Our Food

Meat

Most of our meat is sourced from an excellent local butcher. In the fridge we will generally have his smoked back and home cure bacon.

In the freezer we will have rib eye steaks, chicken supremes, locally made burgers, mince steak and fantasic local sausages. These are supplemented with regular commercial brand names in mainly price marked packs to guarantee best value prices.

We also stock westcountry ham and pork sausages in the fridge.

Dairy

Best of local

Many of our dairy products come from Trewithian Diary including milk, butter, natural youghurt and clotted cream. Other regular products include cheddar, mild and mature as well as some cracking Cornish camembert, Cornish Blue and two types of brie.

We also stock a range of savoury biscuits called POPTI, which include parmesan, seaweed and Mediterranean varieties as well as multiseed crackers and a rather toothsome sourdough cracker.

Fish

Nearly all our fish comes Newlyn and St Ives and will have been caught either by inshore day boats or netters and trawlers in the Western Approaches. 

We keep a stock of hake, haddock and pollack when it is available. We vacuum pack and freeze it on the day of arrival in sensible sized portions. Frozen fish is every bit as good as freshly delivered and can be picked from our freezer on the day it is needed.

During the main part of the season we will extend the choice of fish depending on what is available. This may include Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified Cornish hake as well as pollack, megrim sole, MSC Cornish sardines, John Dory, lemon sole, monk fish, haddock and many more in season fish and shellfish. 

Sample easy fish recipes available, full instructions for cooking and picking crab and lobster. The latter are available to order cooked with 24 business hours notice and lobsters are available from the local boats depending on sea conditions and availability.

Drop in and ask about our fish. You may be surprised how easy it is.

Bakery

Bread, pasties and cakes

Our pasties come from Prima Bakeries in Scorrier who use local meat and vegetables when available. The pasties are made by hand by bakers who take care over their products. We sell both traditional steak Cornish pasties and a cheese and vegetable variant which is suitable for vegetarians.

 

Vegetable and gluten free pasties are available with notice.

 

Prima Bakeries also supply a range of cakes including Saffron and Hevva, or Cornish heavy cake. We also have a small range of their flapjacks.

Cornish Artisan

Her at The Old Boathouse we stock as many locally produced foods as we can. The Sisley & Crellow are a classic example, covering preserves such Strawberry and Blackberry and Apple as well as a top tasting mustard and chutney varieties.

 

Quite a recent addition is the Cornish peanut butter. We stock their original crunchy ans sea salt variations.

 

At the heart of any sweet biscuit display is Furniss, a Cornish firm with its roots in the late 1880s still producing finest Fairings and Clotted Cream Shortbread amongst others.

 

There is also Cornish Seasalt products mixed with chilli or spices and Cornish Seaweed Salt. We also sell larger pots of Cornish Sea Salt for cooking or filling a grinder.
