Many people have no idea how to handle a lobster. This page is intended to be a brief guide for the uninitiated and includes instructions on cooking lobster.
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.
One word for Cornish Lobster… wow! We are very proud to specialise in what is arguably the most prized seafood species on the planet. We ONLY supply native lobsters, the majority of which are landed in the clear Atlantic waters off the north and south coasts of Cornwall. If you’re wondering how to buy, prepare and enjoy the finest lobster available, you’re in the right place!

Calling all health-heroes, foodies, fitness-freaks and people who love blogs with facts in them. We have crunched the numbers, researched data, looked at spreadsheets and even hired a fish-whisperer to ask the fish themselves to find out which ones are the highest in protein. Of course, our history and expertise within the seafood industry also helps a lot but we thought best leave nothing to chance.

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.
Your Seafood is Fabulous
I have ordered many Lobsters from you and never been disappointed. This time I added mussels - I have to say they were the best mussels I have had since we lived in Nova Scotia - Indian Point were reputed to be the best in the world but yours more than matched them. Fabulous. Thanks once again, I look forward to ordering again very shortly.
