Whether you love fresh seafood platters or natural gourmet sea salt which is sustainably sourced, hand harvested and made just using the warmth of the sun, or artisan preserves from local fruit orchards, or award winning luxury smoked meats, or prefer vegan treats. Or love luxury hand crafted chocolates, whisky, wines, sloe gin or real ales, our passionate local brewers, bakers, chefs, cooks and culinary creators in East Yorkshire have something special just for you.


Fresh from Bridlington Bay

Bridlington Bay shellfish, crab and lobster, landed in Bridlington and along our coast is not only enjoyed locally but is so special that it is shipped to restaurants around the world, so make sure you try some whilst you are here. Bridlington’s bustling harbour is an attraction in itself, whilst the business activity demonstrates the importance of the Bridlington Bay fishing port, naming Bridlington the Lobster Capital of Europe, landing more tonnes than anywhere else in Europe. You can find this delicacy in local fishmongers and restaurants. Fresh seafood is a local speciality and is definitely a real taste of East Yorkshire.
