Top Chefs agree that pallourde or manilla clams as they are also known have the finest flavour of all clams. We collect our clams from our supplier daily, ensuring we always have really fresh ones for you to enjoy. Mostly they are similar in size to a 50p piece and have a stunning flavour of the sea.

We buy our purified Manilla clams direct from a small co-op of fisherman based near Helston in Cornwall. Each day one of our fish buyers drops in and collects the days clams; now that's fresh! There are odd times of the year when our supply is a bit sporadic but generally its pretty good.
