Craster Kippers

Craster Kippers

These legendary Craster Kippers are smoked by L.Robson & Sons, a traditional smokehouse based in the small Northumberland village of Craster. 

Only the plumpest Herring, with the correct oil content, are used to produce these much loved Kippers. They are then split, placed into a brine solution and hung in the 130 year old smokehouse where they smoulder away for 16 hours. 

These quality Kippers truly deserve their reputation of being the finest in Britain, and are wonderful with our kedgeree butter. 

All the fish in our frozen section was caught at its best and flash frozen at the quayside. When it arrives at your home you can put it in the freezer to enjoy another day (even if partly defrosted) or put in your fridge and enjoy it within the next 2-3 days as you would with our fresh fish.

Recommended Butters & Sauces for Craster Kippers

Every day our expert team buy the freshest fish directly from the fleet in Brixham and from the most sustainable fisheries in the world for the online seafood market.

We prepare and portion the fish right at the quayside, just metres from where the boats land, and all the seafood is fully traceable right back to which boat caught it.

We pack and send via our carbon neutral delivery partner to your door in our eco-packaging. Our boxes and insulation are made from recycled materials, and can be recycled too.

When fish is in abundance we blast freeze it at the quayside, locking in the freshness so you can enjoy your favourite even when that specie isn't landed or the boats can't go out.
