Fish Orders

Our fish orders are subject to a £50 minimum order, so we limit these to one a week or two in peak season. We cannot generally order at quieter time. We strive to keep a good freezer stock of top quality hake, haddock, pollack, scallops and king prawns all year round. This is not like supermarket processed frozen fish and it is unlikely you could tell the difference on your plate from bought wet fish.

Live brown crab is no longer available from The Cove but at present lobsters are available by arrangement. Delivery depends on sea conditions and as much notice as possible is advantageous.

Bread Orders

Sadly, since the dreaded lurgi we no longer bake baguettes in house. The bloomers are still available.

Generally we prefer a day’s warning and we may ask for payment in advance. However we have been known to turn around desperate orders within an hour but don’t bank on it at busy times!

Newspaper Orders

To guarantee your daily or weekly newspaper or magazine (WH Smith willing) please ask at the counter to reserve your copy.

We can reserve newspapers with a day’s notice or, in the case of magazines, as much notice as possible. We will accept email requests stating the titles, start and end dates.

Please collect your order from the counter. Orders not collected by the collection day, without prior agreement, will be returned at the end of the day.

Cash Back

Your options for getting cash west of Penzance are limited. There is a free cash machine in St Just and in St Buryan during shop hours. The Old Boathouse offers a cash back service (restrictions apply). For the nearest free ATM or if you only possess a non-UK card, it's a trip to St Just.

Our cash back service is available to UK debit card holders and is generally subject to a £3 minimum spend on goods. We can provide cash back up to £50.

We can also provide cash back with no purchase but will charge a £1.50 service fee.
