Our Cornish Crab are possibly some of the finest seafood money can buy.

Caught off the south and north coast of Cornwall, our pre-cooked crab is full of juicy meat with the finest flavour. It no wonder Cornwall is famous for our crabs - with the meat lending itself to a wide range of meals from a linquine to a good old sandwich with doorstop white bread.

We've been sharing the very best crab since 1983 - and we take great pride in ensuring we only select quality crabs from our trusted suppliers. Crabs are delivered to us daily throughout the season from small, family-run dayboats.

We offer three sizes - Large (800g - 1kg), Medium (600g - 800g) and Small (400g - 600g). We cook all our crabs, meaning they are ready to eat as soon as they arrive with you.



All weights stated are live weights before cooking.

We are dependent on market landings which can be affected by seasonality and the weather. This means we may have to send you frozen crab which will arrive partially-defrosted.

Our Cornish Crabs are cooked and delivered whole, so we are unable to see the quantity of the brown crab meat inside. However, we do offer brown picked crab meat if that's required.

At certain times of the year, the crab may contain no brown meat as it is dependent on seasonality.

Some shells may contain residue cooking water inside; please just drain off before eating.
