Dan’s Fish Lovers’ Lunch Club news

I am delighted that the Fish Lovers’ Saturday Lunch Club at Rick Stein's last November was a sell-out. Everyone had a great time and the food was superb.

Don't forget to book your place for our return visit to Michael Caine's Gidleigh Park Hotel on Sunday 22nd March.

I am also planning a return to Life's a Beach, Bude's premier fish restaurant. As they say: "Imagine ... sitting on the veranda of a restaurant which nestles among rugged cliffs, gazing at the golden sands and the sea, stained scarlet, as the sun sets ..." Sounds great, so keep checking out this website for details.

Also you can look forward to another Lunch Club visit to Danny Ho's Han Court in June.



What a great day at Han Court on the 8th of June! Danny Ho and his family put on a superb show for 61 lucky Lunch Club diners. It was a seafood banquet par excellence, and one not to be forgotten. Thank you, Danny!

Incidentally, here’s a Fish Lovers’ Lunch Club date for your diary. In October I’ll be helping Bideford’s two talented French chefs from the Café du Parc to put together a menu for them to cook for our Lunch Club at their new restaurant. I’m also hoping to supply the fish from Appledore Fish Dock. They’re great guys and superb cooks, and I’m looking forward to it immensely.

I know it’s still the beginning of summer, but I’m sure you’ll want to know about our Fish Lovers’ Lunch Club Christmas treat. We’ve been invited back to Rick Stein’s in November. Book your place now so you’re not disappointed!
