Welcome to the Spiny Lobster: we love to share food we love with people we like!
Every night, fishing boats float gently into the harbours of Brixham and Cornwall, bringing their hard won catches fresh out of the sea to be sold on the Fish Markets there. Every morning, before most of us are awake, our people bid at the auction for the fish that inspires us, that we think you will like the most, and it is then delivered direct to us at the restaurant and our fishmonger.
Whole fish to buy or share at the table, ones you will know like the freshest Turbot, Sea Bass and Sole, to the obscure but delightful fish caught off our shores, like Golden Hake, and the accurately named ‘pig faced’ bream. All types of oysters from around the country to choose, mussels, crabs, lobsters, prawns, a host of fresh shellfish bringing the taste of the sea to you to share as if you were there. We show, discuss it and sell it to those of you who want to enjoy it at home, and our chefs’ prepare it for those who want to share the experience with us in the restaurant.
The team specialise in cooking over the open fire of our josper grill, adding a distinct flavour to our food, which is inspired by our teams’ travels and work around the world, we cook in paper, salt and flame, and every day has a different menu celebrating what is in season and the catch of the day.
Look at our site every day for that days menu, and see what is new, and more importantly, fresh. If you want to gain a closer feel of what it is like to dine with us, then have a click on our ‘A Day in the life of the Spiny’ film below
