      Our cracking Lobsters are back…

      This July and August, you can enjoy whole lobster (at its prime), caught off the coast of Brixham and Colchester every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Perfectly paired with our Grand Mayne from Southern France, fruity and refreshing, very gluggable on its own but also tip-top with the sweet, rich flesh of Cornish lobster.

      Lobster Thermidor, Grilled Lobster & Garlic Butter or Dressed Native Crab, served with Skinny Fries – British really is best. And if you don’t believe me, book a table and come give them a try. Be quick, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

        Out of Africa

        Our friends at Nicholsons have been working behind the scenes with Lippa and Tarquin Wood on a game-changing project – “Trees in the Wild” – which will run alongside our Herds for Growth programme in the Mara. “Trees in the Wild” will see 500,000 trees planted in the Mara and is being generously supported by Nicholsons who specialise in forestry and arboriculture.  It will be launched this year and is endorsed by the International Tree Fund (ITF). We would love it if you could join us for its launch and a Herds for Growth update in the tipi at The Fishes. 6:30pm start, drinks and bitings included, talks to start at 7:30pm.

        Tarquin and Lippa Wood created the Enonkishu Conservancy, the House in the Wild, the Mara Training Camp and the Naretoi development.  They will give a short talk on their lives in the Mara and why they believe the Mara can be saved.

        This event will be a great opportunity to understand the current issues in African rangeland and wildlife and tourism and in particular the Mara in Kenya, the home of the last great land migration.

        It will be great to see you there, tickets £10pp, available here.
