We source our lobsters from small inshore day boats that fish the clear blue waters of the Cornish coast - boats like the Janice-Mary of Padstow, the Hannah-Jack from Newquay and the Girl Deedee of Cadgwith. We are proud that we never have, and never will import cheaper and inferior quality whole shelled lobsters and we NEVER supply frozen or previously frozen whole Lobsters. Unlike many of our competitors, we will NEVER send you frozen, or previously-frozen, lobsters. ALL our whole lobsters are cooked fresh to order on the premises. This allows for them to be frozen on receipt, should you wish to consume them at a later date. **What to expect when you buy a whole Lobster:** * Delicious White Meat - this can be found in the tail and claws of the Lobster * Tomalley - this is the soft green or red substance which is found in the body cavity of Lobsters that fulfills the function of both the liver and pancreas. It is perfectly safe to eat and is often considered a delicacy. It may be eaten alone or used in sauces for flavour and as a natural thickening agent. * Pot-caught by small boats fishing the Cornish Coast *' Recommended' by Cornwall Good Seafood Guide * Proud to support Lobster Hatchery Buy-One-Set-One-Free Campaign * Excellent source of Omega 3 oils and essential vitamins and minerals * Humanely dispatched with our very own 'crustastun' and expertly prepared to suit you

Sustainability & Provenance

We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish lobster. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and many of them land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait. [Read more](

The Best Lobsters

As ever, everything arrived OK thanks and we’ve just eaten the lobsters (a Valentine’s treat for my wife – oh all right, for me too!). The substitution of Turbot in place of the Brill I ordered, which was unavailable, was fine and much appreciated. Thanks for that. Finally, as I’ve said before, your new packaging is a huge improvement and makes the whole process much easier at the receiving end. I keep mentioning FFT to family and friends so I hope you get some more sales from them.

Our perfect meal

Thank you very much for the really wonderful lobsters that I found outside my door on Saturday morning.  They were delicious and a great hit with my guests in the evening!  I have never seen such big claws! We had some fun getting the hammer out to break into them.... Thank you for a perfect meal with special friends and the chance to celebrate in great, messy, style! Thank you for the freshness of the lobsters and for the very efficient delivery just on the day they were needed! Congratulations on a very good job, well delivered and well done.

Wedding Anniversary Celebrations!

just thought I'd drop you a quick email to let you know our order arrived on Saturday morning. I opened the box and it smelled like Cornwall, the sea. The mussels were superb in the mariniere sauce and the lobster thermidor was fantastic! We were treating ourselves as it is our 26th wedding anniversary tomorrow and to be honest, we prefer to buy the very best ingredients and cook ourselves than go to a restaurant and be disappointed. We were delighted with the quality of the fish, as always.
