Seafood delivery?

(18 Posts)

I have a locked down birthday coming up and would love to spoil DH and I with a shellfish-seafood dinner at home. I'm thinking lobster, crab, prawns etc etc.

Does anyone recommend any particular companies that deliver, or am I best to see what I could get at Waitrose maybe?

Thanks smile

Whereabouts do you live?

I'm in Manchester, a long way away from any decent fish/seafood supplier and unfortunately I've never found the economics to stack up for a delivery from a specialist fishmonger. I tend to go to a fish wholesaler when I'm in a town 40 miles away visiting MIL, or I buy frozen stuff in my local Portuguese minimarket.

I'm towards Bristol.

@Otherpeoplesteens - look up dock to door on Facebook. May be local enough to you?

These guys are more expensive than our local fismonger but have been reliably good esp oysters

Sorry, never been to that part of the world so can't help. Crab might be a bit of a stretch, but lobster and decent prawns are still available from Christmas in the freezers at the likes of Lidl and Aldi.

I haven't used it myself but I've heard is good.
Based in Dorset, not sure if that is close enough?

@glasshalfsomething Thanks for the link, but those prices are beyonf ridiculous. £9 for a kilo of sardines? They're £3.95 from A&O Seafood in Burnley.

Also remembered I randomly got a free delivery offer from this place today and the January box looks ideal for a birthday (but I've never used them)

Have a look at the Rick Stein boxes

I’ve heard very good things about the oyster shed

Have you checked out your local fishmongers?

Have you checked out your local fishmongers?

grin if I were able to get to (or even had tbh!) a local fishmonger, do you think I'd be posting for delivery ideas?

grin I was just checking as my two local fishmongers are both doing collections and deliveries whilst their shops are closed but neither are advertising it anywhere, I only know as I saw someone talking about it on fb.
