A LOCKDOWN  STARTUP:

Lockdown Lobsters started in March 2020 with a simple mission to help a fisherman, Sion, from North Wales and to sell his lobsters to London in lockdown. Previously Welsh lobster from the clear waters around the Llyn Peninsula was exported to Europe and China. The market disruption, caused by Covid 19, gave us the opportunity to shorten supply lines forever, by finding a UK market for one of Wales’s finest products. We have sold every lobster caught by Sion ever since.

POT CAUGHT WELSH LOBSTER

  Traditionally fished lobster from Wales are known as the finest of Britsh Seafood. Ours are caught by Sion, a third-generation fisherman who launches his boat from an almost deserted small cove, rather than a busy harbour. The lobsters he catches are packed carefully in cool boxes for transport the afternoon before our delivery date. Since the beginning of 2021, we use and return our own purpose-built boxes to Wales to cut down on polystyrene waste. Sion delivers Welsh lobsters to us for London delivery on Saturdays during the summer and other selected weekend dates out of season. We deliver nationwide on any date of your choice on our UK courier service. We regret the courier orders are more expensive because of the higher cost of individual deliveries and more packaging.

CHOSEN BY THE BEST

During 2020 we started working Stevie Parle’s lockdown pop-up “Joy” in Portobello Road.  He was awarded GQ Restaurateur of the Year and also used our Pot Caught Welsh Lobster for his Soho restaurant’s famous Lobster Spaghetti. In 2021 Yotam Ottolenghi invented the Welsh Lobster Crumpet, specially conjured up from our supply for his Fitzrovia Restaurant “Rovi”. For 2023 we are lining up a collaboration with ambitious  Welsh chef Tomos Parry, recently awarded a Michelin star for his Shoreditch restaurant “BRAT”.

You can also eat Lockdown Lobsters at “The Potted Lobster”. in Abersoch, North Wales, “The Snooty Fox” in Lowick, Northants, and “The Lobster Pot”, in Nottingham. Plus occasionally at “Maremma” in Brixton and “Parlour” in Kensal Rise, both in London.

Our WELSH LOBSTER story

Our story started in March 2020 in North Wales when acclaimed photographer Jude Edginton met Sion Williams a third-generation fisherman on the North Wales coast for a photoshoot. With lockdown, a few days away both their businesses were facing ruin in the face of cancelled contracts. Instead, they created a unique plan, sealed by a handshake, to deliver Sion’s catch from sea to London’s front doors.

Originally a WhatsApp thread, the business grew by word of mouth. Totally legal as a food delivery business, there were still some lockdown logistics to consider. In the end some of the first deliveries in 2020 were collected at London landmarks like the Giraffe House next to London Zoo! Since that March meeting, every lobster Sion has landed has been sold by Lockdown Lobsters. The lobsters are delivered to London doorways and restaurants under 24 hours with minimum polystyrene and packaging. A massive thank you to all our customers.
