Lights dimmed and corks popped. We settled down to a delicious feast at the ultimate property for a celebration, Little Moiety in Rock with Cam, founder of Lobster Box.

We catch up with Cam over a lobster or two to find out more...
What is the Lobster Box?
Our fundamental aim is to prioritize the use of fresh, seasonal Cornish seafood and deliver the best flavour that North Cornwall has to offer. With convenient, minimal-cook seafood boxes and unforgettable private dining evenings, Lobster Box is designed to enhance a holiday experience.
What does Cornwall mean to you?
I grew up in Cornwall and North Cornwall holds a special place in my heart. It's golden beaches, rugged coastline and energetic foodie scene make it a hotspot for seafood enthusiasts. Being able to source the freshest and finest ingredients directly from this region allows me to showcase the true flavours and essence of the Cornish seafood experience.
Where did you passion for cooking start?
My seafood adventure really started at the age of 19 whilst working in New Zealand on a deep-sea trawler. Surrounded by the finest and freshest fish, I pursued a career as a chef and continued travelling. I picked up authentic curry making tips, discovered secret ingredients and followed my passion for exceptional seafood, packed full of flavour. I settled my feet into the sand in 2016 when I ran my own restaurant on the Isles of Scilly and have now returned to sunny Cornwall with the Lobster Box.
Tell us more about your Lobster boxes
Delivered right to your doorstep, our seafood boxes require little to no cooking, allowing guests to effortlessly enjoy restaurant-quality meals in the comfort of their holiday retreat.

Tell us about your Cornish seafood wine and dine service
Available for groups of six people upwards, I can tailor an evening to each client's request whether it's providing a full four-course sit down meal, to a seafood style garden party or gnarly BBQ. Basically, I can be pretty flexible & am happy to adapt for each client. I can also supply additional servers if necessary.
Where is your seafood sourced?
All our seafood is sourced locally from Padstow and Newquay fisherman. One of my main suppliers is also the accordion player from the Fisherman's Friends!
