Hooray! The Cornish Lobster season has officially started…

Yes, it’s official! The pots have been out and are filling up nicely and today we received our first delivery of Andrew’s fabulous Native lobsters. The weather was a little challenging on Monday, but he managed to pull in a few pots and the little beauties arrived with us this morning.

Andrew fishes out of Newlyn in Cornwall and he’ll be sending us his lobsters throughout the season. Some of you met him a few weeks ago when he spent the day on the shop with his lovely wife, Sally. He really loves what he does and we’re very privileged to be able to get hold of his lobsters – they are extremely sought after

Seasonality is crucial to enjoying great food; when it really is at it’s best for both quality and price, so make the most of the native lobster season and enjoy the outstanding  flavour and texture you only get from British lobsters
