Sorry to report that the Rocket Store has closed following the expiry of its lease. The Boscastle Fishing Company is still fishing from the harbour however and will be offering lobster, crab and wet fish to restaurants, caterers and wholesalers this summer.

Just had a takeaway crab sandwich from Boscastle Fishing Company, amazing! So fresh and full of flavour. Sandwich is full of crab too. Good value when you see how much crab there is in each sandwich.

Had hoped for a lobster roll but none available due to recent weather conditions. All opted for crab sandwiches instead. Very tasty. Staff however were slightly curt, no interaction at all.

Very disappointed! Ordered large fresh crab, very expensive @ £8.95. Crab meat was finely shredded and had little flavour, tasted frozen. Been good last few years too. Sad as very few outlets for seafood in area.

I don't normally write on here but was compelled to by my lovely lobster roll today. It was probably the nicest thing i've eaten on my holiday, and we've hit a few of the "foodie hotspots". Super fresh, very tasty. Yum yum eat here.

We had a crab sandwich and lobster role, both freshly made. This is how food should be. Also very nice people who serviced us

We were unlucky to arrive too late to have access to the complete assortment as they were almost sold out but lucky in a way that that we had the single picknick table outside for ourselves. They still had my favorite seafood snack i.e. a...More
