Opening times and prices


Due to the current weather and the next 48 hours forecast, we will not be opening for fishing this weekend, Saturday 3 March 2018. Our customers and employees safety is our highest priority in these situations and with the platforms, jetty and boats covered in ice and snow, there is too much risk for us to allow our fishing season to begin.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes but hope you understand our main concern is that the service we offer does not endanger anyone. Our new opening date will be Saturday 10th March 2018 and we look forward to seeing you then.
