Lockdown Lobsters started in March 2020 with a simple mission to help a fishermen, Sion, from North Wales and to sell his lobsters to London in lockdown. Previously North Wales lobster from the clear waters around the Llyn Peninsula was almost exclusively exported to Europe and China. The international shut down of Covid 19 gave us the opportunity to shorten supply lines for even by finding a UK market for one of Wales’s finest products.

We have sold every lobster caught by Sion ever since ! A third generation fisherman, he launches his boat from an almost deserted small cove, rather than a busy harbour. The lobster 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 will be delivering Welsh lobsters to us until the end of the year on specific dates for London delivery, or the date of your choice on our UK courier service.

Our NORTH WALES lobster season is about to begin.

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 front doors.

Originally a WhatsApp thread, the business grew by word of mouth and now 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.
