The cardinal of the seas, nothing says luxury like a whole, native Portland lobster, halved, grilled and served with hot garlic butter. A great way to impress, or just to treat yourself, these beautiful, delicate yet richly flavoured, pot-caught lobsters are landed fresh from the boats on the Weymouth quayside every day. 

Please note we only home deliver cooked lobsters. Live lobsters are always available in the fishmongers. Whole Portland lobsters larger than 1kg are available from our shop, please email us to place an order.

Lobster thrive in the nutrient rich waters around Portland Bill. The seven distinct tidal streams of The Race not only bring in food, they’ve also helped create a unique underwater world of caves, crevices, ledges and cliff edges that crustacea love. The skill in catching local lobster lies in getting your pots in as close as possible to these submarine formations without losing them to the elements. Tide, wind and current all conspire to snag fishing gear and protect the lobsters, which is part of why they’re such a premium catch.

To reheat a whole lobster, wrap it in aluminium foil and place it, belly-up, on a baking tray. Add a pat or two of butter to the foil wrap to keep the lobster moist and reheat for 5 to 10 minutes in the oven, on a high heat.

There are hundreds of tasty lobster recipes, from rich lobster thermidor to indulgent pastas and risottos, but we recommend keeping it simple, split, served with butter and seasoning.

Cooked lobsters should be stored in the fridge, between 0ºC-5ºC, and eaten within 2-3 days. 

Do not freeze whole lobsters.

Did you know?

Lobsters are normally dark blue when alive and turn a bright orange when cooked, but occasionally, due to a genetic mutation that causes the lobster to over-produce a particular protein, they appear much lighter blue, almost albino.
