Discover our history and life on the Suffolk coast. From fishing, growing oysters,  sustainable fishing and how we started smoking fish

Pinney’s of Orford has had decades of experience in creating the perfect smoke – balancing the temperature of the fire, the amount of air flow through the smoker, the direction of the wind, the moisture in the air, the fat content of the fish, the distance between the fish and the fire, and the time it hangs there. He produces an incredible product, preserving the old-fashioned way at an amazing level of consistency, by using little more than sound knowledge and feel.

For many years we have prided ourselves on running a sustainable business, passionate about protecting the Suffolk coastal fisheries. Our ethos is to use low impact methods of fishing that protect the environment and care for local fish stocks, restoring oyster beds and using traditional methods to fish.  With fresh daily catches of seasonal fish including skate, lobster and crabs, they are able to supply their shop and restaurant with the finest produce and alongside this create delicious pates, smoked cheese and meats.
