The Hook and Line has a wealth of wonderful local and national partners, from fishermen to cake bakers, rum distillers and floral display makers! Here's our A list!
Our Fishing Family
A shoreline boat, the Elin D fishes within a six-mile radius, off the Plymouth coast, using the hand line technique, from where we take our name. The crew on The Elin D includes the entire Squire family, Ben, John, Sid, Dylan and Elin along with our very own chef and fishing aficionado, Amber!
Skipper, Chris Wonnacott, and deckhand, Gordon Scotchman, are the team on fishing vessel, Sidney Rose. A coastal boat, operating 20 miles off the Plymouth coast, Sidney Rose fishes the deeper waters, catching a variety of species, on our menu, such as mackerel, gurnard, seabass, cuttlefish and scallops.
Barbican Rose is a modern 12 metre fishing boat, skippered by Nick Jones, with Euan Ogg. These guys catch the high value, prime fish, including dover sole, plaice, turbot and monkfish.
Our delicious cakes are handmade, locally, by small business owner, Amanda Lee. Bake Away Plymouth is a micro-bakery with a social heartbeat. Through sales of cakes, cakesicles and dessert street food, Bake Away runs quarterly pudding clubs for people living in social isolation in Plymouth and the surrounding areas.
