Catching fish has always been an important part of our business. It grew from a hobby and a passion back in the sixties, when we fished from small open longshore boats with no winches or electrical navigational equipment, to today’s more modern catamarans. Our knowledge of the inshore grounds has been gained through much effort and considerable trial and error.

We now have two vessels, ‘Jolene’ and ‘Southern Cross’ which make day trips and bring home fresh catches of lobsters, crabs, skate, cod, soles, herring and sprats, all of which are available in our shop and are the main supply for our restaurant.

Our methods of fishing are very environmentally friendly, using only light gear, such as pots, longlines and drift nets that only gently skim the sea bed.

If you would like us to inform you when we have fresh catches of your particular favourite fish please sign-up for our regular What’s in season? emails.
