Hull seafood restaurant’s monster halibut will serve dozens of hungry customers
A sea fish restaurant in Hull proudly showed off another monster halibut it was supplied to serve its hungry customers.
Popular seafood The Humber Fish Co restaurant has shared a behind-the-scenes look at monster halibut being prepared before it’s later served. The catch of the day is 96 pounds, about 40 kilos, and surprisingly not the biggest halibut they’ve ever had.
In August, the seafood restaurant featured a 131-pound halibut, supplied by Hodgson Fish. This time the monstrous catch came from Hull-based Neptune Fish, the other main supplier to Humber Fish Co.

Owner and chef James Stockdale said of the giant new fish: “It was a baby compared to our biggest one. I’ve eaten a 70kg one before. The more I buy the more fish I get. the bigger the discount I buy, the bigger the discount to offer to the customer, because it’s a very expensive fish.” He added that the latest giant halibut cost the restaurant £750.
The seafood restaurant is set to launch a brand new menu next week. “There will be plenty of fish bought on the day from the East Coast, from Bridlington to Grimsby.” Supplies will be mainly Hull-based, such as sea bass and turbot, but the change will allow the restaurant to be more detailed to the customer about the origin of the fish.
The restaurant is incredibly popular and people are advised to book at least two weeks in advance for peak weekend times. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday and from 12 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. from Thursday to Saturday.
