.
We only work with small, specialist operators for live shellfish. In summer months we buy lobsters and crabs from local fishermen and during the winter we import directly from North America. Our coastal businesses have live shellfish holding tanks enabling us to guarantee ultimate freshness.
