We’ve tried our best to keep as many of you lovely folk as happy as we can, and we’ve tried our best to make shore that we’ll get all the seafood your heart desires!
However, as I’m shore you’ll understand, this year what we do here won’t be the same as it’s been in the past. Please don’t assume everything’s the same as we’ve done it before. Read on and make shore you are up to date
Making an order
Orders are ONLY taken online – no exceptions

Once slots have gone – they have gone.
If you’ve missed the chance – sorry, make shore you sign up to newsletter so don’t miss the boat next year.
If we have enough seafood left, we’ll make platters for the shop counter for Christmas Eve – these will be strictly on first come first served basis and can’t be “held” for folk
Re Collections 28th – 31st December 2020
We are not taking any orders for between Christmas and New Year. This is because we just don’t know what seafood we will be able to get and don’t want to promise and not be able to keep it.
Products available to order
If product is not on website – it can’t be ordered. It means we can’t guarantee we will have it in. If that’s what you want – you’re more than whelk’ome to nip in the shop and sea if we have it in.
This year we can NOT hold things as we have done in the past. Sorry.

Collecting Christmas Orders
We can’t offer the usual “Contact Free” Collection service we’ve been operating since June* and this Christmas, collections will be a bit different to previous years.
Yule not be coming inside the deli to collect your order.
The festive order collection point will be outdoors on the café deck**. We’ll still be maintaining all of our COVID secure measures and ask that you do too. So please:
Keep to your chosen time slot
Wear a mask if you can
Remember to keep a safe distance from others
Have your order details ready
So, when plaicing your order, don’t forget those little bits on the side; dressed crab shell, lemon, cocktail sauce, crackers etc. If you do need a bit more on the side than you thought – you can still pop in our shop and get it.
Also this year you can only come and collect your order in your chosen time slot – as that’s how we’ll have everything arranged in our cold stores. We want to keep any queues to a minimum to keep risk as low as possible. If you need to change your slot try logging into your Latimers online account, to see if there’s any availability to change it.
*however, if do require a specific contact free collection (i.e. you are vulnerable & shielding) please get in touch as soon as possible, we may be able to help.
**Café takeaway is closed 21st – 24th December
