Regrettably the mussel shortage continues due to the continuing high toxin levels in the mussels caused by higher than usual algae blooms in the waters where our mussels are cultivated. This is unfortunately affecting the whole of the UK and while some mussels are available at certain mussel farms the demand is extremely high with so many restaurants clamouring for mussels.
The most recent tests suggest that the mussels are still not to the very high quality that we and our customers demand.
As a result we will not be able to provide any kilo and half kilo pots of mussels from either our main menu, Lunchtime Quickie menu or Pre-Theatre menu.
However, we do have some mussels set aside for a few dishes: seafood platter, shellfish pasta and mussel platters and we are still offering our full extensive menu of delicious seafood dishes and non-seafood alternatives.
We apologise to all our customers for any inconvenience that this may cause and as soon as we have any further news we’ll let you know.
