Our Smokehouse will be up and running in Spring with Sussex Rainbow Trout taking centre stage. Sourced exclusively from Chalk Springs Fishery in Arundel, our fish spend their days in gin clear water and are then cold smoked the old fashioned way using salt, Sussex wood & patience, with a few quirky cures along the way.
Turn your catch of the day into a centrepiece ready to dazzle any dinner guests. Just serve with one of your "hilarious" fishing stories for maximum impact. Choose your cure then hand sliced or left as a whole side. Suitable for home freezing so you can plan ahead.
We hate waste, especially when there is a living creature involved, so once we are operational we will be implementing a Sunday 4pm cut-off time for all orders placed the previous week. At 4pm on Sunday the fish you have ordered will still be happily swimming around in Arundel, snapping insects from the surface. Only once we have placed our order with Chalk Springs will the exact amount of fish we need be quickly and humanely dispatched, before being collected by us.
We will grade each fish personally, deciding which cures and methods suit each individual fish best - matching them to your orders. Only then will we begin the process of preparing, curing, smoking, maturing and packaging these wonderful fish by hand.
Once complete your product will be sent out to you the following Friday ready to enjoy. All fish is suitable for home freezing and will come with a minimum of 5 days shelf life from end of production process.
