Christmas Orders

ORDER OYSTERS AND SEAFOOD NOW FOR CHRISTMAS.


Our last delivery date before Christmas is on Wednesday 22 December 2021. Oysters and smoked fish will remain fresh and fine to consume for 5-7 days from delivery, so will be perfect for Christmas Day. Scallops, clams and cockles will remain fresh and fine to consume for 2-3 days from delivery. Please select your preferred delivery date at Checkout. Note: Our couriers deliver to addresses in mainland UK, but not the Scottish Highlands.


Please order live lobsters and live crabs no more than 5 days prior to your selected delivery date as these are pot-caught by fishermen from small day boats further out to sea, so are subject to tides and weather.


Our first delivery date after Christmas is on Wednesday 12 January 2022 onwards.


Tip: Save on courier fees - click on any seafood product, then scroll to the bottom of the same page to see other products available from the same producer under the same courier fee.


Freshest Oysters & Seafood Possible: Our oysters & other seafood are packed to order by our shellfish farms/fisheries and smokery, for next day delivery direct to your address in mainland UK. This is why our seafood is the freshest seafood possible - direct from the source to your address.


Live lobsters and crabs are booked under a By 12 Noon courier service: Delivery is usually made between 8am and 12 noon (on rare occasions by 6pm or later) on the scheduled delivery day. On very rare occasions delivery made be the next day.

Order seafood 1 day in advance: We recommend you select your delivery date for live shellfish and/or smoked fish one day in advance. For example, if you would like your parcel delivered on Friday, then please select Thursday as your scheduled delivery date. This means your parcel should be delivered on Thursday, or on very rare occasions on Friday.


Delivery updates and how to store seafood: On the day prior to your selected delivery date, we email you the courier consignment details, so you can obtain an ETA and any updates from the courier's website on the day of delivery.
