This long lock down period has been encouraging our collective culinary, artistic and photographic talents. We have really appreciated all the recent pictures of fantastic looking fish dishes that our customers have been posting on Instagram.

To add our bit to the sharing enthusiasm and to add some extra fun and incentive we have been running a Fish photo contest. The prize is nothing less than one of our new jute shopping bags not to mention the kudos, bragging rights and the inevitable envy of your friends.


With so many fantastic images it was a tough choice. A big thank you to everybody who joined in and posted a tasty image. However we did select two worthy winners @hal7474 and @freddienicholls1 . Many congratulations to them both.

You can see all the images from photo contest finalists here >>
