Local fishermen on our home market at North Shields fish quay, give us an amazing supply of the freshest fish available, from lemon sole and monkfish through to plaice, haddock 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 North East ports and the UK, such as codling fillets from Peterhead and lemon sole from Brixham on the south coast, where we also source day boat prime fish including, red mullet, plaice, turbot and brill.
We are first hand buyers at the North Shields fish auction. This enables us to ensure full traceability from the vessel through to delivery into your kitchen. We also have links to other coastal auctions around the UK such as Fleetwood and Brixham
Farmed fish often features on core menu lines due 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. We have live lobster holding tanks enabling us to guarantee ultimate freshness.
