August is the best month for native lobsters and crab, and we’re celebrating by serving the best of British, every weekend, throughout the month.
Home to one of the largest fishing ports in the UK, we are honoured to work so closely with the fishermen in the harbour town of Brixham, enabling us to source sustainably, and provide native fish and seafood in season. Day-boat sourcing means fresher fish, which is fully traceable from the moment it’s caught, to its arrival on your plate.
Rob Adams, our lobster fisherman, is born and bred in Brixham, and with over 30 years of fishing under his belt, really knows his stuff. Like many small-boat fishermen, he is the owner and skipper of his boat, and is the epitome of a true fisherman, in both experience and stature! (Never is he seen without his old favourite rigger boots!)
Rob gets going at the crack of dawn every day, leaving his warm, cosy bed to take a short trundle down to the harbour where his trusted boat ‘The Little Pearl’ is sat bobbing, waiting to be taken out like an eager puppy in the pursuit of the days catch.
Rob is a great believer of making sure lobster fishing remains sustainable and is why he only picks the lobsters that meet his high standards. We’re honoured to have fresh native lobster delivered to our pubs, to serve every weekend in August. The meat is packed full of flavour in comparison to their Canadian counterparts and arriving fresh really is what makes British seafood the best!
This year we will be introducing delicious Devon crab to our specials boards too.
Caught off the South Devon coast and landed daily into Salcombe and Kingswear, the clean rich waters of the South Devon coast make this crab is the sweetest tasting out there.
Devon Crab also has many of the essential elements the body needs. Did you know…
- A portion of crab represents one of your 2-a-week seafood
- One dressed crabs supplies your weekly requirement of Omega 3
- Crab is also rich in Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin B2 as well as being a very good source of Protein and Magnesium
Whether you treat yourself to crab or lobster, join us Thursday 18th July – Saturday 31st August, and choose from Native Lobster Thermidor or Native Grilled Lobster, Garlic Butter & Skinny Fries or Half Dressed Native Crab & Skinny Fries to see why British really is best.
