Smoked Eel – June 2019
Despite many requests over the years, we have always declined to offer smoked eels, due to the parlous state of the UK eel population.
However, the Sustainable Eel Group have been harvesting a limited number of glass (baby) eels from the Rivers Severn and Parrott under licence from the Environment Agency. These have been reared in Holland where warm water is cheaper to source;
As a result of a recent fact finding trip, we are now -re-importing these eels to smoke for our customers – and very popular they’re proving.
You’ll find them sold in fillets on our website; if you’d rather buy whole smoked eels, then just give us a ring and we can easily sort – they way between 500 and 700 gr.
