**Local Oysters - will come whole, so you will need to be able to shuck them! There are plenty of YouTube videos to help. 

The nature of fishing means that in exceptional circumstances we may need to substitute some items and we will be in touch if this is the case. 


Our picnics are presented in cooled recyclable boxes meaning no need for fridge space - they will stay cold for 12 hours.

Please advise us of any food intolerances or allergies in the Special Request's information box on the order form.
