Chefs Chris & James Tanner, owners and culinary pioneers of the successful Tanners Restaurant and Barbican Kitchen in Plymouth, opened Catch in the Summer of 2014.
Inspired by their historical links with Looe and a desire to bring their vision to the Cornish port where they have sourced their fish for years, the expansion included a farm shop, street food hut and butchery.
Catch is a traditional Fish & Chip Takeaway with a difference. The ethos of the business is underpinned by high quality and sustainable purchasing, with all of the cod and haddock being purchased through the Marine Stewardship Council.
Fish is also sourced directly from the fishing boats coming in and out of the harbour at Looe, and potatoes from Hoskins Farm in Downderry. A truly local Cornish business!
All food is cooked to order and not held during busier periods, however busy we are! All of the fish batter is natural with no additives or preservatives, tartar sauce is homemade and last but by no means least, you can get gluten free fish & chips, not available anywhere else in Looe!
Chris & James Tanner also operate the award winning Kentish Hare in Tunbridge Wells. This beautiful pub takes advantage of the superb larder that is available in Kent, which is complemented by a specially selected range of superb wines, beers and spirits.
Here at Catch we pride ourselves in sustainability and looking after the future.
Working with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) we supply fish that has been sourced through businesses with MSC chain of custody certification, this ensures that the fish that we serve has been sourced from sustainable stocks using sustainable fishing practices, looking after the future of seafood and the future of marine wildlife.
