Dance ti’ thy daddy, ti’ thy mammy sing;
Thou shall hev a fishy on a little dishy,
Thou shall hev a fishy when the boat comes in.
We work closely with our suppliers to make sure the fish we serve is caught in the least wasteful way which can mean line caught fish, pot caught seafood or fish caught in gill nets with big holes in them so they only catch the larger fish and let the small ones through.
We only serve fish and seafood when it is in actually here in the channel. That’s why there’s no cod on the menu in the summer or lobster in the winter. You will never see tuna or red snapper on our menu because we don’t believe you should import fish from other countries when we have perfectly good alternatives here.
We avoid using fish which are being over stretched. So you may be a little surprised at some of the fish in the fish pie, Brightonbaise or even the fish and chips. But who knew that Trigger fish tastes so good and Huss may look a little weird but it batters up perfectly.
And finally we may not always have everything on the menu. Sometimes the fish don’t bite, or come late into season, or are not big enough for us to feel comfortable about buying them. It’s the price we have to pay to do the right thing and we’ll always try and have an alternative.
