Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack is a clarion call to British Seafood. A nostalgic journey to the seaside holidays of our youth; a showcase of the best produce from British shores; a seaside restaurant in the citY.
The Bonnie Gull Philosophy
On this little island we call home we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the finest seafood in the world; Wester Ross Lobster and Langoustine, Devon Brown Crab, Loch Ryan Oysters, Manx Queenies, and Shetland Mussels as well as stunning local fish such as Cornish Mackerel, North Sea Haddock, Selsey Cod and Gigha Halibut. We source our seafood direct from day-boats around the coast with a menu that changes every day to showcase the mornings’ catch. At Bonnie Gull we’re offering a new approach to seafood in London — accessible, affordable, simple, fresh, responsibly sourced and 100% British!
The Bonnie Lads
Alex Hunter and Danny Clancy loved eating fresh British seafood but found that most London restaurants that served it were a little “stuffy”. Inspired by the simple, unassuming restaurants of British coastal towns they started their own pop-up in an old Hackney pie’n’mash shop to serve the best of British seafood in the most humble of surroundings. A year later they found themselves a permanent site in Fitzrovia and quickly established Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack as one of London’s favourite little restaurants. Driven by their greed (for fresh crab and oysters) they set about expansion and opened their second restaurant, Bonnie Gull Seafood Cafe, on Exmouth Market in April 2014.
The first thing you need to know about Bonnie Gull’s Seafood Shack in Fitzrovia is it’s South-facing which means even more spring sunshine for even more of the day. The second thing you need to know is their daily changing lunch menu starts with a host of seasonal sharing plates from salt cod scotch eggs to Isle of Uist cockles. We insist you sit in the sun, we do not insist you share.
