Brill is similar to Turbot, and cheaper. It has an almost oval body, a grey-brown dark side with light and dark freckles and ranges from 400g to 4kg. 

Brill has a sweeter flavour than Turbot, smaller Brill are appreciated on the bone while larger fish make great steaks.

All of our Brill comes direct from the English Channel, using boats local to Hythe bay.

Cod

The British classic, Cod is a superb whitefish with a great taste. A large head and long body with a mixture of sandy-browns, greyish-greens and darker speckles.

While fillets from smaller fish are most commonly used, it’s at its best when loins or supremes are cut from larger fish, giving a meatier portion with large succulent flakes of pure white. Cooking Cod is very easy thanks to its versatile nature, taking on most flavours, but take care as it can easily be over-cooked.

Cod cheeks are also available which provide a boneless and skinless firmer meat.

Brown Crab Meat

Cooked, hand picked Cornish crab meat.

Coley

Also known as Coalfish, Coley has a long tapered body, with a slight greenish tint. They are a cold water species, meaning they are more common in the cooler water around the north of the British Isles. They can also found throughout the Baltic Sea and in Scandinavian and Icelandic waters.

We source all of our Coley just over the water from French fishermen or from Scotland.

Dover Sole

With a dark brown skin and a longer and narrower shaped body than other flatfish, Dover sole has a crisp white flesh, &  an almost sweet taste.

Found in the Hythe bay from April till September we source directly  from local boats when possible so you can always guarantee the freshest  fish.

Haddock

As a member of the cod family, Haddock is a popular fish cooked fresh or traditionally smoked.  The meat is firm and white, high in protein and low in fat.

 Haddock is available from the North sea, making it a very sustainable fish and always fresh.

Herring belongs to the same family of fish as sprats and pilchard. 

Herring have an important role in the marine ecosystem, as a transformer of plankton at the bottom of the food chain to higher trophic or feeding levels, e.g. for cod, seabirds and marine mammals.

The boats around the local area supply our Herring between October and December, while during the local off season we source Herring from Norway

Huss have beautiful spotted skins. It is very difficult to remove this skin but with a lovely taste and only has one bone (muscle)  through the centre making it easy for cooking and preparing.
