Loch Fyne seafood counters are planned for Dobbies stores across the UK with more opening in the coming months. Staff from each store will be trained at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar and delicatessen in Argyll, (See our visit here),  will be on hand to advise customers about the seafood products on offer.

Loch Fyne Oysters Managing Director Cameron Brown said,

Dobbies customers can now go home with smoked salmon or fresh oysters knowing that exactly the same products are being served to diners in the finest hotels in the world. Our responsible farming practices also complementDobbies’ environmentally friendly approach to gardening by sourcing all their plants from the UK.”
