Cornish Lobster really are the king of the Shellfish. During the season, they are delivered daily to us from a select lobster pot fleet, who catch these critters in pots dotted around the rocky Cornish coastline.
A beautifully delicate, subtle-sweet flavour which is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted, our lobsters are a supreme choice to treat your taste buds.
They arrive pre-cooked and ready to devour, in our opinion needing nothing but a little butter, some lemon and a pinch of sea salt.
We are committed to sustainable fishing practices. Our Cornish Lobsters are recommended by the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, and we also donate £1 to the National Lobster Hatchery for every kg of Lobster we sell, as part of their ‘Buy One Set One Free' which helps replenish stocks.
Sustainable, delicious and nutritious – what’s not to love about Lobster?

Sometimes, depending on the landings on the day of dispatch we might have to substitute a large lobster for two small-medium lobsters. However, the expected amount of meat will be the same.
