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

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.

The rocky Cornish coast provides the perfect habitat full of nooks and crannies for these beauties to hide in, and the low impact fishing style of hauling crab pots makes sure they’re a sustainable catch too.

With our dressed crabs, we do the hard work for you. Our expert team will hand-pick the meat from cooked crabs and create a delicious treat inside a shell - with a combination of both white and brown meat.

Delicious as a standalone starter, with some doorstep white bread!


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

To ensure a high quality of presentation, we purchase high-quality crab shells which are cleaned and sanitised by our suppliers. We then fill the shell with Cornish crab meat which has been cooked and picked by us. These shells will generally be smaller than the crabs landed into us, however this product is sold by weights below.

Normally you would expect a total of 150g of meat, made up of 100g brown meat and 50g white meat.

Rich in zinc, selenium and copper help to boost the immune system.
