New stretch target

Should we be lucky enough to reach our stretch target, the extra money would be used to build a roof terrace on our Tackle Box providing Al Fresco dining with an awesome view! Also we require a new fridge trailer to keep your lunch fresh as a... errr... North Sea Fish!

Dear Fish Shackers! Happy New Year… we hope you had a great festive period!

We’ve been busy developing the shack ready for the summer and hope to be back in 2015 with even more Lobster for the grill than ever before!

We'd like to design and build a semi-portable Fish Bar and Grill using shipping containers allowing us to trade more frequently and less dependant upon the weather.

Following the success of our trading shenanigans throughout 2013 and 2014 we'd like to develop our offering somewhat. This will enable us to increase trading capacity, open in more extreme weather conditions and open for longer hours throughout the Summer.

The unit will contain a wood fired pizza oven that will enable us to cook up fresh flatbreads with all our dishes as well as some less fishy options for the kids. We'll also have an extended Charcoal BBQ to help us keep up to demand in the Lobster season as well as our old favourites Mackerel, Monkfish, Wild Salmon, Trout and Chilli Squid on a Stick amongst others.

We plan to open for breakfast too and will be offering dishes such as locally cured Gravadlax in the Salmon season and the classic colonial Indian breakfast Kedgeree for those more adventurous diners.

We'd be building the unit ourselves in our distinctive, rustic fish shack fashion... we'll have no excuse for running out!!!

We have three potential sites for the Tackle Box and will release the final destination once confirmed... Obviosly King Edwards Bay is on the cards.

We have chosen the route of Crowdfunding to part-fund the project. Anything we raise can be match funded via private investment so your input is vital!

We will be asking for pledges of £15 £30 £60 £150 £1000 and £2000, in return for your pledge you’ll be rewarded based on the value of your donation… Rewards include us cooking you a Lobster in your location of choice, private catering for a special event for up to 30 people or even a lifetime of Fish Shack meals!!!

The idea has been long in development and we’re looking forwards to the dream becoming reality.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to grilling you up a tasty treat later this year!

We'll be throwing an extra special Fish Shack Party free of charge for all those who pledge where you'll recieve a 10% discount card!!!
