Seafood Restaurant of the Year 2018

We are delighted to have been named the winner of the 2018 Seafood Restaurant of the Year by The Caterer; in association with Seafish, the public body supporting the £10bn UK seafood industry.

The restaurant was awarded the title for its exemplary customer service and menu, which demonstrates a variety of locally-sourced fish species, after being tested during an anonymous audit by Seafish. It was also praised by the judges for its sourcing and sustainability practices, and for the team’s dedication to training around provenance.
