Fins & Forks

About Fins & Forks

Fins & Forks was created during the pandemic by chef, fisherman and sustainable seafood advocate, Michael King. A place where fishing meets food, the business has 3 main facets. 'Bait to Plate' experiences, the smokehouse, and the Chef's Table. Michael has been a professional chef for over 2 decades and has worked all over the world with some incredibly talented people. During his time in the kitchen he has had the honour of cooking for numerous world leaders, VIP's, and royalty. A passionate (and somewhat obsessive) angler since childhood Michael has always loved the challenge of trying to catch something himself and turn it into something special on the plate. Outside of work he continues to chase that elusive first place in the 'All England Squid Fishing Championships'

Booking Policy

For all 'Bait to Plate' experiences there is a minimum booking number of 2 persons unless selecting our individual (and therefore waiting list) tickets. 

Unfortunately due to the kitchen environment we cannot accommodate under 12's on our experience days. Where children's tickets are offered they will not be able to use knives or any of the equipment in the kitchen themselves and must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We class a child as someone under the age of 16. 

As is sometimes the case, conditions can get the better of us and it can become unviable to fish. 
If weather means we cannot fish at all we will reschedule your booking with us, and if that is not possible we will refund your money. We do fish in the rain!

We always ensure our kitchen is stocked with the target species to match your package so you will always get to prepare, cook and enjoy them (even if on that rare occasion, you do not manage to catch one)

As stated elsewhere gift vouchers are non refundable
