The Old Watch House - Fresh Fish, Crab & Lobster

The Old Watch House

Fresh Fish, Crab & Lobster


  • Being right on Cobb Harbour itself, you're spoilt for choice for seafood and local fish as we support local registered fishermen. We also buy first-hand at Brixham Market to cut out the middle man.

Live crab, seasonal local fish include Bream, Bass, Dabs, Plaice, Megrim, Pollack, Skate, Lemon Sole, Brill, Turbot, Whiting, Plaice and Gurnard to name a few. With an ecological passion for DIVED scallops, you can be assured of provenance. Carefully selected Crab and Lobster come from Beer in Devon. Other shellfish include Portland Oysters, Cornish Mussels (Fowey) and Poole Clams.

In 1934 local legend Victor Homyer turned the harbour-side boating shed and former coast-guard station down on Cobb Square in Lyme Regis into The Old Watch House Fresh Fish Shop. lobsterSimon Bennett has run The Watch House Fish Shop since 2002. Simon says: "Filling the ice cold counter on a daily basis with fine local seafayre is a daily challenge and perfecting our seasonal offerings has taken alot of trial and error. I couldn't run three shops without a great team either"!
